Fifa World Cup: Maraotter backs Cameroon

00:59, Jun 18 2014

A scoreless match between Brazil and Mexico meant a scoreless day for our football pundits - none of the three saw the draw coming. 

Diego Maraotter has packed a sad with Croatia after their opening match loss against Brazil saw his football picking career off to a shaky start. 

Maraotter, an Asian small-clawed otter, has discovered he has clawless otter relations in Cameroon, and is picking the Africans for the win tomorrow. 

"No claws, no worries. Cameroon sounds like macaroon, and those little cake things look like good noms."

Sports journalist Tony Smith, while not opposed to baked goods, isn't using them to pick the result of tomorrow's match. 

He's plumping for Croatia, and fellow football writer Sam Worthington agrees.

Cameroon is a long way from the halcyon days of Roger Milla and would have lost their opener 3-0 if it wasn't for two wrongly disallowed Mexico goals, according to Worthington.
