Bong has played in all 12 of Albion's Premier League games this season and is expected to lead out his country against a star-studded Brazil side at Stadium MK.

Brazil go into the international friendly after a 1-0 win against Uruguay at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium on Friday when captain Neymar scored the only goal from the penalty spot.

Brazil also include Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino and Reds keeper Allison in their squad, along with Barcelona midfielder Arthur and Everton forward Richarlison.

Cameroon lost their latest match 2-0 away to Morocco in a Africa Cup of Nations group clash on Friday.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Cameroon coach Clarence Seedorf said: "Playing Brazil is always special.

“It will be a huge experience for all of the players and for us coaches too."
