Holland will aim to wrap up top spot in Group E when they meet already-eliminated Cameroon in Cape Town on Thursday.

SKY BET ODDS Holland are 8/11 to beat Cameroon in Cape Town, with Cameroon 4/1 and the draw available at 5/2. Click here for all markets.

The Dutch are guaranteed a place in the last 16 while Cameroon are out having yet to garner a point at the 2010 World Cup.

Yet securing first place in Group E may not be a blessing for Holland, who would then meet the runners-up of Group F which includes world champions Italy.

The Dutch last met Cameroon in a friendly in 2006 when they triumphed 1-0 thanks to a goal from Ruud van Nistelrooy.

Robben return

Holland look set to be boosted by the return of key winger Arjen Robben, who will make a decision on his own fitness after recovering from a hamstring problem.

Head coach Bert van Marwijk will also be looking for an improvement from his side after two uninspiring wins so far.

Cameroon, meanwhile, are playing for pride as they look to finish their campaign on a high note.

Key striker Samuel Eto'o has admitted his disappointment at his nation's showing at the tournament.

And manager Paul Le Guen has spoken of his regrets in South Africa, although a positive win against Holland would lift the nation.
