Brasilia, Brazil: Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar said that his team only thinks about achieving victory against Cameroon Monday and snatching first place in Group A of the FIFA World Cup.

Cesar said the 'Selecao' will play the game without thinking about who they will meet in the last 16 round, adding that being on the top of Group A is the goal and they are not afraid to face any team.

The Cameroon tie will be held Monday at the Estadio Nacional Mané Garrincha here after Netherlands face Chile to decide the team who will take the lead in Group B -- which will give Brazil a chance to determine their opponent in the last 16.

Cesar praised Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto'o, who will pose a danger to Brazil although his team is already out of the competition.

About Brazil's performance in the first two games against Croatia and Mexico, César praised his teammates' performance, saying they are "getting better with time".
