: World Cup 98 Live: Cameroon v Austria

Live coverage of the Group B encounter from the Stade Municipal in Toulouse (kick-off at 8pm).

Cameroon reached the quarter-finals in 1990 and came close to knocking out England, but four years later they failed to live up to those standards and endured an embarrassing tournament, which included conceding six goals to Russia. Their squad for France is much changed from 1994 and this year they hope to lead the African challenge. They will need to beat Austria if they are to advance to the next stage as the group is made up of Italy and Chile, who met earlier in the day. A potential star in the making is their young striker Joseph-Desire Job. Born in France of Cameroon parents, Job turned down the chance to play for the French Under-21 side and made his debut for Cameroon in the friendly against England last November.

Austria topped Scotland's qualifying group, but a recent 3-0 friendly defeat by the American team is perhaps a better reflection of their ability. Goal scoring has proved their major problem - they rely heavily on 34-year-old Toni Polster who scored seven times in the qualifying rounds. Midfielder Andreas Herzog is another mainstay of the side and, like Polster, is a veteran of Austria's last World Cup campaign. This is Austria's first finals since and the odds on their winning overall are very slim.

Introduced by Desmond Lynam with Alan Hansen and David Ginola, featuring commentary by John Motson with David Pleat.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
