German-born Jean-Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has already shown his striking abilities at senior international level for Cameroon in preparation for the 2014 World Cup, having scored nine goals in just 19 appearances. Currently enjoying his spell at FSV Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga, Choupo-Moting will be instrumental for the Group A competitors and his partnership with Samuel Eto'o should make him a profitable betting tip to place in individual goalscorer markets against the likes of Brazil, Croatia and Mexico.
Born in Hamburg, the Cameroonian spent his youth career at Teutonia before spending in a further three years at Altona between 2001-2004.
He then switched to Hamburger SV the following season and by 2007 he made his first professional appearance for the side in a Bundesliga match in August 2007, played as a 69th-minute substitute against Hannover 96.
He made 24 showings for the reserve squad and a further 23 first team appearances in which three goals went against his name until 2011. A loan spell at FC Nürnberg interloped his time in between, where he bagged five more goals in his 25 appearances across the 2009/10 season.
In May 2011, Choupo-Moting signed a three-year contract with Bundesliga side FSV Mainz 05 on a free transfer, enjoying a pleasant debut season with the club and scoring a total of 10 goals. An injury curtailed the majority of his 2012/13 season however, the Cameroon striker currently on 18 goals from 65 showings.
Choupo-Moting's first call-up for the Cameroon national squad arrived in May 2010 after showing promise for Germany's U19 and U21 sides, making 19 starts for Cameroon since and scoring nine goals in all appearances.
In six World Cup qualifying appearances for the 2014 edition, Choupo-Moting scored twice, having previously been a part of all three games in their 2010 World Cup group stage exit.
