Cameroon World Cup 2014: Team Guide for FIFA Tournament

It has been a dismal four years for Cameroon.

After a dreadful time at the last World Cup—when they lost all three matches and were the first team eliminated—they proceeded to fail to qualify for the African Championships in both 2012 and 2013.

In the process, they lost a play-off to the minnows of Cape Verde, who had never before qualified for the African high table.

Morale was also ravaged after eternal disputes between Samuel Eto’o and the federation, while the squad appeared to be hopelessly unbalanced and devoid of creativity.

It is to manager Volker Finke’s credit that he managed to guarantee a place in the World Cup, although the Indomitable Lions will need to overcome one of Brazil, Mexico and Croatia to make the knock-out stages for the first time since 1990.
