Cameroon is making its seventh appearance in the World Cup, and looks to make it out of the group stage for the first time since 1990 – the team’s only trip to the knockout round. To do so, they must leap Croatia and Mexico in a Group A pod that also features host country Brazil.
With their current make up, goals may be hard to come by. Striker Samuel Eto’o is the team’s best scorer, whose strengths lie mainly in free kicks and finishes. The Indomitable Lions are also a young bunch in the back, and at keeper.
While Cameroon isn’t expected to advance to the Round of 16, they could make things interesting for the other teams in their group. In 2010 they played to three draws, and still have the ability to grind along in tough matches.
