Team profile

Quarter-finalists in 1990 - when they were beaten in extra time by England - Cameroon failed to qualify for the last World Cup and have not progressed beyond the group stage since that memorable run to the last eight in Italy 20 years ago. They looked like missing out on this World Cup prior to the appointment of Frenchman Paul Le Guen, who inherited a side that had lost to Togo in the opening match of their second qualifying phase and had only one point after their first two games.

They have players of pedigree like captain Samuel Eto'o and Arsenal midfielder Alex Song, but defensive lapses remain a serious worry and were evident during a disappointing Africa Cup of Nations campaign in January, when they were eliminated by the eventual winners Egypt in the quarter-finals. Le Guen is hopeful that Tottenham full-back Benoit Assou-Ekotto, who missed that tournament, will help shore up Cameroon's back four.
