Cameroon are getting to be regulars in the World Cup. This is their fourth appearance out of the last five World Cups.

Cameroon also qualified for the finals in: 1982, 1990, and 1994.

Cameroon made the world take notice when they defeated the defending champions Argentina 1-0 in the opening match of Italia 90.

They were also leading England 2-1 in the quarter-finals, after being 1-0 down, before Gary Lineker closed the door on them by scoring two penalties.

The Roger Millar wiggle was at it again in USA94, when he became the oldest man to score a goal in the World Cup finals -- at the age of 42.

Dirty or clumbsy, this Cameroon side had the whistle blown against them a plenty. Unfortunate to have a goal disallowed in their last game against Chile.
