FIFA World Cup 2014: Cameroon 23 Man Squad

Cameroon have named their 23 man squad ahead of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.

The African side will be looking to recapture the kind of performances which saw them reach a best-ever quarter final in Italia ’90, but must do so from the difficult Group A against hosts Brazil, Croatia, and Mexico, who are all difficult international teams in their own right.

There is an opportunity for Cameroon, but, it is felt, they must win against Croatia and Mexico if they are to progress to the knock-out phase.
