Cameroon National Football Team
The Indomitable Lions
The Cameroon national football team, nicknamed in French Les Lions Indomptables (The Indomitable Lions), is the national team of Cameroon. It is controlled by the Fédération Camerounaise de Football and has qualified seven times for the FIFA World Cup, more than any other African team (in 1982, 1990, 1994, 1998, 2002, 2010 and 2014). However, the team has only made it once out of the group stage. They were the first African team to reach the quarter-final of the World Cup, in 1990, losing to England in extra time. They have also won four Africa Cup of Nations titles.

The key player
Captain: Stephane Mbia
Mbia played in the FIFA U-17 World Cup Finland 2003 and scored his side's equalising goal four minutes into injury time in their dramatic 5-5 draw against Portugal, where the African side came back from five goals down. He moved on from the U-17s to play for the senior side and also represented his country at the Men's Olympic Football Tournament Beijing 2008. Mbia has become a vital player in the heart of Cameroon's side, playing seven times for the Indomitable Lions in the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ qualifiers to add to the 10 preliminary games he played en route to South Africa 2010, where he also featured in all three contests at the finals.
