The Indomitable Lions are every bit as good as they were two years ago, and if anything are a little better.

The players are the same as those who won in Ghana and Nigeria, but with the benefit of more experience.

Cameroon have not let up since becoming champions and cruised through World Cup qualifying to become the first country to book their place alongside the hosts and the holders.

German coach Winfried Schafer, who took over in September, is an unknown quantity in Africa, but he brought some continuitity after Cameroon went through three coaches in as many months.

The Indomitable Lions are big, strong players who also have bags of skill and confidence.

It is a combination that again makes them the team to beat.
