In 1982, Cameroon took part in its first World Cup. The nation’s best showing at the world cup came in 1990, when they pulled off one of the most illustrious comeback victories from an underdog. They defeated Argentina, Romania, and Colombia en route to reaching the quarterfinals.
They were Africa’s greatest chance in 2010, but they failed to get past the group stage. Cameroon was eligible in 2014 and will be in 2022.
