Veteran striker Samuel Eto'o is on course to participate in his fourth World Cup, as he leads the strike force in Cameroon coach Volker Finke's 28-man preliminary roster released on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old Chelsea striker is part of a forward corps also headlined by Vincent Aboubakar, fresh off a strong season with Lorient in France's Ligue 1. The midfield will be anchored by FC Barcelona's Alex Song and Rennes' Jean Makoun, one of many France-based players and a veteran of Les Lions Indomptables' ill-fated 2010 World Cup campaign.
Tottenham Hotspur fullback Benoit Assou-Ekotto is perhaps the most recognizeable name along Cameroon's backline, while 31-year-old goalkeeper Charles Itandje is a French-born veteran who switched international allegiance to Les Lions in 2010 after making several appearances for Les Bleus.
Cameroon have been drawn into Group A and will meet Mexico in Natal in their opening match on June 13. They will travel into the Amazon region to face Croatia in Manaus on June 18 before a daunting matchup with tournament hosts Brazil in Brasilia on June 23.
