Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODPASTIMES -

WHEN Cameroon take to the field in South Africa, of all the African teams they will be the one most bur­dened by his­tory.

2010 will mark the In­domitable Lions’ sixth ap­pear­ance at the World Cup fi­nals since 1982, mak­ing them Africa's top rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

Cameroon's great­est World Cup suc­cess came in 1990, when a 38year-old Roger Milla in­spired them to be­come the first African team to reach the quar­ter fi­nals.

Cameroon's record since 1990 is poor but an im­pres­sive record in Africa Cup of Na­tions – two wins and a sec­ond place since 2000 – and the pres­ence of one of the world’s most feared for­wards in Sa­muel Eto'o make them danger­ous.
