Cameroon at the World Cup

Cameroon first participated in the World Cup in 1982. The country's best performance at the world cup was in 1990, where they staged one of the most famous winning runs from an underdog. They made it through to the quarterfinals beating Argentina, Romania and Colombia along the way.

In 2010, they were Africa's best hope, but they did not advance past the group stage. Cameroon qualified in 2014, and again in 2022.
