Cameroon were the first African team to reach the quarter-finals of the World Cup, in 1990, losing to England in extra time. In the opener of that tournament, Cameroon pulled off one of the biggest upsets in world soccer history, beating champions Argentina 1-0. Star player Roger Milla was the biggest name of the tournament, with his trademark corner flag dance goal celebrations. Cameroon have also won the African Nations Cup four times, and a gold medal at the 2000 Summer Olympics.
Cameroon have had several iconic players to play for Cameroon including Samuel Eto'o, Alexandre Song, Rigobert Song, Geremi, Patrick M'Boma, Pierre Webo and Pierre Wome.
Cameroon officially named the Republic of Cameroon are an African nation who play in the CAF confederation and they are coached by Jean-Paul Akono. The nation wear green shirts with red shorts and yellow socks with their away shirt is yellow and green with green shorts and socks. The home shirt faintly features a lion on the front due to their nickname being 'Les Lions Indomptables' meaning 'The Indomitable Lions'.
World Cup Kits
African side Cameroon have worn dark green home shirts which is usually complemented with red and yellow trim. Yellow is a common colour seen on the socks of the Cameroon home kit. For the 2014 World Cup the Cameroon home shirt is inspired by traditional Cameroonian culture featuring an enlarged watermark print on the front of a predominantly green shirt. Yellow and red trim have been included on the collar, numbers, branding and sleeve hems.
The Cameroon 2014 World Cup away shirt features the same template as the home shirt but in yellow and topped off with red trim. Both the home and away shirts feature a new special lion crest on the left side of the shirt symbolising the nation’s nickname Les Lions Indomptables meaning ‘The Indomitable Lions’.
Cameroon's first World Cup appearance was in 1982 and this saw Cameroon wear their basic green home shirt. Cameroon shirts in 1990 saw white hoops appear on the arms which was emblazoned by Roger Milla. In 1994 white disappeared for a red collar to be added as well as black sleeves added in 2002.
For the 2010 FIFA World Cup the kit was reduced to a very simplistic design involving the nation's green, red and yellow colours. The 2014 display sees the same colour scheme as 2010 but with an added tribal design on the front of the home shirt. The away kit sees the same design implemented but a yellow colour has been used.
A memorable attempt of a shirt for Cameroon was at the 2002 Africa Cup of Nations where they wore a shirt with no sleeves looking a lot like a basketball shirt. The shirt was deemed to break regulation and as a result black sleeves were added and the overall visual effect was maintained.
Arguably the most memorable Cameroon home shirt was the one used at the 1990 World Cup which resulted in their best ever finals result reaching the quarter-finals of the tournament hosted in Italy. The side wore a home shirt that comprised of their traditional green colour along with white trim on the sleeves, shoulders and collar. This side would have been the first African nation to reach the semi-finals but lost to England 1-0.
With German brand Puma taking over in the 90's Cameroon previously had adidas, Le Coq Sportif and many more as their kit manufacturers.
The dark green shirt of Cameroon is one of the most recognised not only in Africa but the world as it has featured several African football legends such as Roger Milla, Samuel Eto'o, Rigobert Song, Geremi and Alex Song.
