The FIFA World Cup, sometimes called the Football World Cup or the Soccer World Cup, but usually referred to simply as the World Cup, is an international association football competition contested by the men's national teams of the members of Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), the sport's global governing body. The championship has been awarded every four years since the first tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946, due to World War II.

The tournament consists of two parts, the qualification phase and the final phase (officially called the World Cup Finals). The qualification phase, which currently take place over the three years preceding the Finals, is used to determine which teams qualify for the Finals. The current format of the Finals involves 32 teams competing for the title, at venues within the host nation (or nations) over a period of about a month. The World Cup Finals is the most widely-viewed sporting event in the world, with an estimated 715.1 million people watching the 2006 tournament final.

Cameroon have appeared in the finals of the FIFA World Cup on seven occasions, the first being in 1982 where they drew all three group games and finished in 17th position. In 1990 Cameroon reached the Quarter-Final stage before being defeated 3-2 by England. Roger Milla at the age of 42, became the oldest player ever to appear in a World Cup finals at the 1994 FIFA World Cup.

They have made their seventh appearance at the finals in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.[1][2]
