Cameroon topped Tunisia 4-1 in the second leg of their African World Cup playoff Sunday to book a place in Brazil next June. It’s Cameroon’s African-best seventh World Cup berth. It joins fellow continental powers Nigeria and the Ivory Coast at next summer’s tournament.
Cameroon qualifying is a positive development on a few different fronts. For one, their yellow socks, red shorts, green shirts combo is aesthetically great. It’s probably going to be the best-looking kit next summer in Brazil. Cameroon is also home to one of the best nicknames in world soccer: the Indomitable Lions. Whether or not they can improve on their 31st place showing at the 2010 tournament remains to be seen.
beIN Sport’s Ray Hudson described the Lions qualification as only he can: “Looks like there’s gonna be some hoochie coochie in Cameroon tonight, and raining eyes in Tunisia.”
