Even the great Pele made a remark prior to Cameroon's match against Chile in 1982, that small countries like Cameroon should be excluded from the world cup. He argued that no one would want to go watch Cameroon play Chile. He was supported by the then coach of Italy who later apologized only after Cameroon almost knocked his team out of the competition.The success of Cameroon in 82 and 1990, paved the way for many African players to move to Europe. It is for this reason why I fail to take sides with Eto'o, (even though a big fan)bad mouthing Roger Milla.


NO doubt it is the 1982 and 1990 Cameroon’s national team that opened the door to the rest of African teams and they are the reason for increase in the number African countries participant in the World cup. Unfortunately, the recent Cameroon’s National Team in World cup has been disappointment, especially the 2014 team (totally disgrace). It seems to me that the teams in the 80’s understood that they were playing for their nation and even for the entire continent, the players nowadays are just interested showing of their individual skills and just plain selfish.
