Four-time winners Cameroon go into the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in red-hot form and looking to make up for the disappointment of their Final defeat in the last competition in Ghana two years ago.

They went down 1-0 to Egypt on that occasion, but under new French coach Paul Le Guen there is a new-found confidence in the Indomitable Lions and a belief that this could be their year.

One of the traditional powerhouses of the continent, they have qualified for all but one (1994) finals tournament since 1982, and in that time managed all four of their wins.

The 1980s were a fantastic period for the side and they claimed the 1984 and 1998 tournaments, with the core of that team going on to perform so admirably at the 1990 World Cup in Italy.

The 1990s were not much to write home about, but the turn of the centruty saw the side once again dominate as they won consecutive championships in 2000 and 2002.

A couple of quarterfinal appearances followed, but for that finals disappointment in Ghana, which will be a spur if ever they needed one for the Class of 2010 to go all the way.
