FIFA Rank: 42
Coach: Volker Finke
Captain: Stephane Mbia
Nickname: Les Lions Indomptables (The Indomitable Lions)
Best AFCON finish: Winners (1984, 1988, 2000, 2002)
AFCON 2013 finish: Did not qualify
Cameroon are amongst the continent's most successful AFCON sides. Like Ghana, they have four titles to their credit - only Egypt, with seven wins, have won the competition more times.
The Indomitable Lions' first trophy success came in 1984, when they beat Nigeria 3-1 in the final in the Ivory Coast. Two years later Cameroon lost out on penalties to hosts Egypt, but made amends at the next edition of the tournament by beating Nigeria 1-0 in the final, which took place in Morocco.
The West Africans also finished in second position in 2008, again losing to Egypt, this time in Ghana.
Recent AFCON history for the Indomitable Lions does not however make for very good reading - they have not been able to qualify for the last two editions of the competition after having only made it as far as the quarter-finals in 2010.
After legendary striker Samuel Eto'o called time on his international career in the middle of last year, Stephane Mbia has taken over the captain's armband and also the role of the team's most accomplished player, having enjoyed a successful career in France, England and now Spain, where he plays for La Liga club Sevilla.
Mbia has a CV packed full of big tournament experience, having already been to two World Cups, this will be his third AFCON. The 28-year-old's presence in the middle of the park will be key to his side's hopes.
France-based defender Nicolas N'Koulou could also be an important member of the Cameroon team in Equatorial Gunea. Still only 24-years-old, N'Koulou is the most experienced member of the rear-guard with over 50 caps to his name and has to date enjoyed a successful career with Monaco and now Marseille, where he has been a regular starter over the last three seasons.
Enoh Eyong, who plays for Belgium's Standard Liege, will provide the steel and experience in the engine room for the Indomitable Lions.
Up front, Jean-Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting of FC Schalke 04 is a powerful and direct runner who has been a regular scorer for Cameroon since making his senior debut in 2010, while Vincent Aboubakar of Porto, Lyon's Clinton N'Jie and Franck Etoundi of FC Zurich could all trouble defences at AFCON 2015.
