DOUALA, Cameroon - Cameroon coach Volker Finke has included Samuel Eto'o and Alex Song in his 23-man squad for the World Cup, where the West African nation hopes to reach knockout stages for the first time in 24 years.

Cameroon was the first African team to make the World Cup quarter-finals in Italy in 1990 but has won just one game in the four tournaments it has qualified for since, failing to get out of its group in 1994, 1998, 2002 and four years ago in South Africa.

Finke's squad was without any major surprises.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Choup-Moting also made the final squad.

"A team is a blend of talent," Finke said.

"For Brazil, we need efficiency and experience to cruise into the second round."

The German coach dropped five players from the larger group he took to Europe for a training camp in Austria.
