It seemed that this will be the day that Cameroon will be resurrected from the dead after their last game on June 14th where they lost against Japan, especially  on the 33rd minute when Samuel Eto’O threw a powerful shot directly to the goal zone so fast that not even Thomas Sorensen or Nicklas Bendtner could block.

But Denmark were about to tame the lions when on the 61 minute mark they scored their first goal by Nicklas Bendtner and then Dennis Rommedahl, who closed the score board at 2-1, sending Cameroon home sad and heartbroken. Perhaps their captain, Samuel Eto’O took it the hardest. Cameron’s first time at any World Cup was back in 1982 in Spain for the World Cup after they withdrew from the 1966 World cup in England. In 1990 they were eliminated during the quarterfinals after Ireland defeated them and they didn’t qualify at the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

Denmark’s next opponent would be Japan on June 24th and Cameroon will face Netherlands. Take a look at the photos and video below.
