Eto'o headlines Cameroon squad

YAOUNDE, Cameroon -- Cameroon coach Volker Finke included veteran striker Samuel Eto'o and rising star Vincent Aboubakar in a provisional 28-man squad on Monday for next month's World Cup in Brazil.

Samuel Eto'o was included in Cameroon's 28-man preliminary World Cup squad.

The German coach's squad contained no surprises, with England-based defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Barcelona midfielder Alex Song and Rennes' Jean Makoun also making the cut.

Cameroon were the first African team to reach the World Cup quarterfinals in Italy in 1990 but have disappointed at the showpiece since then. Cameroon lost all three of their games in South Africa four years ago.

The 22-year-old striker Aboubakar had a standout season for Lorient in the French league, while captain Eto'o is set to play at his fourth World Cup.

Only two of Finke's initial 28 play in Cameroon, with the majority of the squad at Turkish, French, German or Spanish clubs.

Cameroon are in Group A with Mexico, Croatia and host Brazil. The squad will be cut to 23 for the tournament.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Charles Itandje (Konyaspor), Ndy Assembe (Guingamp), Sammy Ndjock (Fetihespor), Loic Feudjou (Coton Sport).

Defenders: Allan Nyom (Granada), Dany Nounkeu (Besiktas), Cedric Djeugoue (Coton Sport), Aurelien Chedjou (Galatasaray), Nicolas Nkoulou (Marseille), Armel Kana-Biyik (Rennes), Henri Bedimo (Lyon), Benoit Assou-Ekotto (Queens Park Rangers), Gaetang Bong (Olympiakos).

Midfielders: Eyong Enoh (Antalyaspor), Jean Makoun (Rennes), Joel Matip (Schalke), Stephane Mbia (Sevilla), Landry Nguemo (Bordeaux), Alex Song (Barcelona), Cedric Loe (Osasuna), Edgar Sally (Lens).

Forwards: Samuel Eto'o (Chelsea), Eric Choupo Moting (Mainz), Benjamin Moukandjo (Nancy), Vincent Aboubakar (Lorient), Achille Webo (Fenerbahce), Mohamadou Idrissou (Kaiserslautern), Fabrice Olinga (Zulte-Waregem).
