Cameroon recently made an announcement on the appointment this summer for the new head coach to be Clarence Seedorf. Well, the choice of one of the high-profile names did catch the attention of everyone. It seemed like a glamour choice which put Cameroon in the limelight. Seedorf would be guided by his fellow Patrick Kluivert, the former Dutch International. When the fortune of Cameroon was stuck as it failed to achieve the World Cup last season, the appointment of the duo did appear to bring things under control. Cameroon has achieved several Cup of Nations titles and the Olympic gold medal in 2000 Sydney in addition to 1990 World Cup quarter finals. This national team has mostly been at the forefront as far as Asian football is concerned.
