Cameroon's 'Les Lions Indomptables,' or 'The Indomitable Lions,' have qualified for the World Cup more than any other African team (a total of 7 times). 'The Indomitable Lions' will be looking to recreate their best World Cup run from 1990 when they made it to the quarter-finals. The current squad will be led by world class striker & 4-time African Player of the Year Samuel Eto'o, as well as Barcelona midfielder Alex Song and Benoît Assou-Ekotto. The Indomitable Lions' will be playing against host nation Brazil, Luka Modrić's Croatia and Mexico for a chance to make it out of Group A.

Back in March, Cameroonian MCs Askia and J Milly (of Fluriboyz) joined forces for “Allez Les Lions," an upbeat anthem with a chorus that recycles the classic olé olé olé soccer chant. Watch the Indomitable Lions-dedicated music video, by Buea-based director Mr Adrenaline, below.

In addition, Cameroonian group The 4 released the infectious "Venez Célébrer" ("Come Celebrate") — a song that blends a high-paced beat with guitar plucks, French/English raps and group vocals. Watch the backyard soccer video for "Venez Célébrer," also directed by Mr Adrenaline, below.

How Davido's 'FEM' Became the Unlikely #EndSARS Protest Anthem

When Nigerian youth shout the line "Why everybody come dey para, para, para, para for me" at protests, it is an act of collective rebellion and rage, giving flight to our anger against the police officers that profile young people, the bureaucracy that enables them, and a government that appears lethargic.
