CAMEROON CHARMED FEW at the World Cup as they arrived late, squabbled over win bonuses and finished their three games without a point.

The Cameroon squad departed Brazil this afternoon and several media outlets were present to record their low-key farewell. There was a smattering of Cameroon fans waiting to wave goodbye to the team bus but one of them caught striker Samuel Eto’o's attention.

Eto’o, who has struggled with a knee injury during the tournament, approached the boy to give him a hug. Emotions got the better of the crestfallen fan and soon had Eto’o close to tears.
