 Cameroon have reached agreements to play Portugal and Argentina in friendlies ahead of the World Cup.

All three teams will compete at the tournament in Brazil, which takes place from 12 June to 13 July.
Cameroon will meet Portugal on 5 March and on 6 June they will face Argentina, who boast three-time world player of the year Lionel Messi.

The Indomitable Lions will also play Germany on 1 June , as they aim for the best preparation possible.

Volker Finke’s side have a difficult task to make an impact in the World Cup, having been drawn in Group A with Brazil, Mexico and Croatia.

Portugal and Argentina, who are placed fifth and third respectively in the latest Fifa rankings, will provide 50th-placed Cameroon with top quality opposition before the tournament.

And for the European and South American giants, Cameroon will give them a taste of what it will be like to face African opponents in Brazil as both have been drawn against teams from the continent.

Portugal are in Group G alongside Germany, United States and Ghana, while Argentina will meet Iran, Bosnia and reigning African champions Nigeria in Group F.

    If only the lions would pull through with all these because these guys lack patriotism at times and I really wonder why they are paid so much for nothing. Song and co and Eto'o and his stooges should keeptheir differences aside for the sake of Cameroon

    These are signs of good preparation. Encouraging signals from Finke and Mr. Owana. Only Roger Mila should learn to keep his mouth shut and stop mendling.
