[BRAZIL 2014] Chelsea's Samuel Eto'o leads Cameroon's 23-player roster for the World Cup. He is the only player who played in the 1998 World Cup and will be going to Brazil 2014.

This will be the fourth World Cup for Eto'o, who was the youngest player at 17 to play the 1998 finals in France. He also played for the Indomitable Lions in 2002 and 2010.

Cameroon recently concluded a camp in Austria and will face Moldova Saturday before traveling to Brazil, where it opens against Mexico on June 13.

IVORY COAST. Yaya Toure and brother Kolo Toure and Didier Drogba head Ivory Coast's star-studded roster for the World Cup. Kolo Toure was selected despite being diagnosed with malaria last week.

Other veterans include Roma forward Gervinho, Lille striker Salomon Kalou and Trabzonspor defender Didier Zokora.

Other players of note include young outside back Serge Aurier, regarded as the best defender in France's Ligue 1, and forward Wilfried Bony of Swansea City.

The Elephants, who lost to Bosnia-Herzegovina, 2-1, on Friday in St. Louis, play El Salvador Wednesday at Frisco Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

ALGERIA. Algeria coach Vahid Halilhodzic made his final cuts to get the Fennecs' roster down to 23 players. Late cuts were Rafik Djebbour and Foued Kadir, who started up front in Algeria's match against the USA four years ago. Six Algerian starters from the match the USA won, 1-0, in stoppage time return: Rais M'Bohl, Madjid Bougherra, Rafik Halliche, Mehdi Lacen and Hassan Yebda.
