Cameroon boss Paul Le Guen has expressed his disappointment at leading the African giants to a first round World Cup exit. Cameroon lost 2-1 to Denmark yesterday, ensuring that they remain rooted to the bottom of Group E. With only a game against Holland, who head the group with six points, remaining, the Africans have no chance of progress.

"It’s a big disappointment, we had high hopes", said Le Guen. The Frenchman also confirmed that he has no intention of resigning straight away and will instead leave his fate in the hands of the Cameroon FA.

"I do not intend to resign. The FA will advise me after July, which is the end of my contract. I’ve tried to do the best for Cameroonian football, so I fear nothing. I’m just sad for the people of Cameroon."

Tipped by many as the African team to watch, Cameroon have flopped at the World Cup yet again. While the memories of a run to the quarter-final in 1990 live on, the national team have so far failed to prove themselves worthy successors to the class of Roger Milla.
