Veteran striker Mohammadou Idrissou has been left out of Cameroon's final 23-man squad for the World Cup by coach Volker Finke.

Maccadbi Haifi forward Idrissou, 34, was one of five cuts as Finke whittled down his group to make the trip to Brazil.

Also missing out were Olympiakos defender Gaeteng Bong, Rennes defender Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik, Guingamp goalkeeper Ndy Assembe and Osasuna midfielder Cedric Loe.

Algeria coach Vahid Halilhodzic has also confirmed his final 23-man squad.

Crystal Palace midfielder Adlene Guedioura and on-loan Nottingham Forest forward Rafik Djebbour, who were both part of their country's squad at the 2010 World Cup, are among those to miss out.

The other five players cut from the 30-man provisional squad that Halilhodzic named last month are goalkeeper Azzedine Doukha, defender Nacereddine Khoualed, midfielders Ryad Boudebouz and Amir Karaoui, plus forward Foued Kadir.

Algeria start their World Cup campaign against Belgium on 17 June, with Russia and South Korea the other two teams in Group H.
