DOUALA, Cameroon (AP) -- Cameroon coach Volker Finke has included Samuel Eto'o and Alex Song in his 23-man squad for the World Cup.

Finke kept the Chelsea striker and Barcelona midfielder in a final selection that showed no major surprises.

Tottenham defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto and strikers Vincent Aboubakar and Maxim Choup-Moting also made the cut on Monday, FIFA's deadline for World Cup squads to be registered.

Finke dropped five players from the larger group he took to Europe for a training camp in Austria and friendly games against Macedonia, Paraguay and his native Germany.

Among those to miss out were striker Mohammadou Idrissou and defender Jean-Armel Kana Biyik, whose father and uncle played at the 1990 World Cup in Italy when Cameroon became the first African team to make the quarterfinals.
