FIFA opened disciplinary proceedings against Cameroon after their 3-0 loss to England in the round of 16 of the Women's World Cup on Sunday, during which members of the team became upset following two VAR decisions.

On the surface, Cameroon reaching the knockout rounds of the Women's World Cup in France came as a bit of a shock, but a look at the team's record suggests otherwise.

The Indomitable Lionesses finished third in their group thanks to a last-gasp 2-1 win over New Zealand in their final group game, making it back to back trips out of the round robin stage. They did it in 2015 too, winning two of their three matches in Canada before losing to China in the Last 16.
