Home advantage for Cameroon?

Playing an important tournament in your own country is an advantage in the eyes of many football experts. But is this really the case? When we look at the history, we see that the host country won 11 of the 32 editions. An interesting average, but again not so convincing to say that it is a run-down case. The pressure of the media? Bad luck? It's hard to say if Cameroon really benefits from playing at home. Other countries such as Senegal and Algeria are of course not to be underestimated and have a lot of quality in the team. What do you think?
