La trêve internationale c’est fini….By: Richard | October 20th, 2012
International duty is finally over hooray! But before we can get back to business lets take a quick look on how are internationals did on the world stage shall we?
As much as I would have like to see Steve get the chance to start in the friendly with Japan he did not. Perhaps the Valenciennes match played a role, maybe not but our captain found himself relegated to the bench.
Saw action in both of Les Bleus matches with Spain and Japan. Came on as a substitute in both games linking up well with his teammates. Desperately want him to get that starting spot as I think he deserves it.
During Ghana’s qualifier with Malawi, he was substituted and therefrom reacted in a negative way. Refusing to shake hands with teammates and voicing outrage towards his coach, Andre could face repercussions should he not choose not to apologize. I hope Andre takes care of this as I don’t want to see him dismissed from the national team especially with the cup of nations right around the corner /s
The sopa opera that is the Les Lions Indomptables, has seen the team as of recent making headlines for the wrong reasons. Going in against Cape Verde down two goals in aggregate, N’koulou and company failed to overtake Cape Verde in the second leg and thus are eliminated from the cup of nations. Bad for Cameroon but in a way good for OM as we wont have to do without him come January.
Starting to become a regular on the Gabon squad, who unfortunately lost to Togo this week 2-1.
The best news however is that all of our guys came out of international duty unscathed. While the others got a much needed break. Now onto Sundays match with Troyes allez l’OM!
