Mohammadou Idrissou was, for many observers, the main breakthrough player of the last few years for the Indomitable Lions, aside from Alexandre Song. But Idrissou provides everything that has been lacking for the Cameroonians. At nearly 30, the Yaounde native is playing the best football of his life and could get a good run at the World Cup due to his performances.

He was only called back up in 2006 after a 2003 debut, but now Idrissou is a regular with Paul Le Guen. The French manager loves his style of play, his tireless effort, his size, and most importantly his lack of selfishness in the penalty area.  

Very tall and able to get up to high balls, Idrissou is Samuel Eto’o’s favorite team-mate at the moment. So enamored is Eto’o with his style, Paul Le Guen even experimented with the Inter Milan player as a playmaker and Idrissou up top.

The plan failed as they did not score, but the willingness of Paul Le Guen to change his playing style for him should prove that Idrissou is very important to the coach’s plans and will be in South Africa.
