Debut man Sebastien Bassong nets the decisive goal against Liverpol for Spurs (PA)
Parisian-born Sebastien Bassong is disappointed at the moment. After playing some of the best football of his life, the recent call-up was hyped up in the Cameroonian press, and it seemed that he was the heir apparent to Rigobert Song. But at the last minute something went wrong and it is still unclear why he lost his spot in the squad.

Not called up to defend his country’s colours in Angola, he was replaced by his own team-mate Benoit Assou-Ekotto in the squad, but it is Nicolas N’koulou and Aurelien Chedjou he should be worried about this time around.

The Clairefontaine Youth alum missed the African Cup of Nations, but that may be the last competition he’s absent for a very long time. With some performances lacking during the competition, Le Guen called him back up and Bassong will definitely be one of the most exciting new players at the World Cup if he gets playing time for the Indomitable Lions.

Did you know?

Sebastien Bassong was called-up by René Girard with the French U-21 team. After playing two games, he decided to switch and play for the Cameroonian Senior squad.
