Born in France to a Cameroonian father, David Ngog, 22, has played for all levels of France junior national teams – the U16, U17, U18, U19 and U21 – but has failed to make a way to the senior team.
During these times, Cameroon officials courted the Bolton player in vain to play for the Indomitable Lions. He had shunned a number of envoys from his fatherland, but finally yielded this week when Arsenal’s Alex Song and Cameroon new coach Denis Lavagne met him for more talks on the issue.
In the next few days Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) will send officials to England to issue the former Paris Saint Germain and Liverpool six-foot-three-inch forward a Cameroonian passport, according to a Goal.com source at the body.
Quite disappointed at the Lions’ 1-0 win over Guinea Bissau in the preliminary round of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying, the Fecafoot are leaving no stone unturned to reinforce the set up ahead of the next round and the 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.
