Alex Song is long gone and forgotten as Cameroon build for the future

Cameroon's 4-0 defeat by Croatia at the World Cup this past summer was depressing for many reasons. Aside from the unfavourable scoreline and dreadful performance, it was a match that basically summed up Cameroon's tournament.

Following dysfunctional tactics, bickering teammates and Alex Song's ludicrous sending off for a needless elbow, a team that had been on the slide for a number of years finally stopped sliding. They hit rock-bottom. But rather than call it a one-off, a freak performance...

African Nations Cup preview Group D: Tough and unpredictable

Ivory Coast and Cameroon will both expect to go deep in the tournament.

Overview

Nearly-there teams over the past decade make up this group, all of whom come from the same region. West Africa is more than well-represented at the tournament -- 10 of the 16 teams hail from that side of the continent, with four in this group. Although both Ivory Coast (1992) and Cameroon (1984, 1988, 2000 and 2002) have won the competition before, none of the quartet has had the recent success even though they have all threatened to.

Ivory Coast have finished in the final four in the...

Eto'o retirement unconvincing

Samuel Eto'o explained how manager Roberto Martinez persuaded him to join Everton, as the Cameroonian striker signs on a two-year deal.

Oops, he's done it again. Samuel Eto'o has announced his retirement from international football, and this time, he says there will be no turning back. Eto'o described his decision as "definitive," but there may be more drama to follow.

Eto'o was left out of the latest Cameroon national squad for the first round of African Nations' Cup (ANC) qualifiers, which will see the Indomitable Lions travel to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and host Ivory Coast. By implication, he was also axed as...

Finding value in Ebosse's life, death

Albert Ebosse, shown converting a penalty in his side's 2-1 loss in the Algerian League, was killed after being struck in the head with an object thrown from the stands as his team left the pitch.

How much is a life worth?

The amount of the person's salary? The amount of at least 15 other salaries? The closure of a stadium? The suspension of a club? Or the halting of a football league as a whole?

The Algerian Football Federation has decided that Albert Ebosse's life was worth all of that and more. Following his death, caused by a head injury after he was struck by an object hurled from a fan, administrators have ordered several sanctions designed to remember the Cameroonian forward, ensure...

Match-fixing: More regulation needed

OK, so at some point in the past two weeks (at what point -- as you'll see -- is crucially important) a convicted match-fixer named Wilson Raj Perumal decided to chat with a German journalist from the magazine Der Spiegel.

They chose to do so on Facebook (possibly because it's still 2009 where they live, or maybe because Snapchat was unavailable). In the course of the conversation, according to Der Spiegel, Perumal claimed that the Cameroon squad at the World Cup had "seven bad apples in it" and...

Africa departs Brazil in disappointment

Cameroon officials will investigate claims from a German magazine that seven players were involved in match-fixing at the World Cup.

Africa's World Cup is over. It did not end as the continent would have liked, without the results it had hoped for and with no new ground broken. In fact, old ground wasn't even covered as none of the five African teams that entered the tournament will feature in the quarterfinals.

Given the huge impact made on home soil in 2010, underperformance was the standout failing of the African countries at this World Cup. Each was slow out of the starting blocks, with only one team winning its opening match...
