From all indications Song is still hoping to play two upcoming World Cup tourneys with the Lions. I encourage him to be optimistic and be determined as he is still only 30.If players like Maradonna, Milla, Maldini, and hosts of other top stars played for as long as in their 40's, then no body pains in Song's decision. Presently players like Carlos, Zidane, Khan, and Figo are living testimonies of aged but talented players, who are still strong and ready to deliver the goods for their countries national sides.

Henry Njala Quan made a resounding success in his invitation of Lions captain. I think with this move most youths will be encouraged to take soccer professionally than for pleasure or leisure as is the case with most talented youths down town. The NQSA is been very important in Limbe and its vicinity but due to its lack of media and orientation, it has been under-rated by its French counterparts like Brasserie Du Cameroun Sports School in Douala, and host of others, making it difficult for talents within the Anglophone area to be excelled nationally and internationally.

A case in point is the Kumba Lakers Academy in Kumba whose trainees during a youths competition in Yaoundé won the Cup and the best player award was conferred to Oku(he has been called just once to wear the Cadet jersey).During this competition these players were embedded with gifted talents and fascinating performances which thrilled spectators at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium.

But what strikes me most is that none of these young guys from Kumba Lakers were called up to partake in the cadet but for Oku, who was never even selected with the final 23 players. This amongst other related tragedies are the dilemma facing Anglophones in this field of soccer where deliberate discrimination by the Francophone is the order of the day. Little doubt Atem Valentine who hails from Buea (one time best player in Cameroon with the Mount Cameroon squad), had to change his nationality to a Ghanaian, for he hopes to play with them one day.
