In his first AFCON game of his career, midfield metronome Andre Franck Zambo-Anguissa caught the eye and was voted man of the match against Guinea-Bissau in the first game the indomitable Lions played in
The 24-year-old Fulham player currently solicited by Villarreal was amongst one of those that snubbed the national team for club duties in 2017_with these sort of performances coming this early in the competition, fans and football lovers are already forgetting about the differences in the past.
Zambo formed a formidable partnership with Arnaud Djoum just ahead of Mandjeck, the three building a diamond in the midfield. The former Marseille man played dirty and clean; helping out with the defending and threading those eye of the needle passes when needed upfront.
The dominance in the midfield helped with the 60 percent ball possession Cameroon had and eventually won the game. If Anguissa succeeds to get to the level the fans expect him to be, then, sorry Bassogog. Another AFCON best player could be on his way.
