If social media commentaries could take a player to the lions den then, 27-year old Cotonsport of Garoua goalkeeper Narcisse Nlend Junior should be in the den by now.
The Cotonsport of Garoua goalkeeper in his debut campaign for the Cotonites has been simply sensational in his first nine games at the Club.
Nlend who only conceded against Unisport of Sokode and JS Kabylie so far in all competitions displayed his qualities again on Wednesday in Garoua.
The shot stopper made a minimum of six timely stops to keep his side in the match-day two game against current champions RS Berkane as Cotonsport won it by two goals to nil thanks to goals from Marou Souaibou and Arnaud Sanou Sibiri.
The net minders moment of magic midway in the second-half which saw him make four consecutive saves in a moment against three forwards raised the voice of the social media.
Besides congratulations messages from fans and neutrals, the same goalkeeper singled-out for praises by coach Denis Lavagne in Cotonsport’s one nil defeat against JS Kabylie is being offered to coach Antonio Conceição as a serious option.
The Indomitable Lions lead trainer has picked four top class goalkeepers for the upcoming African cup of Nations qualifier games against Cape Verde Island and Rwanda but the performance of Nlend should give his national team coach some positive headache.
With six clean sheets in eight CAF Confederation cup games this season, Nlend is certainly having the time of his life especially as his side is also playing well and getting results.
Having been a part of the Cameroon team at the 2020 African nations championship, it is only a matter of time before he catches the attention of coach António Conceição Da Silva Oliviera who has already proven to be a trainer that gives opportunities to all good Cameroonian footballers.
