The 6 foot 3 inches power-forward, Idrissou Mohammadou is celebrating his 39 birthday today, March 8, 2019.

The striker is known for his trade mark gesture of the up and down movement with his hand, instructing his teammates where exactly he wanted it played.

The former Lion scored 6 during his spell with the national team, in 39 appearances across all competitions.

The poacher started his emergence with the national team in the 1999 FIFA world youth championship, then he was amongst that record setting Cameroonian footballers, that went all the way to clinching silver in the 2003 Confederations cup, the rest as they say, is history.

Idrissou Mohammadou is a ‘journey man’ in the real sense; the center-forward has played for a staggering number of 15 club’s including German heavyweights like Eintracht Frankfurt, and Borussia Monchengladbach to name a few.

The darling of Cameroon football has scored around 138 goals and counting, for club and country, not bad at all for a striker.

The striker now plays for FC Kufstein, and there are still glimpses and cameos of a fine footballer he was, when he was a bit younger as he top’s the chart as highest goal scorer for his club. wishes Mohammadou Idrissou a fine birthday, and relish his comeback someday as a head coach.
