Daniel Armand Ngom Kome is one of the most dynamic Cameroonian midfielders. The retired professional footballer has won two major continental titles with the Indomitable Lions coupled with a daring career in Spain where he spent a majority of his days.
During his nine years with the Lions,he won the 2002 African Cup of Nations and the 2000 Summer Olympic Games. The former Segunda Division champion ( 2006/2007 ) featured in the 2002 World Cup and totals 35 caps for country.
He moved to Spain in 1999 after spending five years playing domestic football. The Olympic gold medalist played for Lycée de Banjourn(1995), Stade Banjourn in 1996 and finally Coton Sport of Garoua (1997,1998, 1999) from where he joined Atletico Madrid B.
Unlike other Cameroonian footballers aboard, ‘gom Kome dedicated himself to Spanish football. Interestingly,he has had game time with almost all the divisions. He joined Levante UD, at the time a third division club but made his La Liga debut shortly with Getafe where he enjoyed prominence. Despite his impressive run,he signed with second division club Cuidad de Murcia.
The year 2006 was a challenging one for the Cameroonian midfielder. He started the season with RCD Mallorca but left for Real Valladolid during the January transfer window, on a two-and-a-half-year deal. However, after battling with playtime, he managed to switch over to CD Tenerife in 2008 although still under contract.
In 2009, the 39-year-old was the architect of Girona’s promotion to the top tier after seven year in the inferior league. The remarkable midfielder featured regularly for the Canarians in the following two years, although they suffered consecutive relegations.
In total, the former indomitable Lion has made 293 appearances in Spain and has scored 27 goals.
Happy Birthday Daniel N’gom Kome.
