[World Cup] Key Player Review: Cameroon – Alex Song

On the pitch, Song plays a more cultured role than he’s accustomed to at club level, breaking forward from midfield to provide clever passes for the attacking players.

He’s the Song who topped Arsenal’s assist charts in his final campaign in London, rather than the Song who played as a pure destroyer.

Cameroon need to find the right position for him, though.

It’s not yet clear whether he’ll start at the base of a midfield triangle or alongside Eyong Enoh—Cameroon have used both formats in the warm-up games—but they need to maximise Song’s impact.
