DAVID Ngog is on the verge of turning his back on France to accept an offer of international football from Cameroon.

Despite featuring for Les Bleus at every junior level, reports in Africa claim the Wanderers striker has agreed to represent the country of his father’s birth.Cameroon first approached the 22-year-old in 2009 when he was playing for Liverpool, but after an interjection from Arsenal midfielder Alex Song and national team coach Denis Lavagne, it appears Indomitable Lions have finally landed their man.

“As I am talking to you now we have already started making arrangements for him to obtain a Cameroon passport, and we hope and pray that France, for which he played as a youth, will not stand in our way,” said Cameroon spokesperson Junior Binyam.

Should Ngog be given the all-clear by FIFA to switch allegiance, he could feature in May and June’s World Cup qualifiers against Congo DR and Libya ,and an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea-Bissau.If Cameroon do qualify for the 2013 tournament in South Africa, he would stand to miss up to a month of next season for Wanderers, with the competition running between January 19 and February 10.
