Let the chap represent his nation. God forbid that the Africans should put their nation before their club whereas if he were a European I seriously doubt that he would be taking heat from the coach. The constant disrespect towards these players needs to stop. FIFA must assert itself to protect third world countries from the onslaught of European clubs who use their position of power and influence to undermind said countries. The audacity Coppell has to be "fumming" at Cameroon for calling up a player much needed to their defence must be noted and remembered. The age of slavery is over, but remnants of that time in history, it seems, survive.
