Clarets International-On Yer Bikey to South Africa

Clarets International-On Yer Bikey to South Africa

Cameroon beat Morocco in their final game of the African Group A 2010 World Cup qualifiers yesterday (Saturday 14th November). The 2-0 victory confirmed that the Indomitable Lions would now ge going to South Africa for the World Cup finals next year. Cameroon finished top of their group with 13 points from six games.

This is good news for Clarets fans as we will now probably have one of our players to hopefully watch play in the competition. Andre Bikey has been a regular member of the Cameroon squad and although he didn't feature in the match yesterday, he will be hoping to book his passage to South Africa next summer.

Two other Clarets played for their country yesterday.

Steven Fletcher came on from the bench for Scotland after 55 minutes in their friendly against Wales in the Cardiff City Stadium.However by then the Scots were already 3-0 down after three first half goals with the Welsh team on fire and the Scottish lads looking jaded and clueless. The substitutions made no difference and the Welsh coasted to victory 3-0 with the future of Scotland manager, George Burley once more coming under scrutiny. Steven Caldwell was an unused substitute for Scotland.

There was better news for the Scotland Under 21 team. They had a thumping 4-0 victory over Azerbaijan in Baku yesterday in their UEFA Under 21 Championship qualifying game.Kevin McDonald played his full part in the victory and was not substituted.Brian Easton however did not feature and was not even named on the bench.

Given the news about Van Persies' injury it is just great to have the players back fit. Arsenal will be gutted and if Fletch had got injured in Wales I would have been too.

Good Luck to Andre - Will be nice to have a claret there! I suppose the nearest we have come recently is Dimi with the Greeks in 04?

Am I right in thinking that Dimi made a cameo appearance in that final? Where is he now?

Thinking exactly the same CP where is Dimi now I really rated Dimi at the time, also liked Nik the Greek anyone know where either of them are.

I might do an article on Dimi, I had to put this on backburner but could resurrect if anybody interested?

I'm not a big fan of International football but always make an exception for the World Cup. I can't wait for it to start and am thinking about taking the first couple of weeks of the mundial off work so that I can watch every game and get square eyes and a very pale complexion during the summer.
