Idriss Carlos Kameni

The first time I ever saw Carlos Kameni play was in the 2000 Sydney olympics. Cameroon won the gold metal, beating Spain and Brazil (with 9 men) in the process. And he wasn't a spectator, he made instrumental saves throughout the tournament.

The performance heralded him as a future superstar. He was swooped up by Juventus and was part of there youth squad for a few years but he basically fell off the map.

But I remembered those saves, that poise for such a pressure filled situation. Carlos, I never forgot about you and thats why, when I saw you picked up by Espanyol this summer, I thought that you would begin to break out, and you have. Espanyol have had a superb season so far very close to the top of the league (3rd at this moment) and some of the credit is deserved for the man between the posts.

Carlos Kameni is a great keeper! It's so hard to believe that he is only 20 years old. Did you see Espanyol's last game against Barcelona. They drew 0-0, but that was because Carlos Kameni kept it that way. He made a spectaular save against Samuel Eto'o.. He is a young goalkeeper that is fun to watch, and being a goalkeeper myself, I am proud to watch him play the way he does.
