Seb's dream continues

Sebastien Bassong admits the past year could hardly have gone any better for him, culminating with inclusion in Cameroon's World Cup squad.

The defender was included in the Indomitable Lions' final 23, alongside Spurs team-mate Benoit Assou-Ekotto, having impressed as part of the provisional 30-man squad.

The call-up comes after a season in which he has played a key role in our qualification for next season's Champions League, playing 38 games in all competitions and scoring once in our opening day victory over Liverpool.

But it doesn't ends there, and Seb says: "It's been a great year for me and it carries on with the World Cup.

"It's been a dream and it keeps going. We'll see what happens. I'll try to enjoy it and try to do my best, as always."

On the tournament itself, the 23-year-old continues: "We have Japan, Denmark and Holland, a tough group.

"I think we can get through the group but we'll have to be focused, professional and work hard together.

"The game against Holland will maybe be the hardest but you never know what can happen in football."

Cameroon have qualified for more World Cup Finals then any other African nation, and who can forget their run to the Italia 90 quarter-finals with the likes of Roger Milla in the ranks?

It's something Seb hopes the class of 2010 can emulate, adding: "We have a great squad, great players and I believe in us. People always remember Cameroon in the World Cup and we'll try to carry that on."
