Zambo Anguissa, the main danger of Napoli
In the wake of his excellent start to the season, Franck-Zambo Anguissa signed a new masterclass this Saturday in Serie A. Absent from the Cameroonian selection during the last meeting, his double put Napoli on orbit, winner of Torino and leader of the championship.
Napoli is at the top of Serie A (20 pts). After eight games, Luciano Spalletti's men have 6 wins, 2 draws and therefore zero losses. On Saturday, October 1 at the stadio Diego Maradona, they quickly folded Torino (3-1). And yet, they were promised a complicated season, after the departures this summer of several executives of the team: the captain Kalidou Koulibaly, the midfielder Fabian Ruiz, Lorenzo Insigne and Dries Mertens. But other players, such as Franck Zambo Anguissa, have taken up the torch.
Recruited permanently this summer after a season on loan at the club, the Cameroonian has taken the gallon (3 goals, 3 assists in 10 games). "Luciano Spalletti has always shown great confidence in me and encourages me every day. I feel more confident and I push forward more often" he said about his coach a few days ago.
It was he who showed his teammates the way to victory against Torino very early with a double (6th and 11th). But Anguissa is not just the goals, the defensive midfielder balances the team. The native of Douala, trained at Coton Sport FC, has a large volume of play that allows him to constantly scratch the leather in his opponents. Thanks to his technique and his calmness, he is also valuable in the exit of the ball. It is the main danger of the Neapolitans.
The non-selection of Zambo Anguissa causes confusion in Cameroon
A danger that has undoubtedly missed in Cameroon during the last meeting. Without him, the Indomitable Lions have produced two poor games in preparation for the 2022 World Cup. They lost against South Korea (0-2) and Uzbekistan (0-1). His absence has also made a lot of talk in the country of the five-time African champions. "Zambo who plays every three days, do I still need to see him? He will be useful in November. We go to a competition and not for one game. We know them all. You have to give the others a chance. We try the others to find a balance. There are no worries. The staff thought it was a good solution," Song said after the publication of his list.
These explanations did not convince his former teammate Mohamadou Idrissou: "We give them rest why? Because they played the Champions League? So those who played the two games did not play in their club? Neymar, Mbappé, Messi, the cadors of soccer play every game. Cameroon has a new strategy: resting the best, losing to react," said the former striker of the Indomitable Lions. One thing is sure, Song will need him in Qatar.
