Patrick Mboma
Club:Parma
Position:Forward

A late develepor, Patrick Mboma caught the eye for his performances in the 2000 African Nations Cup.

Then aged 29, he scored four goals in the tournament, including one in the final against Nigeria which Cameroon won on a penalty shoot-out.

Voted African Player of the Year on the back of his success during that competition, Mboma has experience across Europe and the world.

He will feel at home in Japan having starred in the J-League for Gamba Osaka before spells with Cagliari and then Parma in Serie A.

Mboma scored six goals in six World Cup qualifying games and was on target three times as Cameroon retained their African Nations title this February.

That form made him a target for English Premiership side Sunderland, who took him from Parma on loan until the end of the season.

He found the net in only his second appearance for the Black Cats with a goal against Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
