Rigobert Song
Club:West Ham
Position:Defender

On loan this season in Germany with FC Cologne, Rigobert Song is still on the books of Premiership outfit West Ham.

This year will be his third World Cup tournament and he will be keen to avoid an unwanted hat-trick.

Song is the only man to have been sent off in two separate World Cup competitions, in 1994 and 1998.

Those red cards are evidence of his commitment to the cause, which extends as far as a willingness to walk the disciplinary tightrope.

Song has played in Serie A with Salertnitana and was with Liverpool before moving to Upton Park.

In 2000, he captained Cameroon to the African Nations Cup triumph and scored the decisive spot-kick in the penalty shootout in the final against Nigeria.

However, he was the most relieved man when the Indomitable Lions retained their trophy this year. This time he missed from the spot after the final with Senegal also went to penalties.
