Geremi

Club: Real Madrid
Position: Midfielder

The World Cup is one of the few experiences to have eluded Geremi Njitap Fotso

At international level he has captained Cameroon to golden glory in the last Olympics and this year was one of three successful penalty takers en route to a 3-2 win in the African Nations Cup shootout against Senegal.

At club level he has enjoyed Champions League glory and represented Real Madrid in the World Club Championship.

Despite his early promise as a then 19-year-old, the talented youngster missed out on the last World Cup.

He looks set to be a central factor this time around with his defensive experience.
