Raymond Kalla

Club: Extramadura
Position: Defender

Experienced stopper who was in the squad for the 1994 and 1998 Finals but is still only 27.

Had an unhappy time in France '98 when he was sent off during a group match against Italy for a two-footed tackle on Luigi di Baggio.

Is much travelled, having played in South America before a switch to Spain where he plays in the second division for Extramadura.

A poweful centre-back, he has emerged as a target for Portsmouth, and could be on the move again this summer.
