Gaetan Bong to captain Cameroon against Brazil

Gaetan Bong will captain the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon tonight in their international friendly against Brazil at the Milton Keynes stadium.

Head coach Clarence Seedorf continues to keep to his tradition of rotating the armband as the Brighton defender lead the side out today to challenge the Seleçao in their final game of the year.

Clarence Seedorf will be designing a fifth captain tonight since taking over and the decision is becoming unpopular within a section of the media and the fans who want to see him name a permanent captain.

However, the Dutch coach has made it clear that he will appoint a captain before the Africa Cup of Nations next year at home.

The Lions go into tonight’s game on the back of a defeat against Morocco in Casablanca on Friday and will want to put up a strong show against a Brazillian side that beat them 4-1 when they last met at the group stage of the 2014 World Cup.
