Bassong called up by Cameroon

YAOUNDE - Cameroon have named Newcastle United centre-back Sebastien Bassong in their squad for the World Cup qualifier against Morocco on June 7, the national football federation said on Monday. Paris-born Bassong, 22, is a former French Under-21 international but because he did not play a competitive match for the French juniors he is eligible for his parents' home country Cameroon.
