Arsenal FC player and Cameroon international midfielder, Alexandra Song was attacked by young football fans along a commercial avenue in the country’s capital, Yaounde on Tuesday.
The incident occurred while Song was returning from a training session.
According to an eyewitness the angry fans attacked the 24-year-old, blaming him for Cameroon’s loss against Libya in a match that took place in Tunisia. The Sunday match that saw Libya take a 2-1 victory was a qualifying match for the 2014 World Cup that will be taking place in Brazil.
Cameroon were toppled from the top spot of Group I after losing their second game to Libya, seeing them placed third with three points behind Libya.
The attack has been condemned by Roger Milla’s Citizens Committee for the Revamping of Cameroonian Football. The association also called on the government to act immediately and arrest all those involved.
