Checking the Facts -- Bernard Tchoutang About Samuel Eto'o and Joseph Désiré Job

The facts were held, according to Bernard Tchoutang before the first game of Cameroon at the 2000 African Cup of Nations. Cameroon was to play against Ghana. What does the former winger say? 

"In Ghana, on the eve of the tournament, the team was made and we all knew that the attack consisted of Patrick Mboma and Joseph Désiré Job. Our ritual every morning before breakfast, we waited at the front desk for all to say hello. We were all there except Eto'o who used to come last, because he likes it. Eto'o arrives last and is supposed to say hello. He left one, two, three, four, five, six people on the floor without greeting them and headed for Job to shake his hand and look him in the eye.

Two hours later, we go on the bus and Job is not there. He was waited half an hour before seeing that he was twisting his stomach and making diarrhea. All astonished, Patrick Mboma, who is a white man, exclaims freely: "Samuel, what have you done to Job? ". Samuel to reply: "it's anything." Job did not play the competition, he lost 5 kg and Eto'o on his side finished top scorer of the CAN. I lived it ... ".

Verification of the facts: Cameroon is housed in group A of the CAN2000 organized jointly by Ghana and Nigeria. On 22 January 2000, Cameroon confronted Ghana.

The starting eleven of Cameroon is constituted as follows:
Boukar Alioum
Rigobert Song, Raymond Kalla, Pierre Wome, Geremi Njitap, Lauren Etame Mayer, Njanka Stone, Marc Vivien Foe, Salomon Olembe, Joseph Désiré Job, Patrick Mboma.

The substitutions will be as follows:

Pius Ndiefi for Joseph-Desire Job 64th min
Samuel Eto'o for Patrick Mboma 80th min
Lucien Mettomo for Salomon Olembe 81 'min

So it's FALSE to pretend that Job did not play the least minute of match in this competition. In the third group match against Togo, Job played all the second half as a substitute for Pius Ndieffi. He replaces Samuel Eto'o for the second half against Algeria in the quarter-finals and then in the final against Nigeria in the 72nd minute of play.
