Farewell to Mbami Modeste

Former Cameroonian footballer Mbami Modeste, Marseille Midfielder who retired from football in 2007 has died from a cardiac arrest.

According to several online sources, he won the Olympic football games with his country in 2000 in Sydney, also scoring the Golden goal against Brazil during the quarter-finals.

 He was also in the team when Cameroon reached the finals of the FIFA Confederations Cup in 2003 and was part of the 2004 African Cup of Nations team, who finished top of their group in the first round of competition, before failing to secure qualification for the semi-finals. M’bami was also in the Cameroonian national football team that disappointingly failed to qualify for the 2006 German World Cup as they finished second in their qualification group behind the Côte d’Ivoire.

The President of the International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) Gianni Infantino has expressed remorse over the passing away of Cameroon’s International footballer Modeste Mbami.
