With 26 points from 14 matches, Panthère Sportive du Ndé is the current leaders of the Cameroonian MTN Elite One 2012. In this post, I will take a closer look at this exciting team. Panthère Sportive is from Bangangté in the central-western part of the country.

Panthère Sportive has only conceded five goals in 14
matches. The first choice goalkeeper is Alain Tchoumte (born 08.06.1992), widely considered as one of the best in the league. Tchoumte is rather small for a goalkeeper (178 centimeters) but compensates with excellent reflexes, strength and natural authority. Tchoumte is fondly referred to as “Araignée”, a French word for spider. Collins Maifanya (born 20.01.1991), who was first choice goalkeeper at Unisport FC last season, is backup to Tchoumte. The talented Maifanya would most likely play regularly for most other clubs in the league.

Martial Kout Daleng (born 18.06.1986), formerly of Fovu Club and YOSA, is the regular left-back. Kout Daleng is an energetic, attacking-minded full-back. I believe Romain Armand Zanga Fouda (born 27.10.1988) is mostly found on right-back. The petit defender loves to join the attack and is quite skillful and exciting to watch. Gilbert Willy Tela Saah, most likely born in 1987 or 1988, signed from AS Lausanne de Yaoundé, is a great option at full-back.

Bruno Rodrigue Meuteing Tchakounte is a regular central defender. Meuteing Tcakounte, signed from YOSA before the current season, is a true fighter with surprisingly good ball control and great pace. Meuteing Tcakounte is mostly partnered by the key defender Gerard Pahane (born 17.10.1981). The strongman is strong in aerial duels and has scored three goals so far this season. The experienced Rodrigue Feukou Kengne (born 08.03.1980) and Serge Brown Ngayaou (born 06.10.1980) can both fill in as centre-backs.

Eugene Didier Talla Nembot (born 18.03.1986) is an intelligent midfielder with attacking qualities. Talla Nembot is often dictating the offensive play of the team, spreading passes to the attackers or wingers. Hamgue Armand Tchangue (born 28.11.1987), another new signing from Unisport FC, has been balancing the midfield with great success. Isaac Tatchoum (born 29.08.1982) has been a key player at defensive midfield the last couple of seasons. Panthère Sportive recently signed attacking midfielder Wilfrid Etondo, formerly of Diables Noirs Brazzaville from Republic of Congo.

Joseph Kajo Kameni (born 21.10.1988) is a quality winger, comfortable both on the left side and the right side of the midfield. Kameni, who starred for Unisport FC last season, is a skillful, hard-working player with tremendous speed.

Ngampiep Vigny Kologni (born 27.11.1983) is arguably the star player of the team and the current top scorer with five goals. Kologni is a burly left-winger or striker who loves to dribble.

Ernest Thierry Anang, most likely born in 1993 or 1994, is a powerful, tall striker with great speed. The skillful Edouard Nlo Eya, most likely born in 1990 or 1991, is another interesting newcomer, apparently signed from Olympic Club Kinshasa from the Democratic Republic of Congo. Eya has scored two goals in the three latest matches. Ronald Fongang Kana or Ngueyou Miguel Kamwa (born 01.11.1988) could also score goals up front.

List of scorers after 14 rounds (15 goals):

Ngampiep Vigny Kologni 5, Gerard Pahane 3, Edouard Nlo Eya 2, Ernest Thierry Anang 1, Ronald Fongang Kana 1, Joseph Kajo Kameni 1, Bruno Rodrigue Meuteing Tchakounte 1, Hamgue Armand Tchangue 1

I would also like to recomment the excellent new homepage of Panthère Sportive: This is actually one of the best homepages of West African teams I have ever seen. The picture is of Ngampiep Vigny Kologni and was found on the webpage.
