It is a dream come true because I always wanted to play soccer at the high level since I was little.

Yea of course I was because it is the first step into my career and will need to prove myself.
Q. With all the MLS SuperDraft happenings, will you still keep a focused eye on Cameroon at 2010 African Cup of Nations?
Yea of course because it is my country and I hope that we win it.
Q. Out of Gabon, Zambia, and Tunisia who will be toughest test in the group stage?
I think it will be Tunisia because they have a good team.
Q. When you stepped up for the first PK in the national championship, what was running through your mind or was it clear?
Nothing really because I'm used to taking a pk and I'm always confident about it. That's why I always take the first one.
