Former Cameroon International Nguemo Dies In Car Crash Aged 38

Landry Nguemo, 38, a former Cameroon international, died in a car accident on Thursday, according to the Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot)’s Facebook page.

“Fecafoot has just learned the news of the death of the former Indomitable Lion, Landry Nguemo, as a result of a traffic accident,” the group wrote.

Between 2006 and 2014, the Yaounde-born midfielder appeared 42 times for Cameroon and scored three goals, helping the country finish second in the 2008 African Cup of Nations.

He spent the most of his club career in France, beginning at the age of 16 at AS Nancy-Lorraine’s academy.

He moved up to the first team, where he won the French League Cup in 2006 before joining Bordeaux.

He played with the Girondins from 2011 to 2014, winning the French Cup in 2013, before joining Saint-Etienne in 2014.

All three teams paid tribute on X with Nancy, where he returned as a coach after his playing days, expressing their “immense sadness”.

He also spent time in Turkey and Norway before returning to the Nancy Under 16s, “with the desire to pass on his knowledge and experience,” according to the club.
