Carlos Kameni

Date of birth18 December 1984
Place of birthDouala
NationalityCameroonian
Weight78 kg
Height1.84 m
PositionGoalkeeper

As a young keeper - he was 18 in December 2002 - he was already a Cameroon sporting legend as he produced a superb performance against Spain in the Final of the 2000 Sydney Olympics football tournament to become the youngest-ever player to win a gold medal.

Carlos started his senior career in France with Le Havre but joined Serie A giants Juventus after impressing coach Marcello Lippi in a two-week trial during October 2002.

Although he had to bide his time behind Gianluigi Buffon in Turin and Alioum Boukar for Cameroon, he was an outstanding prospect.

Mature beyond his years, Carlos is an imposing figure who is confident when under pressure.
