Gabon

3 to watch for Gabon

 DANIEL COUSIN

                                                     

 

 

 

Veteran striker Cousin will be Gabon’s main striker and goal threat during the African Cup of Nations. Tall and athletic he can physically impose himself upon defenders and has a good level of pace.

Although he cannot be considered as prolific he has impressed in the last couple of years. After spending the start of his career in the lower divisions of the French leagues subsequent moves to RC Lens and then Glasgow Rangers propelled him to the English Premiership and Hull City.

Despite scoring important goals against Arsenal and Manchester United his recent move has been largely disappointing and he shall probably move on after the tournament with Queens Park Rangers being favourites to sign.

Cousin made his debut for Gabon on in a 3–1 defeat to South Africa and participated in all three of Gabon’s 2000 African Cup of Nations group matches. Since 2006 he was been captain of the national team. He has scored seven goals in 19 games.

 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

                                                     

Youngster Aubameyang burst onto the international scene with a scintillating display against Morocco last year capping it with his first international goal.

Having already joined the AC Milan youth team in 2007 he was then loaned out French clubs Dijon and Lille to build up some first team experience.

Blessed with great skill and pace much is expected of the youngster and his partnership with Cousin will be vital for Gabon’s hopes of progression.

Pierre comes from a family of footballers being the son of former Gabonese international Pierre Snr. Elder brothers Catilina and Willy, also played for AC Milan youth teams.

 

 

Roguy Meye

                                                                 

Roguy Meye is a young talented player and extremely important to the Gabon national team. The 23-year-old has been a regular for the Azingo Nationale throughout the qualifiers and at club level he plays for Ankaragücü on loan from Ankaraspor both of the Turkish Super League. Last year he scored 17 times in 35 matches in the Turkish first division.

An accomplished finisher and playmaker he can play in midfield and up-front with his excellent movement and skill confusing the opposing defenders.


The youngster scored his first international goal in a 2-1 victory over northern African side Morocco and to date has scored 3 international goals in 20 matches.

    Well the section on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is almost word for word the same as his Wikipedia entry.

    TELL ME ..how is this word for word???

    I appreciate that it’s difficult to find information on an obscure player, but it does seem to me that you’ve just copied the Wikipedia information in and then tweaked the words, otherwise you wouldn’t have the problem with the words in bold (which are all the ones that are links on Wikipedia) and the background going blue, which is what happens if you copy and paste from Wikipedia.

    I know it’s not word for word, but a lot of it is extremely similar:

    Wikipedia – “Cousin made his debut for Gabon on 23 January 2000 in a 3–1 defeat to South Africa. He participated in all three of the 2000 African Cup of Nations group matches for Gabon. On 2 September 2006 he was made captain of the national team”

    You – “Cousin made his debut for Gabon on in a 3–1 defeat to South Africa and participated in all three of Gabon’s 2000 African Cup of Nations group matches. Since 2006 he was been captain of the national team.”

    If that’s the case, it’s not really your writing, which isn’t fair on the other participants in the FJC. I don’t want you to be removed from the challenge, as otherwise your writing is good, I just hope you won’t feel the need to cut corners with future tasks.

    cool man..i see your point of view..but i am not directly copying…i do copy and paste some of the names as they are crazy to spell out sometimes and then i forget to change the type face which leads to problems later.

    also somtimes you can only change the info so much without changing the meaning etc of the article

    Yeah some of the writing is lazy but i am depending entirely on the net as there are no english newspapers/magazines and poor media coverage in san luis and mexico of the ANC and nothing on Gabon.

    cheers
