*Africa’s Most Memorable World Cup Moments*
2. Song unwanted World Cup Record
Do you know that Rigobert Song and Zinedine Zidane have one thing in common?
The two are the only players to have been sent off in two different World Cup tournaments. While Zidane has won one tournament and made the final of another, this dire disciplinary record is Song’s sole legacy on the world stage.
In 1994, he received a straight red in the latter stages of Cameroon’s 3-0 defeat against Brazil.
Four years later, he was dismissed for two bookable offences during the Indomitable Lions’ 1-1 draw with Chile.
Song played for the Cameroon national team between 1993 and 2010.
Later went on to coach the national team as a caretaker but currently the coach of the Cameroon U-23 national team.
