Alex Song's calf injury prevented him from participating in Cameroon's final 2010 Fifa World Cup Group game against the Netherlands.

The Indomitable Lions' coach Paul Le Guen, confirmed the incident and revealed that the 23-year old defensive midfielder injured his right calf during a routine warm-up match ahead of their last group E match with the Netherlands, whom they lost to by a slender margin of one goal (2-1).

Le Guen said: "Ten minutes before kickoff, it was noted by the team doctors that he could not play, he already had a warning a day before the training."
