Cameroon full "of regrets" as we eagerly await Alex Song

Alexandre Song's World Cup party is over as Nicklas Bendtner scores for Denmark.

Song had a good game. The Arsenal defender did his best, and occasionally ventured into Danish territory in a bid to teach his wasteful counterparts Emana and Idrissou, how to find the back of the net.

While, Nicklas Bendtner for the umpteenth time gave hope to his country, after a defensive error allowed him overtake two Cameroon defenders to tap-in from close range, restoring parity in the process after 3-times Champions League winner Samuel Eto'o, took advantage of an equally frail Denmark defense to shoot past Stoke City's Sorensen for the opener.

Bendtner consoled Song after the match. He hugged him closely and might have told him: "Relax Song! Get over it, you are only 22."

At least Bendtner, would have some bragging rights at the Emirates when they resume. Maybe for setting up an exciting comeback for the Danes.

A majority of the Cameroon players, reportedly refused to exchange pleasantries with the Media after their crushing defeat (1-2) to Denmark, which effectively sends them reeling from the competition.

The Indomitables Lion' captain Samuel Eto'o, who failed to replicate his club form for his country revealed the team's frustration and believes they should have taken their chances.

The Inter Milan striker referred to their first round exit, as the biggest dissapointment of his illustrious career: "We had our opportunity in this competition.

"But we were very unlucky. Tonight (yesterday), we created a few good chances, we would have killed the game in the first half. Now we must finish with dignity for the people of Cameroon."

"I bet my whole season on this World Cup. I wanted to have a good competition. I really hoped to go far. But the adventure ends with much regrets. I gave everything I had in my legs and in my heart."
