Njie Clinton: Indomitable Lions’ New Magic Boy
Clinton Mua Njie, still in his early 20s, is a youngster who now represents the next generation of footballers. In just two caps for the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, Njie already has three goals to his credit – no wonder he has been quickly tagged as the “new magic boy.”
Until last Saturday September 6, 21-year-old Clinton Njie was still little known in Cameroon. But that has quickly changed as he is now referred to as the revelation of the ‘new look’ Indomitable Lions.
His tact and wit in the game of football are just incredible. “Njie, where were you all these while?” wondered a sports commentator when the Lyon striker netted Cameroon’s fourth goal against the elephants of Ivory Coast Wednesday.
Of course, Njie was somewhere. The young talented goal scorer who is also a product from Brasseries Football Academy in Douala signed a 3-year-contract with French League 1 team Olympique Lyonnais in Gerland last year. He is now one of the most promising players Cameroon can count on.
