Former Indomitable Lions of Cameroon player, Massing Benjamin found dead

Former Cameroon's National Football team player, Massing Benjamin is dead.
The 55-year-old former Indomitable Lion central defender was found dead this
morning at his home in Edea, Cameroon.
Massing, who played professionally for, among others, France’s US Créteil-
Lusitanos (1987–91), was picked up for Cameroon’s squad for the 1990 FIFA
World Cup, where he was famously sent off in the opening game for a
spectacular foul on Argentina’s Claudio Caniggia (in a 1–0 shock win).
Massing also appeared in the quarterfinal loss against England (2–3) where he
was booked, conceding a penalty for committing a foul on Gary Lineker.
Previously, in the match against Argentina, he received another caution, after
bringing down Diego Maradona.
Internationally Massing, who gained 21 international caps in four and a half
years, also took part in three Africa Cup of Nations, namely the 1992 edition
while playing for Olympic Mvolyé. He has led a modest private life sinc
