Pierre Nlend Womé (born 26 March 1979 in Douala) is a Cameroonian football defender who plays for Köln in the 2008–09 season.[1]

He is a versatile and skillful left wing-back.

Career

On 8 October 2005, Wome missed a 95th minute penalty during Cameroon's final World Cup qualifier against Egypt that would have sent the Indomitable Lions to the 2006 FIFA World Cup; unfortunately for Wome he cannoned the shot off the outside of the post and the Ivory Coast qualified at their expense.

During a press conference several days afterward, Wome said about the penalty: “No one wanted to take that penalty. No one. Neither Samuel Eto'o nor our captain Rigobert Song, because they knew what could have happened if they missed. I have always had the courage and I went to the spot.” He also claimed that some Cameroon fans wanted to kill him.

On 19 March 2007, Wome announced his retirement from international football.[2]

Wome is one of six players to have played in the top division in Italy, Spain, England and Germany (the others are Jon Dahl Tomasson, Abel Xavier, Gheorghe Popescu, Florin Raducioiu and Maniche). During his time in England at Fulham, Wome scored once in the league, a 3-0 win over West Brom in February 2003.[3]
