ALEX SONG is sick and tired of coming out second best against former teammate Emmanuel Adebayor and has vowed to do something about it when Cameroon face Togo tomorrow. It is the first time the pair will meet since the stormy Premier League clash between Manchester City and Arsenal last month. The duo were inseparable during their time together in London, but last month Song admitted their friendship had cooled after Adebayor took leave of his senses at Eastlands, when he committed a number of indiscretions, including an alleged slap on Song. The Arsenal midfielder could have the last laugh in Yaounde tomorrow if the Indomitable Lions secure the win that would guarantee their place at the World Cup. When Cameroon lost to Togo in March, Adebayor was killing me in training. I was down for four weeks. I have a message for him that it will be different this time -- he wont have any chance. If we stop Adebayor we stop Togo. 44 Friday, 9 October 2009 London Lite LITESPORT ARSENAL P7 W5 D0 L2 Pts15 ARMAND TRAORE has talked to Arsene Wenger over his lack of first team chances.

I am the captain of the biggest country in the world, does that make me the biggest captain in the world? he joked. I am very proud of the job I have been given and I know I have an enormous respon- sibility to the people who give me and the team their support. Can you imagine that tomorrow if we win and I score the winning goal, one hundred million people will have the exact same feeling for one second in their lives -- that is pressure.
