Former Shelbourne and Sligo Rovers man Joey N'Do was in the RTE studio today, performing his punditry duties alongside Kenny Cunnigham, ahead of Cameroon's Group G clash against Serbia.
One of the highlights in the build-up to the match were the two former internationals sharing memories from the 1998 and 2002 World Cup's, with some brilliantly nostalgic footage of Joey N'Do togging out for Cameroon in 1998.
"I don't want to talk about that today," said N'Do when asked about his memories from 1998. "I am a little bit humble today."
"We were both parked on the bench for the World Cup in 2002," Cunningham said. "We could have spoke warming up maybe in the Ireland - Cameroon game, that's probably about it.
"The Cameroon game was a a special game, the first game of the competition. We hadn't been, it was the first time at a World Cup with that squad.
"The first game is always special, a lot of pressure and nervousness. That was a good Cameroon team, Eto'o of course was a young player in the team, and they went a goal ahead."

Cameroon's game with Serbia today will be seen as a must win for both teams, with the two sides losing their opening games of the World Cup.
Samuel Eto'o is involved with the squad, and has huge confidence in his squad, in stark contrast to the recent comments about Belgium from Kevin De Bruyne.
“We go to Qatar to win the World Cup," said Eto'o. "The other teams don’t have the same magic as us. We haven’t always shown our best face at World Cups.
“But now African teams are ready. Cameroon will win the final against Morocco.”
