Ngog, a £1.5m signing from Paris Saint Germain, is undoubtedly ahead of his anticipated development at Liverpool and his promise has led to a possible conflict at international level, with Cameroon offering the striker a chance to play alongside Samuel Eto'o at next summer's World Cup.
The France under-21 international admitted: "My father is from Cameroon. They have qualified for South Africa and have a very strong team. I like playing for France and have enjoyed every game with the under-21s. I have played for France from a very young level and feel a strong allegiance towards them.
"But like a lot of French players, I have parents from Africa and I cannot forget that one half of my family is from Cameroon."
