Axel Ngando (born 13 July 1993) is a French footballer of Cameroonian descent who plays as a midfielder for French club SC Bastia and the France national under-21 football team.

Club career[edit]

Ngando started his career playing for the "B" team of Stade Rennais F.C. who played in the Championnat de France amateur.[1] He scored his first goal for the "B" team on 21 May 2011 against Vendée Poiré sur Vie Football in which he scored in the 47th minute to help Stade Rennais "B" to a 3–2 victory.[2] He then scored his second goal for the "B" team on 4 November 2012 against FC La Chapelle-des-Marais in which he scored in the 82nd minute to provide Stade Rennais "B" a 2–0 victory.[3]

Ngando then, after several impressive matches for the "B" team, made his debut for the first-team in a Ligue 1 game on 2 February 2013 against Lorient, in which he came on as a 90th-minute substitute for Romain Alessandrini and scored a goal just one minute into his debut in the 91st minute to equalize for Stade Rennais and finish the match at a score of 2–2.[4] He is the nephew of former Cameroon international Patrick Mboma and is eligible to represent either Cameroon or France at senior level.
