Club career[edit]

Born in Yaoundé, Ndjock graduated from Lille's youth categories, and made his senior debuts with the club's B-side in the 2006–07 campaign, in Championnat de France amateur. He joined Turkish Süper Lig side Antalyaspor in August 2010,[1] and made his professional debut late in the month, starting in a 0–0 home draw against Trabzonspor.[2] He played 7 games in his debut season, and repeated the same amount in his second.in his third, he made 15 games.

In August 2013, Ndjock moved to Fethiyespor, freshly promoted to TFF First League, in a season-long loan deal.[3] He was an undisputed starer during the campaign, also playing the full 90 minutes in a 2-1 Turkish Cup success against country giants Fenerbahçe.

Ndjock signed with Minnesota United on 9 March 2015.[4]

During a friendly match on 21 July 2016 against AFC Bournemouth, Ndjock tried to quickly throw the ball to a team mate, but accidentally let the ball slip and fall into his own goal instead.[5] This was the second goal in the game that Bournemouth eventually won 4-0.[6] A similar incident occurred with Bjarte Flem in 1988.[7]

International career[edit]

Ndjock made his international debut with Cameroon on 2 June 2013, starting and playing the full 90 minutes in a 0–0 draw against Ukraine.[8] He was selected to Volker Finke's 28-man provisional squad for 2014 FIFA World Cup,[9] and also appeared in the final list for the tournament.[10]
