Christian Mougang Bassogog (born October 18, 1995) is a Cameroonian footballer who currently plays for Henan Jianye in the Chinese Super League.


Club Career

Rainbow FC
Bassogog began his career in his native Cameroon at second division side Rainbow FC, graduating from the youth system.


Wilmington Hammerheads
On April 29, 2015, Bassogog joined the United Soccer League club Wilmington Hammerheads.

Christian played 16 games and made two assists for the American club before he moved to the Danish club AaB.

On August 28, he signed a four-year contract with his new club.


AaB

On September 29, 2015, Bassogog got his debut for his new club AaB in the Danish Cup against the Aarhus-located team Lystrup IF. 

He came on the pitch in the second half with a half hour left.

On February 11 2016, in the Danish Superliga winter break, Bassogog was chosen to play the forward-position in a friendly match against FC Sioni Bolnisi from Georgia. 

He scored two goals in the match, and former head coach Lars S√łndergaard talked afterwards about, that Bassogog in the future could be used on the forward-position instead of the wing.

On February 29 2016, he got his debut in the Danish Superliga against FC Midtjylland. 

He came on the pitch with 10 minutes left.

Following a string of impressive performances for Cameroon at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, AaB sporting director Allan Gaarde commented that Bassogog was the subject of multiple queries regarding potential moves away from AaB in the 2017 January transfer window. 

However, no concrete offer materialized so Bassogog remained with his club.

International career

Christian Bassogog had a stellar Africa Cup of Nations 2017, scoring twice enroute to their victory, and was named as the Best Player at AFCON 2017.
