(Reuters) - Cameroon have left in-form West Ham United midfielder Alex Song out of their 23-man squad for next month's African Nations Cup finals in Equatorial Guinea which was named on Tuesday.

Song had asked the English Premier League club to be released for the tournament despite fears over the Ebola virus but is not in the plans of coach Volker Finke, who has ignored the 27-year-old since this year's World Cup in Brazil.
