The mystery remains as to why Andre Onana was suspended during the 2022 World Cup. The 26-year-old goalkeeper left international service on December 23 despite the Fécafoot citing a disciplinary matter. The Inter Milan goalkeeper is now shining at club level. And yet, Rigobert Song refuses to turn the page. The Cameroon coach is willing to grab the player with 34 caps.
On March 23, Song remarked at a press conference in Yaounde, “The door remains open to Andre Onana.” But a prospective comeback of the goalkeeper trained at the Samuel Eto’o Foundation is not without limitations. “Andre himself should know what he wants. In a group, there must be discipline. We won’t permit everyone to act as they please. André is one of the best goalkeepers of the moment, we won’t say otherwise, but I prefer the collective to individualism. He has to be part of the team. The national selection’s door is still open for me “the coach stated.
The press conference was organized in advance of the third day of the CAN 2023 qualifiers. At the Omnisports, Cameroon takes on Namibia this Friday.
