Man United’s Onana recalled to Cameroon squad


The Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana has been called back to the Cameroonian team for the upcoming AFCON qualifiers against Burundi.

Onana retired from the Cameroon national team after being sent home from the World Cup in Qatar for a disagreement with head coach Rigobert Song.

In a post on social media on X, Onana said that his time with the Cameroon national team was over.

“Players come and go, names are fleeting, but Cameroon comes before any person or player,” Onana wrote, without citing reasons for his decision. “Cameroon remains eternal and so does my love for the national team.”

Despite retiring from the national team, the 27-year-old has been named in Cameroon’s squad for matchday 6 of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers, with the tournament set to take place in Cote D’Ivoire next year

It is unclear whether Onana will be available for selection for the match against Burundi on September 1.2.
