Man United’s Onana recalled to Cameroon squad
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.”
