Cameroon Goalkeeper, Onana Breaks Silence After Being Axed From Squad

 

Cameroon goalkeeper breaks silence After being dropped

Cameroon goalkeeper, Andre Onana, has broken his silence after being withdrawn from the national team following a shouting match with coach, Rigobert Song.

Naija News recalls that the Inter Milan goalkeeper was dropped a few hours before their tie against Serbia.

However, in recent reports, the national team head coach revealed to reporters that the axing of the goalkeeper was “needed” for his team’s progress.

Meanwhile, Cameroon’s backup goalie, who plays in Saudi Arabia’s Pro League, Devis Epassy, conceded three goals in their draw against Serbia.

Following the 3-3 draw, Onana was clearly believed to be missed in the squad for their Group G second-round match.

As the Indomitable Lions now face the tough test of defeating Brazil in their last group match to have any hope of moving on to the second round, reports reveal that Onana will be watching the rest of the game at his home.

According to the Daily Mail, the troubled Inter Milan goalie said: “I want to express my affection for my country and the national team. Yesterday I was not allowed to be on the ground to help Cameroon, as I always do, to achieve the team’s goals. I always behaved in a way to lead the team to success in a good manner.

“I have put all my efforts and energy into finding solutions to a situation that a footballer often experiences, but there has been no will on the other side. Some moments are difficult to assimilate. However, I always respect and support the decisions of the people in charge of pursuing the success of our team and country.

“I extend all my strength to my team-mates because we demonstrated that we are capable of going very far in this competition. The values that I promote as a person and as a player are the ones that identify me, and that my family has given me since childhood.

“Representing Cameroon has always been a privilege. The nation first and forever. Thank you!”
