Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) has confirmed that first choice goalkeeper Andre Onana has been suspended from the Indomitable Lions squad due to disciplinary issue.
Onana played the full 90 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to Switzerland and had been expected to feature in Monday’s clash with Serbia, only for numerous reports to claim that the Inter stopper had been banished from the squad.
Some reports stated that Onana had been dropped due to clash of opinion on tactics with head coach Rigobert Song.
FECAFOOT has now confirmed in a statement that Onana has been temporarily suspended.
“The Cameroon Football Federation hereby informs the public that following Mr. Rigobert Song Bahanag’s decision, Head Coach of the Indomitable Lions, the player Andre Onana has been temporarily suspended from the group for disciplinary reasons.
“The Cameroon Football Federation reiterates its full support to the Head Coach and his entire staff as they implement the Federation’s policy aimed at preserving discipline, solidarity, complementarity and cohesion within the national team.
“FECAFOOT further reaffirms its commitment to create a peaceful atmosphere for the team and to provide them with adequate facilities for an outstanding performance.”
The Indomitable Lions played out a thrilling 3-3 draw against Serbia, coming from 3-1 down.
They will have to beat Brazil in their final group game to stand a chance of qualifying for the round of 16.
