Andre Onana Reverses Retirement Decision Ahead of AFCON Qualifier

Cameroon’s talented goalkeeper, Andre Onana, has made a surprising comeback to international football just in time for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Burundi.

Last week, the 27-year-old Manchester United player found himself back in the squad for the upcoming qualifier, a decision confirmed by Cameroon’s head coach, Rigobert Song, as reported by Xinhua.

Onana had previously announced his retirement from international football in December due to a disagreement with Song over tactics.

In a statement shared on his social media platforms on Monday, Onana expressed his unwavering desire to represent his country: “My desire to represent my country has never wavered… I respond to the call of my nation with unwavering certainty, aware that my return is not only intended to honor my dream but also to respond to the expectation and support of Cameroonians, who deserve a national team determined to shine.”

Despite feeling unfairly treated, Onana emphasized his commitment to Cameroon, urging unity and teamwork for the good of the nation: “This is the time to unite, to work in harmony for our common good: Cameroon.”

Cameroon’s national team needs just a draw in their upcoming home match against Burundi to secure qualification for the AFCON.
