Players to Keep an Eye on for Cameroon in FIFA World Cup
Five Cameroonian athletes who should be watched at Qatar 2022 are highlighted in this article.
Collins Fai’s explosive pace is the first thing that catches the attention of football observers. Undoubtedly one of Africa’s fastest full-backs in history, the dynamic defender plays for Al-Tai in Saudi Arabia. His lightning speed is a great asset for Les Lions Indomptables, whether he is defending or attacking.
A very capable and reliable right-back, the Bamenda native rigorously marks opponents and is capable of creating vital space when exploding down the flank. He is especially skilled at beating his man and connecting with his right midfielder in these situations.
Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting
Along with Vincent Aboubakar, Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting is a team captain who excels both on and off the field. The striker for Bayern Munich is an adaptable attacking option that can fit into any system or strategy. The Cameroonian is especially dangerous while playing on the outskirts of the box because of his speed and technical prowess.
With two Bundesliga championship medals from Bayern and participation in the 2020 UEFA Champions League final with Paris Saint-Germain, Choupo-Moting is also the most successful member of the national team. Rigobert Song in Qatar will probably find great value in his experience of some of the most prestigious competitions on the planet.
Karl Toko Ekambi
Karl Toko Ekambi, who is sometimes used as a support striker, is extremely expert at making room and adding depth. Additionally capable of playing on either wing, his link-up play on the left, in particular, with Ambroise Oyongo Bitolo, frequently results in the creation of scoring opportunities.
Vincent Aboubakar, the captain of Cameroon, will soon compete in his third World Cup in Qatar. His fans affectionately refer to him as “Abouchou.” The free scoring forward, a pillar of the national team and this year’s Cup of Nations top scorer, consistently threatens the opposition penalty area.
He recently passed the legendary Roger Milla in Cameroon’s all-time scoring charts to move into third place behind Samuel Eto’o (56) and Francois Omam-Biyik. The Al-Nassr star is an incredibly well-rounded striker with his heading ability, teamwork, and athleticism. With 37 international goals under his belt.
Andre Onana, a goalkeeper for Inter Milan, is the most recent in a long line of talented Cameroonian keepers, including Thomas Nkomo, Joseph Antoine Bell, and Carlos Kameni. The graduate of the Samuel Eto’o Foundation is strong in the air and has cat-like reflexes and anticipation. His imposing height allows him to effectively challenge opposing forwards.
Onana is a dependable shot-blocker who is also a skilled distributor, and he frequently uses goal kicks and throws to restart attacks.
