Onana recalled as Cameroon fight for Cup of Nations survival



Cameroon have recalled Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana for a crucial Africa Cup of Nations clash against Burundi, with the final matchday of qualifying kicking off today

He was suspended and sent home after playing for the Indomitable Lions in their opening 2022 World Cup match against Switzerland, following a tactical disagreement with coach Rigobert Song.

But with Cameroon needing a win to be certain of qualifying for the 2023 Cup of Nations in the Ivory Coast, Song has convinced Onana to come out of self-imposed international retirement.

Title-holders Senegal are among 15 countries to qualify for the biennial African showpiece, and nine more places are up for grabs during the seven-day final round.
