Cameroon’s Onana breaks silence following W’Cup dismissal


Cameroonian goalkeeper, Andre Onana, has broken his silence following his suspension from the team at the World Cup.

The PUNCH had reported that the first choice goalkeeper was dropped after a fallout with the country’s coach, Rigobert Song.

In a statement shared on his Twitter handle on Tuesday, Onana, gave a hint on what happened.

He said, “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 teammates because we demonstrated that we are capable of going very far in this competition…Representing Cameroon has always been a privilege. The Nation first and forever.”
