Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana recalled by Cameroon

Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana has been named in Cameroon’s squad for their final Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

The announcement comes nine months after he was suspended by his country’s federation midway through the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The 27-year-old Onana joined United from Inter Milan in July, taking over as first choice at Old Trafford from David De Gea, who left after 12 years at the club.

Onana announced his international retirement after his suspension was imposed for “disciplinary reasons”, thought to stem from a falling-out with Cameroon coach Rigobert Song.

In what would be a U-turn, the former Ajax player could line up against Burundi in a winner-takes-all Group C qualifier on September 12, ahead of next year’s African finals, to be hosted by Ivory Coast in January and February.

Namibia top the qualifying group by one point but have completed their matches after Group C was reduced to three teams following Kenya’s expulsion, with two to advance.

Cameroon hold second spot on goal difference from Burundi who they host in the decider.
