2022 WCQ: Onana returns to Cameroon squad for Malawi, Ivory Coast games

World Cup 2022 WCQ: Onana returns to Cameroon squad for Malawi, Ivory Coast games
OCT 27, 2021 LISTEN

António Conceição da Silva Oliveira has announced a 32-man Cameroon squad for their last two 2022 World Cup qualifying group games next month.

Among the notable returnees is Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana, who has been banned for 9 months by Uefa for testing positive for a prohibited substance in October 2020.

The 25-year-old resumed group training with the Ajax Reserves in September as the ban will end on November 4, seven days before the Indomitable Lions take on Malawi.

Forward Tawamba Kana and left-back Oyongo Bitolo Ambroise have also been included in Conceição’s provisional list.

Regular centre-back Harold Moukoudi misses out on the list after going off injured when his club Saint Etienne played a 2-2 draw against Angers this past weekend.

Cameroon will take on Malawi on 11 November in Johannesburg, before hosting Ivory Coast at the Japoma Stadium three days later.

Ivory Coast leads the African qualifiers Group D with 10 points, while Cameroon is second with 9.

Those two games are must-win games for Cameroon if they are to make it to the playoffs for one of the five African tickets to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
