Onana Breaks Silence On Cameroon World Cup Axe And Fires Sly Dig At Song. Andre Onana of Cameroon has spoken out about his World Cup dismissal and thrown a parting dig at manager Rigobert Song.

Onana played effectively in Cameroon’s 1-0 loss to Switzerland in their World Cup opener. However, the Inter Milan star was not included on the Serbia matchday roster. An argument regarding the goalkeeper’s playing style between Onana and Rigobert Song led to a yelling battle.

Song is thought to desire a goaltender who plays more traditionally between the pipes, but 26-year-old Onana is particularly skilled at playing out from the back and refuses to adapt his approach.

Onana was kicked off the team as a result of their disagreement, and he now has a flight home from Qatar. Now that the goaltender has left the Cameroon national team camp, he has issued the following statement on Twitter: “I want to express my affection for my country and the national team.”

“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.”

Onana continued: “I extend all my strength to my teammates because we demonstrated that we are capable of going very far in this competition.

“The values that I promote as a person and as a player are the ones that identify me, and that my family has given me since my childhood.

“Representing Cameroon has always been a privilege. The nation first and forever. Thank you!”

In his withdrawal, Song chose Devis Epassy, a player with only five caps, for yesterday’s 3-3 draw with Serbia, which maintained their World Cup aspirations.

For Cameroon to go to the round of 16, they must defeat Brazil, who have already qualified, in their last group game. It is a significant setback for Onana, who was given a year-long suspension for doping in 2021.

Although he consistently maintained his innocence, the shot-stopper spent nine months of that sentence while claiming to have taken one of his wife’s medicines by mistake while feeling under the weather.
