Andre Onana retires from Cameroon national team at 26

Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana has decided to retire from international football at the age of 26 only. The player left the Cameroon World Cup camp early, after not being played in the second game of the tournament and falling out with manager Rigobert Song. 

His aggressive style of play was one of the main reasons behind the falling out with the manager. The Cameroon FA president, Samuel Eto’o, tried to intervene but was unable to find a resolution between the two parties.

“But every story, however beautiful it may be, has its end. And my story with the Cameroonian team has come to an end. ​The players come and go, and the names are fleeting, but Cameroon is before any person or player. Cameroon continues to be eternal and also my love for the national team and for our people, who have always supported us no matter how difficult the moment.

My feelings will never change. My Cameroonian heart will continue to beat and wherever I go I will always fight to raise the Cameroonian flag as high as possible,” the official statement provided by Andre Onana read.

The goalkeeper earned 34 caps for his country during his brief international career and was able to finish third in the African Cup of Nations last year. And considering his ability to play at such a high level, his absence will surely be a huge blow for the team going forward.
