Indomitable Lions: 3 Players pullout of Nigeria friendly

The national team of Cameroon entered training this Monday in Vienna (Austria). The Indomitable Lions are preparing a double friendly against Nigeria. The two matches will take place on June 4 and 8 at the Wiener Neustadt stadium, located 50 KM from the center of the Austrian capital. In the Cameroonian squad, three players are missing. They are Jean Onana, Christian Bassogog and Olivier Mbaïzo.

The first one plays for the Belgian club Royal Excel Mouscron. The 21-year-old midfielder is injured and will therefore not honor his third call-up to the Cameroon national team. He will be replaced by his club teammate, Serge Tabekou. The striker Christian Bassogog could not be released by his club, Shanghai Shenhua (China). While the defender of Philadelphia Union (USA), Olivier Mbaïzo has not obtained a visa for Austria.

Note that the last time Cameroon and Nigeria faced each other dates back to the round of 16 of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2019. The Super Eagles had beaten the Indomitable Lions 3-2.
