Ajax Amsterdam goalkeeper Andre Onana has made it into coach Clarence Seedorf’s 2019 Afcon 23 man squad for defending champions Cameroon.
Onana was very key in Ajax’s title winning side and also their historical run in the UEFA Champions League. Also making the cut in the squad is Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting of PSG, France, Karl Toko Ekambi of Villareal, Spain and Fulham midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.
However, there is no room for the 2017 Afcon hero Vicent Aboubakar who has been cut from the squad due to his lack of fitness.
Seedorf’s plan seems to boarder on physical fitness and having beaten Zambia 2-1 in a friendly on Sunday in Madrid, he is now looking to retain the Afcon trophy.
The Indomitable Lions are in Group F of the 2019 Nations Cup and first play Guinea Bissau on 25 June in Ismailia before facing Ghana four days later and end on 2 July against Benin.
