Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana has been recalled to the Cameroon national team.

The 27-year-old had announced his retirement from international football last December after a disagreement with Cameroon’s head coach Rigobert Song.

Onana started for Cameroon in their opening defeat to Switzerland, his 34th international appearance, but was dropped for the subsequent draw with Serbia after a disagreement with his manager’s tactics.

The goalkeeper was sent home before his nation’s final group game, which saw them defeat Brazil but fail to qualify for the knockout stages of the tournament.

However, Onana has made a shock return just eight months later after being welcomed back into the team by Song.

The Manchester United sho-stopper has been named in the Indomitable Lions’ 24-man squad for their upcoming TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Burundi on 12th September.

Onana’s possible return to international duty could be a blow to United ahead of next year’s rescheduled African Cup of Nations tournament in Ivory Coast.

If Cameroon qualify for the competition, then Onana could miss a number of united matches early next year, with the tournament running from January 13 to February 11.
