Flavien Enzo Boyomo says Friday, 10 March 2023 is a unique day in his life and career as the Cameroon Football Federation released coach Rigobert Song’s Cameroon squad to challenge Namibia with his name included.
The Albacete Balompie defended was drafted into the Indomitable Lions set-up for the first time on Friday, and will be part of Cameroon’s squad for the Match Day three and four Africa Cup of Nations qualifier games against The Brave Warriors.
“It’s a special day for me. I have the chance to represent a country very special to me and my family. Happy to represent Cameroon,” Boyomo wrote on Instagram.
Boyomo, 21, has worked his way up the football ladder, turning out in non-league with Toulouse and Black Burn 18s before moving to Albacete Balompie.
The man who made over 50 appearances with Black Burn youth teams but failed to break into the senior team has become a major player at his Spanish Club, featured in 28 of their 30 games this season in the second tier championship.
Song who played as a defender during his days as a footballer definitely recognizes a good defender when he sees one and has placed his trust in French-borm Boyomo.
Eight defenders have been retained, including another newcomer Malcom Bokele Mputu of Girondin de Bordeaux.
Cameroon confronts Namibia on March 24 in Yaounde before flying to South Africa for the Match Day four commitment at the Dobsonville stadium in Pretoria.
The Indomitable Lions currently top the group that has Burundi and Kenya as other contenders though the latter is just returning from a FIFA ban.
