26_year_old Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana, has announced his retirement from the Cameroon National team.
The shot stopper made it official on Friday morning that he will now Continue to support the indomitable lions as a fan.
“It all started in Ngol Nkok, a small village where from a very young age, my family passed on to me the values that identify the Cameroonian people. I understood that love this country is eternal and that commitment is non_negotiable.”
“I remember how we watch the matches as a family. Only Cameroonians can understand what it means to us to see the indomitable lions play. That’s when I started dreaming of one day wearing the national team jersey. And now, after endless hours of training, endless trips and a lot of perseverance, I can proudly say that I have fulfilled my great dream,” Onana continued.
“But every story, however beautiful it may be, has its end. And my story with the Cameroon National team has come to an end. Players come and go, names are fleeting, but Cameroon comes before any person or player. Cameroon remains eternal and so does my love for the national team and for our people who have always supported us no matter how difficult the moment was.
“My feeling will never change. My Cameroonian heart will continue to beat and wherever I go I will always fight to the flag of Cameroon as high as possible.”
“I will Continue to support as a fan, just as the more than 27 million Cameroonians do at every match. I can only thank all those who trusted me and believed that I could add and contribute to this team”, Onana wrote.
This therefore puts an end to his six years career with the indomitable lions. Onana made his debut for the Cameroon National team in a friendly against France in May 2016, and went on to make 34 appearances for the Five times African champions.
Onana prematurely ending his international career, is partly attributed to a rift he had with the indomitable lions head coach Rigobert Song, during the world cup in Qatar, which led to him leaving the lions base in Qatar just after their first game against Switzerland.
