  •  Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui marked a heroic comeback to the Indomitable Lions, scoring a goal and providing an assist in Cameroon’s 4-1 rout of Cape Verde
  • His aerial dominance and leadership were a welcome sight after his puzzling exclusion from major tournaments, including the World Cup for which he helped qualify
  • Ngadeu-Ngadjui’s performance reasserts his vital presence in the national team, embodying the spirit of resilience and excellence

Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui’s return to the Indomitable Lions was nothing short of spectacular, as he played a pivotal role in Cameroon’s dominant 4-1 win against Cape Verde.

After a lengthy absence of 801 days since March 29, 2022, Ngadeu-Ngadjui was not only reinstated into the national team but also secured a starting position.

At 33 years old, he demonstrated his enduring class by scoring the opening goal with a remarkable header, courtesy of an assist from Moumi Ngamaleu at the 13th minute.

His influence continued into the second half when, at the 54th minute, he provided the assist for Nouhou Tolo’s goal, sealing the victory for Cameroon.

Ngadeu-Ngadjui’s substitution in the 85th minute by Harold Moukoudi marked the end of a memorable performance that saw him score his fifth goal in his 54th appearance for the national team.

His leadership qualities have been a beacon for the squad, a testament to his contributions since the triumphant 2017 AFCON campaign.

Despite not being known for flamboyant defense, his unmatched aerial prowess was on full display, a skill that the Lions’ squad had sorely missed. His performance was a reminder of his significant contributions to the team, including helping Cameroon qualify for the World Cup.

However, history remembers he was not called up to participate in the tournament. Additionally, his absence from the squad since then, with no explanation provided for his non-selection, only added to the intrigue surrounding one of Cameroon’s stalwart defenders.

Ngadeu-Ngadjui’s journey has been marked by resilience and excellence, and his latest display reaffirms his status as an indispensable asset to the Indomitable Lions.
