Cameroon’s head coach Rigobert Song Bahanag, will have to do without Karl Brilliant Toko Ekambi when they take on Namibia during the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier clashes at home and away this month.
The 30-year-old forward has picked up a hamstring injury as confirmed by the medical staff of the National team this Tuesday, as they revealed that player out for about ten days.
The Rennes striker picked up the injury during Rennes’ 2-0 win over Paris Saint Germain in Match day 19 of the Ligue 1, a game in which he scored the first goal.
Besides Ekambi, two other strikers, Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting, will miss the encounter, just like full-back Fai Collins.
Aboubakar is suspended for the first game while Choupo will miss both matches due to a back problem picked up on duty for Bayern.
However, home-based duo Emmanuel Mahop opf Canon Yaounde and Etta Bawak of PWD of Bamenda, were invited on Monday, March 20, to replace Choupo and Fai respectively.
The Indomitable Lions squad as at now, has just Bryan Mbeumo, Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu, Ignatius Ganago, Jerome Ngom Mbekeli and Emmanuel Mahop at the attack compartment.
Cameroon will host Namibia on March 24 at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde and then travel to face the latter on March 28 in the reversed fixture.
