- Cameroon’s captain Vincent Aboubakar may see his AFCON journey end prematurely in Cote D’Ivoire after sustaining an injury during Friday’s training session
- The 2021 highest goal scorer is in his fourth AFCON, and as one of the oldest in the squad, is expected to lead Cameroon to a sixth glory
- The last time the 31-year-old missed the Africa cup of nations, Cameroon was eliminated in the round of 16, in Egypt
Cameroon’s ace striker Vincent Aboubakar is in doubt for the Africa Cup of Nations following an injury he sustained in Friday’s training session.
The captain is reported to have ended Friday’s session midway following a rough tackle which may have torn his ligament.
Several media outlets have been reporting on his injury, with a handful hinting at forfeiture for this 2021 Golden Boot winner.
However, CRTV sports journalist Katche Rene reports that an MRI scan will be conducted on the player this morning to ascertain the exact situation
Forfeiture is still far from the equation as officials are awaiting results before drawing any conclusions.
“ABOU WILL UNDERGO MRI THIS MORNING! NOTHING IS CLEAR YET!” Rene Katche wrote on Facebook.
An injured Aboubakar is the last thing Cameroonians hope to hear, let alone him not being available for the competition.
Aboubakar is one of the four experienced attackers on Cameroon’s roster. The 31-year old who single-handedly scored ten goals last edition to see Cameroon pick up bronze is expected to carry the Lions to what is believed to be Cameroon’s sixth triumph in the land of the elephants.
If it all boils down to his unavailability, Rigobert Song still has the opportunity to replace him, three days before Cameroon’s opening match against Guinea Monday.
