Manchester United’s goalkeeper Andre Onana has been dropped to the bench ahead of a must win fixture in AFCON 2023 for Cameroon against Gambia.
The official starting lineup for the fixture confirmed that Andre Onana will be replaced by his cousin Fabrice Ondoa in the Gambia vs Cameroon fixture which will be played today, Tuesday, January 23, 2024 at 6 pm WAT.
The Man United’s number one missed the first match due to arriving late after playing for Manchester United, then started the second game, which they lost 3-1 to Senegal.
Fabrica Ondoa, who played in the 1-1 draw against Guinea, will start again. Cameroon needs a win against The Gambia and relies on Senegal beating Guinea to have a shot at automatic qualification for the round of 16, currently being third in their group.
