AFCON AFCON 2023: Senegal vs Cameroon confirmed line up

“I do what is good for my country” - André Onana

Cameroon head coach Rigobert Song has handed goalkeeper Andre Onana a start as they face Senegal in their second Africa Cup of Nations fixture at Stade Charles Konan Banny de in Yamoussoukro on Friday.

The Manchester United custodian missed the Indomitable Lions Group C opener against Guinea after he arrived late from his club duties.

Onana stayed behind in Manchester and played two matches for United – the 2-0 win against Wigan in the FA Cup and 2-2 Premier League draw against Tottenham – before jetting out for Ivory Coast.

Song has preferred the former Ajax and Inter Milan goalkeeper to start ahead of Fabrice Ondoa, who conceded in the 1-1 draw against the Syli National.

Meanwhile, led by Sadio Mane, the Lions of Teranga, who are the defending champion, will seek to confirm their strong entry into the competition, after winning the first match 3-0 against Gambia.

Senegal XI: Mendy, Koulibaly, Krepin Diatta, Diallo, Jakobs, Lamine, Pape Sarr, Pape Gueye, Ismaila Sarr, Habib Diallo, Sadio Mane.

Cameroon XI: Onana, Tolo, Tchato, Wooh, Castelletto, Neyou, Kemen, Zambo, Ngamaleu, Magri, N’koudou.
