Cameroon/Lions In The Diaspora:Ekambi On Target, Fai In New Surroundings…

Toko Ekambi

In the aftermath of their third-place finish at the just ended 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, most Indomitable Lions of the expedition have fully resumed action to get themselves fit ahead of next month’s 2022 FIFA World Cup Play Offs against Algeria.

Some who were equally not part of the journey have been busy putting in the shift i9n order to get the call for next month’s decider.

Fai Collins: After landing in Belgium earlier in the week, the defender said his goodbyes to his now former team mates and staff of Standard Liege before penning an emotional letter to fans of the club. The defender wasted no time as he packed his bags off to Saudi Arabia where he immediately started training with his new club Al Tai. He was a second half substitute as they beat Al Batin three goals to one.

Vincent Aboubakar: Top scorer at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, the striker was given a hero’s welcome back to the club Al Nasr in midweek but watched helplessly as they lost last weekend three nil to leaders Al Ittihad. Aboubakar came on in the second half with his side two goals down but they were soon reduced to a man down when his team mate Talisca was shown a red card at the 59 minute before the leaders fired in the third goal.

Leandre Tawamba: The big centre forward was on target for his Saudi Arabian side Al Taawoun as they recorded a three nil victory away at Al Raed; his thirteenth goal of the season, putting him just one short of the top scorer. Tawamba who was not part of the 2021 AFCON squad will be hoping for a call up for next month’s game. His last appearance in a Lions’ shirt was the one nil victory over Cote d’Ivoire in Japoma last November.

Zambo Anguissa: The midfielder resumed training with his Italian side Napoli in midweek and got into action last Saturday as they drew 1-1 against leaders Inter Milan. Zambo Anguissa played the last fifteen minutes of the game but his side could not find the winning goal which would have seen them leapfrog Inter Milan.

Clinton Njie: He has shaken off the moments of despair he had during the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and returned to full training with his Russian Premier League outfit Dynamo Moscow.

Choupo Moting: The striker returned to full training with his team mates last Wednesday and was a second half substitute last Saturday and Bayern Munich were shocked 4-2 by VFL Bochum with Choupo playing the last 25 minutes of the game after coming on for Thomas Muller.

Karl Toko Ekambi: No time to waste for the striker who has picked up from where he left off. Karl Toko Ekambi was on target for Lyon as they beat Nice two nil last Saturday with the striker playing 74 minutes before being withdrawn.
