The Indomitable Lions’ of Cameroon first choice goalkeeper, Andre Onana has been dropped from the World Cup squad after a falling out between the pair.
According to various reports, the Inter Milan goalkeeper doesn’t want to play the way manager, and national legend, Song wants his side to play.
Onana was initially named in the starting line up to face Serbia in their second game of the World Cup. But had an argument with Rigobert Song about how they should approach the game.
The former Ajax shot stopper is known to often play off his line and try to pass out from the back, something that Rigobert Song doesn’t want his team to do.
In his place, Cameroon have been forced to play back up keeper Devis Epassy, the 29-year-old who plays for Saudi Arabian side Abha Club.
It is Epassy’s sixth appearance for his country, but the first time he’s appeared in the World Cup.
The Africans started their World Cup campaign with a 1-0 loss to Switzerland, leaving them needing a positive result of some sort against Serbia.
In that opening defeat Breel Embolo scored the only goal of the game, with the Swiss forward refusing to celebrate against the country of his birth.
Their opponents on Monday, Serbia, lost to Brazil in their opening game, thanks to Richarlison’s brace in the second half.
The Tottenham Hotspur forward scored arguably the goal of the tournament, with his bicycle kick, to end the Serb’s chances of earning a point.
Brazil face Switzerland later on Monday and the winners can guarantee their place in the next round.
