The Squad is a mix of experience, youth, and talent, with leaders sprinkled throughout the group. In this article, we will critically examine the Squad per position.

Here are Song's choices to face Burundi.


Davis Epassy, Fabrice Ondoa, Andre Onana

Cameroon Vs Burundi Starting Line up: Who's in and Who's Out?

Manchester United Goalkeeper Andre Onana has been recalled after the troubles of Qatar 2022. He is almost sure to start between the sticks. 

Epassy, the man who replaced Onana at the World Cup, has been dropped from the starting lineup by his club, not even making the bench in his team's last few games.

Fabric Ondoa is still unattached after leaving FK Auda and will compete for the backup spot with Epassy.


Darling Yongwa, Christopher Wooh, Nouhou Tolo, Malcom Bokele, Oumar Gonzalez, Enzo Tchato, Olivier Mbaizo, Harold Moukoudi

Cameroon Vs Burundi Starting Line up: Who's in and Who's Out?

Christopher Wooh will start in the heart of the defense; the big question is who to partner with the Rennes  Man in the absence of Castelletto and the experienced Nicholas N'kolou.

Harold Moukoudi had a stellar campaign for Greece Champions AEK Athens and might get the nod ahead of Oumar Gonzalez.

Nouhou Tolo is the automatic pick for the left-back spot while the Jury is still out for the choice of right-back.

Olivier Mbaizo did a decent job in the Lions' last game against Mexico and has been understudy to Fai Collins for a while now, so expect him to get the starting berth ahead of Montpellier man Enzo Tchato.

Zambo Anguissa , Regis Mughe, Gael Ondoua, Oum Gouet, Olivier Ntcham, Olivier Kemen, Elliott Njongue

Cameroon Vs Burundi Starting Line up: Who's in and Who's Out?

Frank Zambo Anguissa is returning from injury but should start alongside Olivier Ntcham and Oliver Kemen. Oum Gouet and Regis Mughe are solid options depending on Song's formation.


Toko Ekambi, Moumi Ngamalue, Bryan Mbuemo, Clinton Njie, Vincent Aboubakar, Eric Tchoupo Moting

Cameroon Vs Burundi Starting Line up: Who's in and Who's Out?

Mbuemo and Aboubakar are the only nailed starters in the attack line, but the experience of Toko Ekambi and Tchoupo Moting will surely come in handy. 

The in-form Njie Clinton provides a reliable cover for the left wing, but it is the work rate of Ngamaleu that shades the argument.

So here's hippoinfos' Cameroon XI 

Onana is the man between the sticks.

Zambo Anguissa, Olivier Kemen, and Olivier Ntcham look like the most realistic midfield combination.

The reliable Aboubakar starts through the middle, with Bryan Mbuemo and Moumi Ngamaleu offering support from the wings.

Cameroon XI (4-2-3-1) :Onana, Tolo, Wooh, Moukoudi, Mbaizo, kemen, Ntcham, Anguissa, Mbuemo, Ngamaleu, Aboubakar
