Afcon 2021 Qualifiers: Aboubakar returns as Bassogog leads Cameroon squad

Porto striker Vincent Aboubakar has been selected for Cameroon’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying matches against Cape Verde and Rwanda.

Although he is yet to play for Porto this season, Aboubakar has fought his way back to good shape after going under the knife for an anterior cruciate ligament injury he suffered in September 2018.

The injury ruled the 27-year-old out of Afcon 2019 in Egypt but he is now set to make his first appearance for the Indomitable Lions since March 2018.

Also included in Antonio Conceicao’s 21-man squad is China-based Christian Bassogog, Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana, PSG star Eric Choupo-Moting while Angers talisman Stephane Bahoken and Dynamo Moscow’s Clinton Njie are on the waiting list.
