Cameroon-Kuwait friendly: Alexandre Belinga prevents YOSA's Lionel Bong from shining

Lionel Bong, a defender who plays for Young Sports academy, and who was called to the national squad ahead of the clash against Kuwait on Sunday 25 March, was benched all through the encounter.



Many fans expected him to at least be given some little time on the pitch, to prove if he could be up to the task, but that was not the case.

Nevertheless, Cameroon thrashed Kuwait 3-1, with goals from Aboubakar (11th minute) and Bassogog (16th and 53rd Minutes)

Some of the lions could not make the rendezvous. There are some cases like that of Joel Tagueu who didn't take part in the friendly because his visa had expired and he could not leave Portugal, without having his situation fixed.

Choupo Moting, one of the key players was equally not present due to an injury.
