The fine form of Malaga’s Cameroonian shot stopper Kameni Idris Carlos against Barcelona in the La-Liga played a big role in helping the modest Spanish side hold the Catalan giants to a 0-0 draw.
Kameni frustrated Barcelona with top draw saves which frustrated the likes of Neymar, Francisco Alcacer, Arda Turan and co from scoring in the game despite his team finishing the game with 9 men.
Fans of the Super Eagles of Nigeria, Cameroon’s next opponent in the World Cup 2018 qualifiers were however happy that the 32 year old is no longer the first choice goalkepper for the Cameroonian national team.
Most of them expressed their joy on social media with posts that the highly rated goalkepper won’t be in goal when Super Eagles take on Cameroon in August 2017 in back to back World Cup qualifiers.
He has been in the international wilderness since losing his first team spot to Souleyman Hamidou at the World Cup 2010 in South Africa. Although he was left out subsequent squad for allegedly trying to orchestrate disorder in 2015.
Coach Volker Finke handed him a call up for the game against Niger Republic in Cameroon’s first World Cup 2018 qualifiers, but since his departure, the Malaga shot stopper has not been considered by new manager Hugu Broos.
Broos prefers 20 year old Sevilla shot stopper Joseph Ondoa to the 32 year old, so far Ondoa has kept goal for the team in their last two qualifiers, thanks to his fine form for his loan side Gimnastic de Tarragona in the Spanish second division.
