Andre Onana Cameroon 2022 World Cup
Supporters in Africa had lots to say after the Inter Milan shot-stopper opted to retire from international duties

Experienced goalkeeper Andre Onana announced his retirement from the Cameroon national team on Friday morning.

This happened a couple of weeks after falling out with the Indomitable Lions coach Rigobert Song during the World Cup held in Qatar.

Onana was sent home after the first game against Switzerland, with Song citing a breach of discipline as the reason behind his decision.

The African side fell 1-0 against Switzerland and drew 3-3 with Serbia before getting a high-profile 1-0 win over Brazil but it was not enough as the Swiss and the Samba Boys advanced from their group.

What are the fans saying? Have a look below...
