Midfield dictator, Francis Bailang is yet to receive a call to Clement Arroga’s CHAN squad.

The 27-year-old made his return to Cameroon’s premier division in the second half of last season, aiding Union Sportive of Douala to stay above the relegation zone.

After an overlarge of fine performances from the heart of the midfield, the midfield sensation caught the eye and earned a move to country juggernauts, Cotonsport of Garoua.

Bailang has his name in the Cameroon cup hall of fame as he scored the lone goal in the 2018 Cup of Cameroon final and equally was voted the most valuable player.

Francis Bailang has been in the corridor of several national team setups from back in the day. The most notable perhaps, being preselected amongst a queue of local players, in view of the 2014 FIFA world cup – under then Lions coach, Volker Finke.

The former New Stars man has finally gotten his foot on the gas pedal and could bring a lot of quality in Arroga’s side.

Cameroon’s intermediate Lions are currently in camp, and news reaching this agency is; Abanda Nkoa pulled a hamstring and isn’t fully fit. Abanda’s fitness issues plus Mbarga Abega’s absence due to an external contract paves the way for Francis Bailang.

Before Cotonsport snapped Bailang, the latter had been involved in a couple of friendlies with Anye Derrick, Mark O’Ojong, Samuel Nlend, Rene Ndi, and Pange Lobe, with all above-mentioned players nodding in approval, the player’s succinct form.
