The head coach of the intermediate lions of Cameroon Martin Ndtoungou Mpile, has summoned four players to camp, as they continue preparations for the African Nations championship.
PWD’s center back, Ngwang Brian Nyaba, who was sent packing from the squad by former Coach Yves Clement Arroga, has been recalled, while Thierry Tchuente who returned back to the country and joined cotonsport, has also been drafted into the squad. Tchuente was part of the intermediate lions’ early campings, before leaving for CS Chebba.
Two players have been invited into the den for the first time. Cotonsport’s wing forward, Marou Souaibou who has been in scintillating form in preseason, has been handed his maiden called up, just like Stade Renard’s Keumi Steve Roberts.
Reports also indicates that Martin Ndtoungou Mpile has sent four players packing from the squad. Eding Sport’s center back, Yves Alain Dooh Moukoko, Cotonsport’s Midfielder, Yannick Ebongue, Fortuna’s Banbe Thierry and Djiko FC’s Jacques Elogue Kelvin, have been sent back to their various club’s.
The intermediate lions have been in their first training camp under Martin Ndtoungou Mpile for a week now. The experience tactician was brought in to replace Yves Clement Arroga, who was shown the door following a series of unconvincing results.
The Ndtoungou Mpile led technical staff preferred to start working with the 28 man squad summoned by Yves Clement Arroga, but have now started their own revamp. Ebongue Yannick, Dooh Moukoko, and Banbe Thierry, have attended most of the intermediate lions’ campings, but are now facing the same faith like Mark O’ojong Nkongo, Etta Bawak, Rene Ndi, Nguede Nguede, Arouna Dang, and Ndeh Collins, who were sent home midway into the previous training camp, and are yet to be recalled.
The intermediate lions on Saturday recorded their first win of the Ndtoungou Mpile’s era, with a 2#1 win over Canon of yaounde, thanks to goals for Samuel Nlend and Francis Elimbi.
