The list, which witnesses the comeback of some old guards into the Lions den, is dominated by youthful players. Lavagne’s maiden call up includes U-21 Yaya Banana who will play the final of the African Champions League with Esperance of Tunis. He featured in the central defense with the Junior National team at the Junior World Cup in Colombia. Another new name in the squad is Allan Romeo Nyom of Grenada FC in Spain.
He was unkown within Cameroon football circles until his call-up. The new coach also showed faith in youthful players like Jacques Zoua of FC Basel and Edgard Sali of AS Monaco. Another youngster that has not been called up for a while, Georges Mandjeck of Stade Rennais makes his comeback to the squad.
