Njie Clinton and Eric Maxim Choupo Moting are the big absentees in Broos pre-selected 30-man squad to play the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Morocco on June 10 in Yaounde.
Njie was part of the group that lifted the 2017 Nations Cup trophy in Gabon though spent most of the time warming the bench as substitute.
It would be right to conclude that Broos is not getting the satisfaction he wanted from Njie and has decided to bring in fresh strikers to test upfront.
Choupo Moting though absent from the Nations Cup made a comeback but has not equally been selected.
Cameroon coach Hugo Broos in the meantime has handed first caps to new players he hopes to include in his squad for the Nations Cup qualifiers, the friendly against Columbia and the Confederations Cup in June.
Cameroon is set to play Morocco on June 10 counting for the first day of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, Cameroon 2019. Three days later the African Champions take on Columbia on June 13 in Spain as preps for the Confederations Cup.
Handed their first selection in Broos’ 30-man squad to reinforce the defence are Castelleto Jean Charles, defender who plays for Red Stars in France and Lucien Owona, centre back for Alcorcon in Spain.
In the midfield Boumal Petrus CSKA SOFIA with his mobility and displacement in the field caught the Broos’ attention.
Two new strikers, Boumal Olivier of Panathiniakos is gifted with his left leg and Nsame Jean Pierre Servette FC in Geneva who score 17 goals in 18 appearances in 2016.
Apart from the curiosity with the unknown faces, there are also comebacks as the list reveals the return of goalkeeper Andre Onana who has been in top form, extended his contract with Ajax Amsterdam and set to play the Europa League finals with club on May 24.
Onana forms a good pair with Fabrice Ondoa and there would be a health competition for the first goalkeeper.
As a land of goalkeepers Broos certain had to choose from the many in top form, Idris Carlos Kameni in shape with Malaga.
We also note the return of Salli Edgard and Ndip Tambe and Gerome Guioatha not selected after the Nations Cup.
Two strikers have however been dropped, Njie Clinton was part of the 2017 nations Cup squad and Choupo Moting came back after the Nations Cup.
