In a surprising turn of events, Christian Leonel Ateba, the Dynamo de Douala striker, has been called up to the Indomptable Lions squad as a replacement for the injured Vincent Aboubakar.

The 24-year-old will be joining the national team for the double encounters against Mauritius on November 17th and Libya on November 21st, both of which are crucial matches counting for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

The decision to include Ateba in the squad was made by Rigobert Song, the head coach of the Indomptable Lions, who expressed confidence in the striker’s abilities.

Ateba has been in impressive form for Dynamo de Douala in the local league, scoring crucial goals and displaying exceptional skills on the field.

Ateba’s call-up comes as a result of Aboubacar’s unfortunate injury, which occurred during a training session earlier this week.

The Besiktas striker, who has been an integral part of the national team, suffered an injury that will sideline him for the upcoming matches. This setback prompted Song to search for a suitable replacement, ultimately leading to Ateba’s inclusion.

Note, Ateba’s call-up to the national team is a dream come true for the young striker, who has always aspired to represent his country at the highest level.

It is worth mentioning, it is the very first time Christian Leonel Ateba has been called to represent Cameroon in the Lion’s den.
