Idriss Carlos Kameni is among the many missing players from Hugo Bross‘ list for both games of Cameroon. The Indomitable Lions will face the Scorpions of Gambia on September 3, 2016 in Limbe, in the context of qualifying for the 2017 AFCON tournament to which Cameroon is already qualified. Three days later (6 September 2016), Cameroon will receive Gabon on a friendly in Limbe, as part of an exhibition game for the World Cup 2018 qualifiers.
If some non-summoned are injured or suspended, the coach said to have left some key players at rest just to see in action some young players. Carlos Kameni is not in this case. Hugo Bross said the ball is in the camp of the goalkeeper of Fc Malaga (Spain). But for his part, “I’ll never call Kameni via phone again,” said the Belgian coach.
Hugo Bross returned on the Kameni matter that arose during the double confrontation with France and Gambia in May and June 2016. “I recognize that the situation was a bit unpleasant for him (Kameni, Ed) because he was not initially called. But with the suspension of Andre Ako, I recalled him. I asked him if he was ready to come, because I know it’s not normal to call Kameni to supplement the defection of a young player. But he said yes, “says the coach.
But the former player of Espanyol never showed up. “He said on Tuesday, I’m here. Alphonse (Tchami Team Manager Ed) handled everything. But Kameni never came, he never gave a sign of life. Until he told us about a problem of his son. I understand, but I think it would be polite to have called me. In addition he returned to Cameroon telling a whole different story. The truth is what I just said, “ said the coach.
For Bross, Kameni showed that he is not yet ready to play for Cameroon. “I want volunteer players,” said the former coach of JS Kabylie.
