Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting has retired from the Cameroon national team with immediate effect, according to FC Schalke 04.
That is why the 27-year-old striker will not participate in the African Cup of Nations, but will be traveling to the winter training camp in Benidorm in Spain on Wednesday with the team of Chefcoach Markus Weinzierl.
The Algerian Nabil Bentaleb and the Ghanaian Abdulrahman Baba will be missing in Benidorm. Both were appointed by their associations for the continental tournament in Gabon from 14 January to 5 February. Bernard Tekpetey, a Schalker, belongs to Ghana’s provisional squad.
