One of the players that has gone unnoticed in the den of the intermediate Lions of Cameroon for the Total CHAN 2020 is PWD Social Club of Bamenda goalkeeper, Haschou Kerrido.
The 26-year-old penned a one year deal with the defending Cameroon league one champions, PWD Bamenda on September 11, 2020 in Bamenda from Club industriel Kamsar, in Guinea Conakry were he was voted best Goalkeeper in the Guinean league.
In the two matches played by the intermediate Lions of Cameroon in the ongoing Total African Nations Championship, Haschou Kerrido’s experience has been vital. His heroics against Zimbabwe helped Cameroon grabbed all three points while he was also very instrumental making several saves against Mali to help Cameroon win a point.
After the match against Mali, Cameroon’s sports minister, Prof Narcisse Mouelle Kombi and Roving ambassador, Albert Roger Milla singled out Haschou Kerrido in the dressing room and congratulated him for his performance against Mali.
“I want to congratulate you all especially the goalkeeper (referring to Haschou Kerrido). He remained focused and concentrated all through the match”, Roger Milla said.
Also, Malian goalkeeper, Djigui Diarra was full of praises for Haschou Kerrido after his teams one all draw on Wednesday January 20, 2021.
“Sincerely, that guy is extraordinary. He is short like me, but oh my God, he is just so good in goal. Yesterday, we gave our all, him (Haschou) and me”, goalkeeper Djigui Diarra said.
Haschou has a chunk of experience when it comes to football in Cameroon and some parts of Africa.
He was outstanding for PWD Bamenda during their two legged CAF Champions League preliminary against Kaizer Chiefs of South Africa where they were beaten by a goal to nil.
Haschou Kerrido has previously represented Dragon of Yaounde, Astres of Douala and Unisport of Bafang.
He has also been part of Cameroon’s National team.
Haschou Kerrido arguably remains the best in the intermediate Lions den since the start of this CHAN competition.
