Choupo-Moting has been named by Seedorf as the stable captain going into the AFCON 2019. After several arms were handed the responsibility, the privilege and weight would be with the tricky forward.

During a press conference that lasted for an hour at Mont Febe the gaffer told reporters that he is going with Choupo-Moting (30) because of the technique and how well he knows the values of the county.

Most at times when he has been handed the responsibility he has gone ahead to super perform; most noticeably at the AFCON qualifiers when things were tight against Malawi and Comoros, Choupo bailed the Lions out of jail.

Seedorf mentioned that aside from the PSG striker there are so many other leaders within the ranks of the Lions, an example being a player like Michael Ngadeu.

Moting would receive the flag this day in the fareware game to go and represent the nation in the best of fashions.
