England-based forward Bryan Mbeumo has agreed to represent Cameroon over France following fruitful discussions with football officials in the former.
A release from the Secretary General of FECAFOOT – Blaise Djounang this Friday confirmed the move.
” The Cameroon Football Federation is pleased to announce to its national and international public the footballer Bryan Mbeumo has pledged his sporting allegiance to the Cameroon National football team following a lengthy discussion,” a portion of the release read.
The native of the West Region Cameroon who is uncapped for any category of the Cameroon national team. He scored four goals and provided seven assists in 35 matches for Brentford last term and FECAFOOT says his decision to switch is motivated by the newfound credibility the Samuel Eto’o led executive have instilled at FECAFOOT.
The native of Avallon- France came through the youth teams of CO Avallonais. He has sparkled since arriving Brentford three seasons ago.
The former ESTAC Troyes forward was eligible to represent either France by birth or Cameroon by descent but has opted to play for his father’s country.
Cameroon has started the process to obtain FIFA’s clearance to field the player and it is expected to be done before the end of the year.
Mbeumo is expected to be in coach Rigobert Song’s squad for the September FIFA friendlies.
FECAFOOT is still working on getting a few more Cameroon-eligible players on board before the FIFA World Cup later this year in Qatar.
