RC Lens defender Christopher Wooh has agreed to switch allegiance from France to Cameroon ahead of the 2022 FIFA World cup in Qatar.
According to Goal.com Wooh, a former France under-17, 18 and 20 player, will represent Cameroon, where his parents hail from.
This comes barely days after Wooh was approached by the Samuel Eto’o led Cameroon football federation as part of the process of building a more formidable Indomitable Lions team for future competitions.
Product of Puiseux Louvres and Chantilly Academy, 20-year old Wooh has had a brilliant first season at Lens; featuring in 14 Ligue 1 games and a heater of one assist.
Football’s world governing body say players must be either born in the country they represent, or have had a parent or grandparent born there or have served an uninterrupted residential qualification period of five years. Wooh’s parents are Cameroonians though he was born and grew up in France.
The Louvres-born center-back is still being admired and lured by the French football federation, who are also in the race to have the 1.90m defender as one of their own in the senior selection.
Joining Cameroon gives coach Rigobert Song a good younger player to partner with the likes of Jean-Charles Castelletto, Michael Ngadeu, Jerome Onguene among others.
He has nailed his colours to the Indomitable fraternity and could make his debut in the nearest future starting with the 2023 AFCON qualifiers next month.
