Fabrice Joseph Ebogo Ondoa has resumed training at his new club, Riga FC, kick442.com can report.
The 2017 AFCON winner has been clubless since departure from Istra at the end of last season but he will spend the rest of the current season at Riga FC who are preparing for the new domestic season.
The Latvian top-flight outfit agreed and signed the Cameroonian goalkeeper last week as reported by kick442.com, and he started training with the rest of his colleagues.
The move is likely to end the player’s long spell of lack of regular football.
Some sources at the club suggest the 25-year old could feature this Saturday when they take on Shakhtar Donetsk in mid season friendly.
Ondoa has also played for Gimnastic, Sevilla Atletico, Pobla de Mafumet FC and Barcelona B before moving to Belgium.
The Cameroonian goalkeeper joined Ostende in the summer of 2017 from Spanish side Sevilla on recommendation of the then Sports Director Hugo with whom he won the AFCON for Cameroon but failed to get game time and it has been so since then.
Unfortunately, Ondoa hasn’t had a run of games between the sticks since leaving Spain in 2017 thus comprising the national team opportunities for one of the stars of the Lions lightening of Lebreville 2027. In Ondoa’s absence, his cousin Andre Onana has been a regular for Cameroon while the likes of Simon Omossola and Devis Epassy have also had a few games under their belt.
Ondoa has represented his clubs on 27 occasions in just over four seasons explaining why he was left out of Cameroon’s 2021 AFCON squad.
The former UEFA Youth league best goalkeeper has somehow failed to match his heroics for country at Club level.
Rigas season and probably the Ondoa Renaissance begins on March 12 with a home fixture against Valmieras.
