Indomitable Lions of Cameroon shot stopper Devis Epassy Mbota, of Greek Super League side OFI Crete has had a great start to the ongoing Greek Super League season, keeping five clean sheets in nine appearances.
The 28-year old made six saves in 90 minutes to keep another clean sheet, this time around, against Atromitos on Saturday, in Match-Day nine of the domestic Championship.
Though Fiorin Durmishaj scored twice in quick succession within 10 minutes of the game, the level-headed Cameroonian keeper is the reason his side went home with all three points.
Epassy stood between the daring Atromitos attack and a goal throughout the game, justifying the trainer’s decision to play him since his arrival from Pas Lamia less than three months ago.
Taking the latest figures into consideration, the net minder averages five saves per game this term; which is the most for any keeper in the Super League, going by details fished out by the kick442.com team.
Epassy is expected to leave Greece immediately after the game, to head to Cameroon to prepare for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers games against the Flames of Malawi and the Elephants of the Ivory Coast on November 11 and 14 respectively.
The five-capped Cameroonian keeper is one of four retained by António Conceiçao for the upcoming FIFA window and has a huge chance of playing as it has been in the past three international breaks.
Epassy joins Andre Onana, Jean Efala Komguep and Simon Omossola as some of the abundant goalkeeping options Cameroon can count on during this November window.
