Experienced Cameroonian goalkeeper Haschou Kerrido of PWD of Bamenda has been handed a first call up to the intermediate Lions of Cameroon.
The 26-year-old former Astres of Douala and Unisport of Bafang netminder has been named in a 28-man squad in place of Anye Derick Fru of Cotonsport of Garoua.
Kerrido has been very impressive for his Club in multiple pre-season games and the CAF Champions league defeat against Kaizer Chiefs last Sunday in Limbe.
The talented shot stopper is a Cameroon international awaiting debut. He was in Cameroon’s squad for the 2021, now 2022, AFCON qualifiers against Cape Verde and Rwanda late last year.
The former Dragon Yaoundé shot stopper was also one of four goalkeepers drafted into coach António Conceição Da Silva Oliveira’s 34-man squad for Cameroon’s games against Mozambique in March this year, alongside Fabrice Ondoa, Andre Onana Onana and Epane Yanick. Unfortunately the outbreak of the Corona Virus pandemic in March forced a stop in the qualifiers till now.
A combination of his pedigree, potentials and performances in the past has put him on the news since his return home.
A switch to PWD of Bamenda with CAF Champions League football, barely months before the CHAN enhanced his chances of getting into Cameroon’s local selection and now he has been handed the opportunity to show his know-how.
PWD social Club of Bamenda, the 2020 Cameroon Elite One champions and representative of the country in the upcoming CAF Champions League have had their persistent goalkeeping problems in the title winning season solved with the arrival of Haschou.
It is hope that alongside Dande Junior and Epane Litizi or Anye Derick waiting in the wings the best options be picked for the upcoming tournament.
