Veteran, former Astres of Douala and Kumbo Strikers keeper Lukong Nelson Bongaman after the CAF African champions league game against UMS said he would be available for the CHAN if the opportunity comes.
After a stellar performance for AS Vita club between the sticks, the keeper opened up quite frankly on playing the CHAN back home “of course I am a Cameroonian, if I am called I’d always be there to answer for my country“.
Bongaman showed some excellent reflexes for a keeper of his age, keeping what looked a frightening attack of UMS on paper at bay.
The CHAN (African Nations Championship) is meant just for home based players, so if the 39-year-old wants to represent the country at that level he needs to play in the Cameroonian league.
Bongaman is one of the longest serving foreign players currently playing in Congo. He arrived the club since 2008 and has since then made 11 years at the club.
He has won 3 National LINAFOOT trophies and equally, agonizingly lost out to Raja Casablanca in the finals of the CAF confederations cup in 2018.
