Cameroon’s main wing weapon at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations tournament, Christian Bassogog who tested positive for Covid-19 on Thursday has returned a negative Covid-19 test, allowing him to return to group training with the rest of his international colleagues.
Bassogog was one of 20 Cameroon players that participated in regular practice on Friday after missing the first few sessions.
The return of Bassogog is a real boast for the group as he contributes a lot on and off the pitch.
The 26-year old China-based defender on the books of Shanghai Shenhua is expected to come alive for Cameroon when the tournament gets underway on January 9.
Bassogog won the Most Valuable Player award in the 2017 competition, helping Cameroon to a fifth crown, but had a quiet tournament in 2019. The 37-capped winger is expected to add to his seven international goals during this AFCON.
Cameroon open their 20th appearance at the tournament against Burkina Faso, after which they will worry against Ethiopia and Cape Verde later in the group stages.
Bassogog, Toko Ekambi, Nicolas Moumie Ngamaleu, Eric Choupo-Moting,Njie Clinton are amongst wing options at Coach António Conceiçao’s during the tournament.
