Vincent Patey Aboubakar is set to return to action in the month of April, after suffering a damaged cruciate knee ligament in September 2018, against C.D Tondela. He underwent surgery, which has kept him on sideline for over six months now.

The goal hunter has been missed dearly by club and country, but most prominently his country. Aboubakar, is yet to experience life on the pitch under new head coach, Clarence Seedorf.

The Dutch duo, Seedorf and Kluivert indeed were brought in to play flamboyant football, but the team under their stewardship has  scored just 2 goals in 5 games, which is equivilent to one goal in every 225 minutes.

The goal droughts could potently be solved with the return of Vincent Aboubakar. He scored 4 goals in 20 caps for the U20 level for national colors and has gone further to hit the back of the net 20 times in 65 appearances for the senior indomitable lions. He got the award winning goal with a fine effort that helped Cameroon beat Egypt in Gabon to clinch their firth AFCON tittle.

the 27-year-old is one of the most important and experienced in the present Cameroon team.It is rather unfortunate that he wouldn’t be available for selection in the last qualification game against the Comoros, build for Saturday 23 March, in the 45000 seats capacity stadium in Yaounde.

the former Cotonsport Academy graduate has timed his return to perfection given that the first 24 team AFCON in Egypt would be played few months from now and the FC Porto forward also erupted in joy beacause the club found a way through to the last 8 of the UEFA Champions league, and they are level on points with table toppers, Benfica who only have a superior goal diffrence of 11.

Aboubakar’s  return would send a shiver down the spine of most opponents.
The 6 footer is back, and hopefully he comes with a bang for both club and country.
