The French-Cameroonian striker of Brentford, author of a good performance at the weekend against West Ham, goal and pass, seems to be ready to join the Indomitable Lions.
‘‘It’s a good thing that we’re going to be able to get the best out of our players,” he said, adding that he’d like to be able to help the team in the coming months. Byran Mbeumo now sees life in green-red-yellow. Until then, he had played in the youth categories in France (U17, U20 and U23). According to Fifa’s regulations on the status of players with dual nationality, he has the right to change his nationality.
Several times approached by the technical staff of the Cameroon national football team, the Brentford striker had always asked for time to think about his decision. Tired of waiting for a call-up to the French national team, Bryan Mbeumo seems to have matured his thoughts. The qualification of Cameroon for the 2022 World Cup certainly weighed a lot in his choice.
The former Troyes player is now open to the idea of joining the Indomitable Lions. It is his agent who confirmed this development. A godsend for Cameroon, who are looking for a powerful player on the front line.
The arrival of Bryan Mbeumo would be a real asset for our national team as his profile is so special. Capable of playing in small spaces, of provoking the ball at foot, the native of Avallon also has a very good passing quality and a beautiful shot.
He can play on the side as well as in the middle. This season, Bryan Mbeumo has played 29 Premier League games (out of 32) for 4 goals and 7 assists, including a sparkling performance last Sunday against West Ham. He scored a superb goal with the outside of his left foot – his eighth this season and fourth in the Premier League – from a throw-in by Toney (48th). He then served Toney, who scored with his head, with a magnificent volley (64th).
We hope that the Indomitable Lions‘ technical staff will contact him in order to start the administrative procedures. It would be interesting that he is operational from June in the framework of the qualifiers for the Can d’Ivoire 2023. It is a question for him to adapt to the games of the Lions; to immerse himself in the realities of the den and the country.
