Cameroon: Indomitable Lions Coach Still Counting On Matip To Join The Squad In Gabon For AFCON

Cameroon manager Hugo Broos has said he is “still expecting” Liverpool defender  to report for duty for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Matip pulled out of contention for the tournament this month, saying he wanted to “concentrate on Liverpool,” with his last regular spell in the Cameroon squad coming in mid-2014.

The AFCON is set to run from January 14 to February 5, and Cameroon’s training camp begins on Tuesday.



But despite Matip making himself unavailable, along with six others including West Bromwich Albion right-back Allan Nyom, Broos has taken a hardline stance with their absence.

According to BBC Sport‘s John Bennett, Broos has said he’s “still expecting” the duo to arrive for Cameroon training ahead of the tournament in Gabon.

This could spark an ugly club vs. country row, with there previously being suggestions that Cameroon could call for FIFA to suspend the players that pulled out from club action for the duration of the tournament.

However, it has been reported that Liverpool don’t fear any development on that front.
