The Lions already got their World Cup campaign off to a poor start after a 1-0 loss to Switzerland in the first group game, and now they have to face the rest of the campaign without their star goalkeeper.

The reason is still under speculation, but reports suggest that Onana and Song got into a heated argument about employing a more traditional style of goalkeeping in Cameroon, rather than the sweeper-keeper style that Onana is used to.

With Onana refusing to switch his playing style to suit Song's tactics, the pair did not see eye-to-eye abd Onana has been axed from the squad.

Onana will now be replaced in goal by Devis Epassy who plays for Abha in Saudi Arabia.
