Onana Will Miss Opening (AFCON) Match Against Guinea For A Manchester United’s Premier League Game Against Tottenham. 

André Onana is set to miss Cameroon’s first game at the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Ivory Coast, to make himself available for Manchester United’s Premier League fixture against Tottenham.

ESPN source revealed that Onana was given permission by the Cameroonian FA to skip a warm-up camp in Saudi Arabia to feature for United against Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup on Monday.

The goalkeeper is now set to delay his departure even further to play against Tottenham at Old Trafford on Sunday, and a source has told ESPN that the Cameroon Federation has accepted he is unlikely to be available for their first AFCON group game against Guinea 24 hours later on January 15.

Onana will only play in the final two games in Group C against Senegal on January 19 and Gambia January 23.

He will miss United’s FA Cup fourth round tie against either Newport County or Eastleigh on the weekend of January, 27-28 and could remain with Cameroon until February 11 if they were to reach the final of the tournament, which is being held in Ivory Coast.
