New Cameroon coach Toni Conceicao has seen his injury-list grow ahead of Saturday’s international friendly with Tunisia after three more players pulled out.
The Indomitable Lions had already seen midfielders Tristan Dingome (Reims, France) and Stephane Bahoken (Angers, France), and striker Jean-Pierre Nsame (Young Boys, Switzerland) pull out through injury.
And Conceicao has now lost three more as forward Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting (Paris St Germain, France), defender Gaetan Bong (Brighton & Hove Albion, England) and winger Nicolas Moumi Ngamaleu (Young Boys) also withdrew.
Ngamaleu has a thigh problem, Choupo-Moting is battling with a rib injury and Bong has an issue with his adductors.
It is not an ideal start for Conceicao in what is his first game in charge having been a surprise pick as head coach last month.
Cameroon will take on Tunisia in Rades, their first match since a 3-2 loss to Nigeria in the second round of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Egypt.
