With 38 caps to his name, Onana’s journey with the Cameroonian squad has been marked by turbulence rather than tranquility. Tensions with former coach Rigobert Song and Samuel Eto’o, the president of the Federation (Fecafoot), have been evident, culminating in a controversial episode during the recent Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast. Arriving late to join his teammates due to club commitments, Onana found himself relegated to the bench after just one appearance in the tournament, sparking speculation about the future of his international career.

However, a potential shift in this narrative is emerging under Marc Brys. During his European tour to assess players ahead of the Indomitable Lions’ upcoming gathering in June, the Belgian tactician made a significant move by meeting with the 28-year-old goalkeeper.

Brys went a step further by attending Onana’s latest Premier League fixture against Sheffield United, indicating a proactive approach to integrating the talented shot-stopper back into the national team fold.

This meeting and Brys’ personal involvement in observing Onana’s performance suggest a willingness to mend the strained relationship and potentially revive Onana’s international career.

It’s worth noting that Brys was the first Cameroonian international player to publicly support the coach’s controversial appointment, signaling a mutual respect that could lay the groundwork for a new beginning.

As speculation swirls regarding the future trajectory of Onana’s involvement with the Indomitable Lions, Brys’ proactive engagement offers a glimmer of hope for reconciliation and a fresh start for one of Cameroon’s most talented goalkeepers
