Hit in the pubis, André Onana had to give up his place at the end of the match during Cameroon’s victory against Mauritius (3-0), Friday, as part of qualifying for the 2026 World Cup. The infirmary is filling up at Manchester United.
Manchester United didn’t need that right now. Starting in Cameroon’s big victory against Mauritius (3-0) on Friday, as part of qualifying for the 2026 World Cup, André Onana was injured. Hit in the pubis, he had to give up his place to Nîmes Fabrice Ondoa in the 80th minute of play. Forfeited for the next meeting of the Indomitable Lions, scheduled for Tuesday against Libya in Benghazi, he will return to England much earlier than expected.
He suffers from a “pubic condition”
“The medical image carried out by the doctors of the national team revealed a condition in the pubis,” said the Cameroonian Football Federation in a press release this Sunday. It remains to be seen how long he will be unavailable, while Manchester United, already faced with injuries to Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro among others, will travel to Everton next Sunday, for the 13th day of the Premier League. Sixth in the standings, Erik ten Hag’s men are seven lengths behind the leader, Manchester City. They are also off to a bad start in the Champions League.
Last in a group A where we find Bayern Munich, Copenhagen and Galatasaray, they only took three points during the first four days and remain with a big poor performance on the Copenhagen side (4-3). Onana, for his part, had a complicated start to say the least, being guilty of several errors. He arrived last summer from Inter Milan for 50 million euros.
