Onana was also required to make a number of saves. There was nothing he could do as Cameroon-born Embolo put the Swiss in front from close range, but he did save well from Remo Freuler and Granit Xhaka. Late in the game, when Cameroon were still trailing, Onana began to roam further out of goal. At one point he even found himself on the ball in front of his own centre-back, suggesting that perhaps he believed he would be better at progressing the ball up the pitch through the well-organised Swiss defensive lines.
It was not that he was against the Inter Milan player using his technical ability to pass out from the back to help his team have more possession, but he wanted to take more care. So he asked Onana to play the ball out using centre-back Nicolas Nkoulou and left-back Nouhou Tolo, instead of keeping possession himself, often for long periods and well outside his own goal. Onana, however, felt he was more than capable of doing just this. He wanted to retain the playmaking duties he had been entrusted throughout his time at Barcelona and Ajax and to feed the ball to the team’s standout midfield playmaker, Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa.

Castelletto subsequently found himself unmarked at the back post to knock into an unguarded net. But Cameroon were unable to keep the ball and protect their lead. And the repeated long balls lost them possession and invited waves of Serbia pressure. So Rigobert Song wanted a more "traditional" approach from his goalkeeper? Yeah, that'll do it pic. com/3XMUO2jC5v — Opta Analyst (@OptaAnalyst) November 28, 2022With half-time approaching, another long ball led to a scrap for possession which saw Serbia win a free kick in the Cameroon half.
He did not want a player on his bench who was not in agreement with his decisions. When the team sheet was submitted to FIFA just over an hour before kick-off, Cameroon listed Epassy as their starting goalkeeper, with Onana marked ‘absent’. News of the dispute then filtered out, shocking fans around the world.
Amid the pressure of a tournament, it is not uncommon for a manager and a player to argue, even heatedly. There have also been issues in Cameroon camps at international tournaments before. But this was something completely new. Although nobody in Cameroon was happy after their 2022 World Cup campaign began with a 1-0 defeat by Switzerland, there were no signs of this type of drama on the horizon. The Athletic’s analysis of that game did show Onana’s performance had stood out, as Stuart James identified in his detailed look at how all teams at this World Cup work the ball forward when they have a goal kick.

Or even sit on the bench. For his part, Onana was similarly clear that he now saw no reason to stay with the squad any longer. So, Epassy was picked instead for Monday’s game at the Al Janoub. The 29-year-old looked understandably nervous as he lined up before just his sixth international cap, and his first for over 12 months. This was by far the most high-profile moment of a senior career which has been spent mostly in the lower reaches of the Greek Super League, with APO Levadiakos, PAS Lamia 1964 and OFI Crete. Since joining Abha Club last summer, he has conceded 12 goals in seven Saudi Pro League games. From the first whistle, Cameroon’s kick-out and build-up strategy had obviously changed.
Epassy smashed three long balls into the opposition’s half within the opening minutes, while his defenders were also keen to get the ball forward as quickly as possible. That strategy initially seemed to pay off, with Song’s team opening the scoring. Epassy hit another goal kick long and it was flicked on by Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. Serbia’s Andrija Zivkovic collected the ball but then overhit a pass back towards his own goalkeeper, Vanja Milinkovic-Savic, to concede a corner.

Onana said he would do just that. Onana did not immediately leave, but the issue simmered after the squad returned to the Banyan Tree Hotel in central Doha. It was there, on the day before the game, that Song informed Devis Epassy of Saudi Pro League team Abha Club that he would be playing against Serbia. The next morning, Cameroon federation president Samuel Eto’o decided that Onana was to stay at the hotel instead of travelling to the Al Janoub Stadium with the rest of the squad. Song agreed with this call.
He is a modern goalkeeper, in the mould of Manchester City’s Ederson, Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen, or Bayern Munich’s Manuel Neuer, but not a radical outlier in how he interprets the role. Onana’s expansive way of playing had not been a major issue for any of the eight Cameroon managers who awarded him a total of 34 caps since his senior international debut in September 2016. Since taking the job last March, Song had picked Onana for all but one of the team’s games — including both legs of the play-off where Cameroon beat Algeria to qualify for Qatar.
He then brought in Song, his former international team-mate, for his third spell as national team coach. Congratulations @Song_Officiel_4, the new head coach of Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions 🇨🇲 It’s a privilege and honour to once more stand shoulder to shoulder with my former captain, and take our football to new heights. #TeamCameroon #IndompitableLions #AllezLesLions pic. com/cU3XQTNpir — Samuel Eto'o (@SamuelEtoo) March 1, 2022Song the footballer was an aggressive and commanding defender whose club career included spells at Liverpool, West Ham and Galatasaray. He earned 137 senior international caps for Cameroon over 17 years, playing in four World Cups.
Dusan Tadic’s delivery tempted Epassy to rush out but he was caught in no man’s land and could only watch as Strahinja Pavlovic’s excellently directed header found the bottom corner. Cameroon were rocked and a few minutes later Serbian midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic hit a shot from the edge of the box which Epassy got a hand to but could only help into the net. On the sideline, Song looked down at the ground. It got even worse for Cameroon seven minutes into the second half. Right-back Collins Fai’s slack pass to midfielder Martin Hongla allowed Serbia to regain possession and Aleksandar Mitrovic was soon knocking the ball into the net to make it 3-1. Again, Epassy might have done better, but the root of the goal suggested that maybe Song’s defenders should not be trusted with the ball in difficult positions in their own half.

Preparations for the World Cup had been relatively calm, especially compared to previous Cameroon campaigns. Having been elected president of the federation last December, Eto’o was the man in charge. It was he who decided to sack incumbent manager Antonio Conceicao after the team finished a disappointing third when hosting the Africa Cup of Nations in January.

(And being sent off in two. )Song the coach is a more softly spoken character. In 2016 he suffered a cerebral haemorrhage, leaving him in a coma. When naming Cameroon’s 26-man squad for the World Cup last month, he appeared to need help from his assistant to pronounce the names of some of the players included. “Strange to see a coach struggling with the names of players on his own list” ✍️@snewsafrica Coach Rigobert Song criticised for mispronunciation during #Cameroon’s squad announcement.
