Meanwhile, many people have denounced the attack on the striker’s family in Cameroon, saying it should serve as a wake-up call for African leaders and sport authorities to make the continent’s sport extremely appealing in order to entice talented players to stay and proudly represent their motherland.

The 2022 World Cup is currently taking place in Qatar, and a huge list of players who were born in Africa are playing for non-African nations.
