Equinoxe Tv also revealed that forward, Clinton Njie, has recovered from injury and is available for section.

Aboubakar finished top scorer at the AFCON 2021 held in Cameroon with eight goals.

The 32-year-old has scored four goals, made one assist in 12 games for Turkish Super Lig giants Besiktas.
