Retained as goalkeeper of the U-23 team of the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon at the end of the internship of the U20 and U23 selections of Cameroon in Paris, the young Jérôme Kwamo Kamdem is the subject of many questions in Cameroon because of his look.

Despite himself, Jérôme Kwamo-Kamdem has become one of the main attractions of the Cameroon U20 and U23 selection camp in Paris. Organized by the Cameroonian Football Federation at the Cdfas-High Level Sports Center of Val d’Oise to detect and recruit binationals wishing to join the ranks of the national team. The harvest was rather good for 17 athletes. Jérôme Noël Kwamo-Kamdem, selected as the new U-23 goalkeeper, is not talked about in Cameroon by his tact in his cage, nor by his 18 years of age. The young footballer is especially noticed by the color of his skin. Some people wonder who he really is, if he would be Cameroonian and what are the motivations of a “white” to choose Cameroon internationally.

It returns to us that Jérôme Kwamo-Kamdem is German by his mother, but effectively Cameroonian by his father Giles Kwamo-Kamdem, who is of mixed race and son of Cameroonian. Giles is notably the son of Augustin Kwamo Kamdem, trainer of the Academy of Armenia Bielefeld and elite of the Bangou village in West Cameroon. Born August 24, 2003 in Cameroon, goalkeeper Arminia Bielefeld (Bundesliga U19) has spent most of his life in Germany. But Jérôme Noël Kwamo-Kamdem has set his sights on the Cameroon jersey. A decisive choice which undoubtedly allows the Cameroonian selection to be better equipped with a view to qualifying for the next CAN in the category.

Among those summoned are three other goalkeepers including Kevin Djoky Edjenguele. Four defenders are summoned, including Ryan Tchato (Montpellier). The midfield is the largest compartment with eight summoned. They come mainly from France in the young teams of Montpellier, Bordeaux, Toulon, Metz and Germany (Hoffenheim and Munich 1860). Guy Yvan Koudjou (Metz), Simon Michez (Anderlecht), Daniel Tueto Fotso (Dinamo Zagreb) and Taddeus Nkeng (Hjk Helsinki) are the four attackers present. The group will work under the supervision of technicians present until Wednesday, October 27. Before going their separate ways, Cameroon will play an evaluation match against Entente Sanoit Saint Gratien.

We will remember from this internship that it was a brilliant action for the future of football through the summons of 17 players from all over Europe. And these new recruits come to recall the long list of lost talents: Kylian Mbappe, Samuel Umtiti, Aurélien Tchouameni, with the Blues of France. Breel Embolo, Yvon Mvogo with the Swiss Nati. US international Jordan Siebatcheu. Internationals of Cameroonian origin playing in foreign selections.
