Andre Onana, typically Cameroon’s starting goalkeeper, has been sent home from the football World Cup in Qatar for disciplinary reasons after a dispute with the team’s coach, Rigobert Song. The 26-year-old was “temporarily suspended” from the squad, the Cameroon football federation said in a statement on Tuesday. The suspension will last for the rest of the tournament. The federation said it had booked Onana a flight back to Milan, where the goalie plays for Inter Milan. Onana also released a statement alluding to his disagreement with Song over team tactics, which had led to him being dropped for Cameroon’s 3-3 draw with Serbia on Monday.
