In a conversation with Skysports-report , Tchamadeu emphasized the importance of performing well during the international break to secure his spot in the AFCON squad. He sees this opportunity as a major milestone for himself and a source of pride for his parents.
Joining forces with Premier League stars Andre Onana and Bryan Mbuemo in Rigobert Song’s squad, Tchamadeu acknowledges the value of seeking guidance from experienced players who have reached the pinnacle of the sport.
