BREAKING: Toko Ekambi retires from international football

Karl Toko Ekambi has retired from international football following Cameroon’s round of 16 exit from the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

The 31-year-old forward made the announcement on Instagram. “Disappointed not to go any further but proud of my team for putting it all together. A fourth chapter of the Africa Cup of Nations closes, the end of a history. Forever an Indomitable Lion” he wrote.

Toko Ekambi scored one of Cameroon’s goals in the 3-2 sensational victory over Gambia in their last group stage match of the ongoing AFCON.

He is credited for Cameroon’s qualification for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, after scoring a last-minute goal in the qualifier against Algeria in Blida, which secured Cameroon’s ticket.

The 2017 AFCON champion has played for Cameroon 61 times, with a total of 14 goals.

He recently joined Saudi club Al-Ettifaq from Abha FC in the same league. He has had stints in Villarreal, Olympique Lyonnais, Rennes, and Angers.
