The Indomitable Lions face Morocco in Casablanca on Friday, before playing Brazil in an international friendly match on Tuesday.

Cameroon coach Clarence Seedorf has called Real Betis midfielder Wilfrid Kaptoum as replacement for injured Petrus Boumal.

The Federation of Cameroon Football (Fecafoot) announced that Ural Yekaterinburg midfielder Boumal will not make it for the two matches.

Coach Seedorf picked up former Barcelons B midfielder Kaptoum to step in for Boumal ahead of Friday’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier away in Morocco as well as the international friendly against global giants Brazil.

Kaptoum joins on the sidelines Montpellier defender Ambroise Oyongo who has also been ruled out of the two matches.

"Ambroise Oyongo will not play matches against Morocco and Brazil due to a wound on his right knee," ESPN quoted Fecafoot as having announced.

“ Boumal will not be able to take part in the next Indomitable Lions' games because of an injury he sustained with his club.

"According to the national team doctor, Professor William Ngatchou, who consulted the player upon his arrival and did his imaging, his wound requires medical care."

Cameroon will host the 2019 Afcon finals and the Indomitable Lions are participating in the qualifiers to earn some game time.

Leading Group B with eight points from four matches, Cameroon coach and Dutch legend Seedorf has managed to win one of his three matches in charge since being appointed Cameroon coach in August.
