Cameroon goalkeeper Andre Onana has been involved in a serious car accident ahead of their 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Algeria.
The Ajax shot-stopper was reportedly on his way to Doula from the capital city Yaounde on Tuesday morning when the incident happened.
However, he survived the accident that involved three vehicles without serious injury. So far, no casualties have been reported.
It means the custodian is still available for the Indomitable Lions who will host the former Africa Cup of Nations champions on Friday.

Meanwhile, the Indomitable Lions are set to be without Napoli midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa for the aforementioned tie.
The 26-year-old was injured last weekend when turning out for his club against Udinese in Serie A, where they came from a goal down, scored by Gerard Deulofeu, to win 2-1 courtesy of Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen’s double.
Zambo Anguissa played the entire game but suffered an injury as confirmed by the Indomitable Lions, who have now brought in Arnaud Djoum of Apollon Limassol to take his place.
