While Charles Hubert Itandje was at his peak as the first choice goal-keeper for Racing Club of Lens, he outrightly declined to join the Indomitable Lions affirming that he preferred playing with the French National team. Several moves to lure him into the Cameroonian squad were futile.
Charles Itandje was born on November 2, 1982 in Bobigny, France of Cameroonian parents. He played for Liverpool and now loaned to Kavala , Greece following the Hillsborough Disaster ceremony in April 2009 where Itandje behaved inappropriately.
The AO Kavala goal-keeper seems to have regained his patriotic feeling towards his country and has declared his interest to play for the Cameroon National team. He is therefore expected to join the Lions in the next training session.
