The winger was on a self-imposed exile away from internationals after having been bored for being overlooked.

The 28-year-old had been finding it difficult to break into the starting line up since debuting against Senegal with Ousman Jallow, Momodou Ceesay and Mustapha Jarju preferred at strike.

Sawaneh, however, has ended his ostracising of the national team after accepting coach Raoul Savoy’s call-up, as the latter opts for experience over exuberance for the forthcoming match.

And ahead of the September 6th scintillating contest, the former Raec Mons forward has vowed to live up to expectation.

“I’m happy with (my) selection,” the ex Kortijk, Lech Poznan, Mechelen and Lech Poznan man said reacting to his call-up.

“I will always do anything to represent my country. I’m ready (for Cameroon),” he said.

Ibou will be the only experienced striker and is expected to be partnered by either Swedish-based Pa Dibba or Bubacarr Trawally in China.
