Time is beginning to run out if Cameroon are to appoint a new coach before their next matches in March which are qualifiers for the 2017 African Nations Cup.

Goalkeeper Yvon Mvogo the future for Switzerland and Young Boys?

Yvon Mvogo is only 20 but is already impressing between the posts in Switzerland.

Yvon Mvogo made some crucial saves to help Young Boys through to the Europa League knockout stages, and the 20-year-old goalkeeper will hope to produce a similarly strong performance when they host Everton on Thursday in the first leg of their round of 32 tie.

Born in Yaounde, Cameroon, Mvogo's earliest memories include his family gathering around a television set to watch the country's national team in action. He and his parents moved to Switzerland when he was 6, and he began his training at local...

Three things learned from Ivory Coast's Group D-clinching 1-0 triumph over Cameroon at the African Nations Cup.

Gradel comes to life

A frequently featured substitute of recent times, with former coaches Francois Zahoui and Sabri Lamouchi using him sparingly as cover for Gervinho and Salomon Kalou, Max Gradel has slowly come to life in this tournament, as some playing time for his country is proving what a useful player he can be.
