Not only that, he also featured in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, where he achieved third place.

On November 9, 2022, Andre was selected in the final squad of the Cameroon national football team for the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

However, due to a disciplinary issue with manager Rigobert Song, he was sent home in the midst of the World Cup.

He grew up with his four brothers, of which only two are known: Wariner and Emmanuel. Online sources report that one of his brothers died at the age of 31. However, further information on his siblings is not out.

Seems Andre’s brothers want to keep themselves away from the limelight.

No wonder the soccer player has barely posted about them on his social media.

He caught a passion for soccer as he used to go to games with his elder brother.

As reported, his father was a soccer player himself back in the day but insisted that Onana must focus on study.

In February 2023, Melanie posted a series of pictures on her Instagram in the wedding dress & used hashtags like wedding, throwback & marriage.
