Ajax Goalkeeper Involved In Awful Looking Crash But Survives Unharmed

Andre Onana has been involved in a bad car crash, whilst on international duty with Cameroon, but the Ajax goalkeeper has thankfully walked away.

On Sunday, Onana played 90 minutes as Ajax had to come from behind to defeat Feyenoord, as they sought to get over their Champions League elimination.

The keeper was involved in bizarre scenes as there was a fire in stand behind him at the Johan Cruyff Arena, when a banner caught fire following the home fans letting off a flare.

Whilst that incident looked like it could have been very serious, things were soon underway at Ajax's home, and Onana has now escaped a second potentially serious problem in a matter of days.

The Cameroon international is now away on duty with his country, as they attempt to qualify for the World Cup later this year.

He was involved in an extremely nasty looking car crash, as he travelled to Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon, for the team's training camp.

The 25-year-old, along with the others involved in the crash, are said to have been fine and escaped from it unhurt.

Only the cars came away with any damage, and it's quite incredible no one else did when you see the state of the pair of vehicles.

Onana's lack of injuries means he is fit to face Algeria in the qualification play-off on Friday, with the second leg next Tuesday.

The five winners from the play-off games in the next week will all qualify for Qatar in the winter.

Last year the goalkeeper was banned for 12 months, which was later reduced to nine, after he tested positive for a banned substance, with Ajax appealing on the grounds that he accidentally took his wife's medication.

Following the ban, the price for Onana's card on FIFA Ultimate Team sky rocketed, as players feared the goalkeeper's card would become rarer to find.

The former Barcelona youth academy graduate's contract is set to expire in the summer and he's already confirmed he will be leaving Ajax.

It is expected that he will move to Inter Milan for next season, although the move is yet to be confirmed.
