Joel Matip Cleared To Play for Liverpool

Liverpool defender Joel Matip has been cleared to play by FIFA after it dismissed the club-versus-country case which had been rumbling on for several weeks.

The Reds confirmed that FIFA has opted against investigating Cameroon’s claims over Matip’s eligibility.

The Centre-back, has always maintained that he has retired from international football and does not want to play for Cameroon despite their attempts to call him up for the African Nations Cup but Cameroon Football Federation said he should have issued his statement in writing.

Matip, who was withdrawn from the last two match-day squads because of confusion over his availability, is now eligible to play.
