André-Joël Eboué (born 25 June 1974) is a Cameroonian retired footballer who played as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Born in Yaoundé, Eboué's 17-year senior career was spent mainly in lower league football, his first team being Olympic Mvolyé, and he also represented in his country Tonnerre Yaoundé. Abroad, he represented R.A.A. Louviéroise (Belgium, no games), Sevilla Atlético (Spain), O Elvas CAD, S.C. Freamunde (both in Portugal), A.S. Varese 1910 (Italy), Stade Beaucairois, Blanc-Mesnil SFB, Villemomble Sports and AS Orly (all in France).

Eboué's only professional spell occurred in the 2000–01 season, when he backed up Spaniard Rufino Lekué at Freamunde and the club ranked dead last in the second division.[1][2] In May 2002, whilst with Varese, he was attacked by a group of 30 hooligans, being inflicted minor injuries.[3][4]

International career[edit]

Eboué represented the Cameroonian under-20 team at the 1993 FIFA World Youth Championship. He was selected by the full side for the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup,[5] but eventually did not win one single cap.
