Kameni, currently languishing on the bench at Malaga, is among those players blamed for the poor form that led to Cameroon's shock elimination in the African Nations Cup qualifier last month.

Also missing from the squad is Stephane Mbia, who did not feature in key game against the Cape Verde Islands on October 14, and German-based attacker Idrissou Mohammadou, who was jeered by the large crowd as Cameron were eliminated by the Cape Verdians.

New coach Jean-Paul Akono named Jean Paul Yontcha of Olhanense in Portugal and Gilles Ngomo, who plays for Algerian side CS Constantine, for the first time. The match against Albania is being played in Geneva.
