The day after shedding tears on the Atalanta Bergamo field (0-3) following Olympique de Marseille’s elimination in the Europa League semi-final, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang received some positive news on Friday.

Indeed, the OM striker features in the list of Gabon’s coach, Thierry Mouyouma, unveiled on Friday ahead of the matches against Ivory Coast (June 7th in Korhogo) and Gambia (June 11th at home) for the 3rd and 4th rounds of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

It’s the first time the former Gunner will be available for the coach. Recall that PEA did not come to have his injury assessed during the first gathering of the Mouyouma era last October despite his call-up, which upset the coach and led him to do without the man with 27 goals this season in all competitions in his subsequent lists. Until a meeting resolved their differences in March.

Noha Lemina, the Surprise Inclusion
Also returning is midfield stalwart Guélor Kanga, excluded from the squad in March due to disciplinary issues. However, Aaron Boupendza, declared ineligible by the Federation until further notice, and Didier Ibrahim Ndong remain banned.

The other major addition to the list is the first call-up for Noha Lemina at just 18 years old. Despite limited playing time at Wolverhampton (168 minutes with the reserve team), where he is loaned by Paris Saint-Germain, the former French U17 international is called up for the first time and will surely be mentored by his older brother, Mario, who is one of the senior players alongside Denis Bouanga, Jim Allevinah, and Bruno Ecuele Manga. It’s worth noting that Gabon, who defeated Kenya (2-1) and Burundi (2-1), currently shares the top spot in the group with Ivory Coast.
