Minnesota United signs Cameroon international Frantz Pangop

Cameroon international Frantz Pangop has signed with Minnesota United and will join the Major League Soccer club for the 2018 season once his P1 Visa and transfer certificate are approved, the club announced on Tuesday.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder helped Cameroon qualify for the 2018 World Cup — making two appearances and scoring a goal in a win against Algeria — and most recently played for Union Douala in his native country’s top flight.

Minnesota assistant coach Ian Fuller said: “Pangop is quick, dynamic and has the skill to create and score goals — he’ll get people out of their seats. His movement is really positive, with and without the ball, and his national team experience will also be beneficial moving forward.”
