Four days after producing one of the best goalkeeping displays in a UEFA Champions League final, Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana is back home in Cameroon.

The former Indomitable Lions shot-stopper joined his community folks for some street football action as he enjoys his break in his native Yaoundé.

Onana's brilliant footwork could be attributed to his love for playing football with friends anytime he returns to Cameroon.

In a photo shared on social media, Onana is seen with his childhood mates as they participate in an exciting game at the Biyem Assi pitch.

Last summer, a video of Onana playing on a grassless pitch went viral as he displayed incredible skills while playing a role in the middle of the park.

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old enjoyed an outstanding campaign with Italian giants Inter Milan, helping them reach the final of the UEFA Champions League.

The former Ajax goalkeeper kept eight clean sheets in the competition, becoming Inter's first-ever shot-stopper to chalk that feat, as reported by FootyStats.

In the final on Saturday in Istanbul, the Nerazzuri fell short after Rodri's stunning strike won the title for Manchester City.

Onana consoles Lautaro Martinez

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Onana showed class after immediately running to a visibly broken Lautaro Martinez to console him following the defeat to Manchester City in the final of the UEFA Champions League.

Martinez had a chance to win the game for the Italian giants moments before Rodri netted the only goal as Manchester City were crowned champions of Europe.

After the game, Martinez seemed to have not forgiven himself for the missed opportunity as he broke down in uncontrollable tears.

Fans gather to watch Onana

Hundreds of fans gathered in Obili, Yaoundé to watch Cameroonian goalkeeper Andre Onana in the final of the UEFA Champions League.

Onana inspired Inter Milan to the final of Europe's elite competition after keeping eight clean sheets as the Italian giants returned to the biggest stage for the first time in 13 years.

The Nerazurri faced English side Manchester City for the ultimate prize on Saturday at the Akaturk Stadium in Turkey.
