Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC recently announced that the club had completed the transfer of Cameroonian goalkeeper Moise Pouty and defender Pascal Eboussi.

Switchbacks head coach, Steve Trittschuh speaking on the new recruits said the duo were brought in to solidify the team and add to the quality of players the roster. “Both Moise and Pascal are young and exciting players. “We expect big things from both of them.”

Pouaty, 21, who spent time in Belgium training with the Cameroon national team, join the Switchbacks after his call up to the Cameroon National Team, which faced Tunisia on March 24 in an international display. While Eboussi, 19, join the Switchbacks as one of Cameroon’s most exciting young centre back prospects, and he is aiming to continue developing his talent throughout the season.

Since their recruitment with Colorado Springs Switchbacks, many media reports have asserted that the Cameroon soccer players are adjusting to a new life in U.S.

Speaking on their new climate and team, Pouty said there’s a lot of differences between Cameroon and America. “The big difference is in the infrastructure and how people here have money to spend. In Cameroon, (soccer) is No. 1. It’s like a religion.” “When they called me here I was excited,” Pouaty said. “I came here to work. I like this town and the team.”

The duo skills’ became evident once Pouaty took over at goalkeeper after his call-up to the national team ended.  Coach Steve Trittschuh opined that both have settled in although Eboussi needs to adjust to the amount of physical play allowed in the USL. He is suspended for the next two games because of last Saturday’s red card.

“Their relatively rapid adjustment to life here and their potential as players have made them a welcome addition to the sixth-place Switchbacks (2-2-3),”  the coach said.

“They’re both just going to keep getting better,” Trittschuh said. “We’re just happy to have them here so we can help them move up. They are both young men with very bright futures.”
