Dutch international William Steve Overtoom of Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo has swapped his nationality from Dutch to Cameroonian to enable him to play for the Indomitable Lions.

According to Cameroon FA Secretary General Sidiki Tombi, the 25-year-old attacking midfielder met with him two weeks ago and finalized the FIFA approval regularities.

Overtoom was born in Bertoua, the Capital of the Eastern Province of Cameroon, to a Dutch father and a Cameroonian mother, before moving to Holland at the age of three with his parents.

He has played at both the Under-17 and U19 levels of the Netherlands national football teams, but has never been called up to the senior team, which qualifies him to choose where to play his international football.
