Cameroon investigate match-fixing

01 July 2014, 21:47

Yaoundé - Cameroon officials are set to investigate claims that seven of their 2014 World Cup squad members were involved in match-fixing in Brazil.

The Indomitable Lions have been accused of "fraud" during their three Group A matches, which all ended in defeat for the African side as their South American adventure came to an end at the first round.

Besides being unable to secure any sort of positive result in Brazil, indiscipline also plagued the Cameroon side, most notably against Croatia when Alex Song was sent off for hitting out at Mario Mandzukic, while Benoit Assou-Ekotto followed suit later in the game after head-butting team-mate Benjamin Moukandjo.

A statement from Cameroon's FA read: "Recent allegations of fraud around Cameroon's 2014 FIFA World Cup three preliminary games, especially Cameroon versus Croatia, as well of the 'existence of seven bad apples [in our national team]' do not reflect the values and principles promoted by our administration, in line with FIFA's code of conduct and the ethics of our nation.

"We are strongly committed to employ all means necessary to resolve this disruptive matter in the shortest delays."
