Paris - Cameroon's players refused to board a plane due to take them to Brazil for the World Cup because of disputes over bonuses, according to a newspaper report Sunday.
The website of French sports daily L'Equipe says the players were due to fly out from Yaounde on Sunday morning but refused because the World Cup bonuses they are being offered are not what they expected.
Cameroon played two recent friendly matches, drawing 2-2 with Germany and beating Moldova 1-0 on Saturday, after which tensions within the squad increased, L'Equipe said.
Cameroon, which had similar disagreements before the 2002 World Cup, is due to play Mexico in Group A on Saturday.
