No premiums, no Brazil 2014. This is the scenario that we are seeing this morning in Yaounde. The Indomitable Lions are nowhere to be found at the airport while a special plane is waiting to take them to Brazil for the start of the World Cup. The reason is simple: no bonuses, no departure.
According to reports, Samuel Eto’o and his teammates had to perceive their premiums before going to Brazil as agreed with the federation. Except that the latter has not kept his word. Moreover, a situation that would bring Eto’o to boycott the farewell match yesterday in Yaounde. Cameroon has still won 1-0 over Moldova.
Cameroon mess around with this premium matter since the beginning of their preparations. On May 23, a truce between the two parties allowed players to play the friendly match against Germany (2-2). But obviously, FECAFOOT did not keep its commitments. And this consequently led to the present situation.
At the time of writing this paper, the Indomitable Lions are always at their hotel and wait.
