Cameroon will investigate their own players after match-fixing accusation

The claims have been made in a German newspaper...

Some controversial news this morning as officials from the Cameroon FA are to investigate claims that seven of their player were involved in match-fixing during their World Cup campaign in Brazil.

The investigation has come about after a known match fixer from Singapore made the allegation in a German newspaper which led to the Cameroon FA releasing the following statement:

"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."

FIFA did not comment as it didn't want to "compromise any possible investigations" but they did add this: "Speaking generally, the integrity of the game is a top priority for FIFA and as such we take any allegations of match manipulation very seriously."

Cameroon were beaten in their three group games against Mexico, Croatia and Brazil and were involved in one of the craziest games of the tournament when two of their own players attacked each other against Croatia.
