The Cameroon FA officials have launched an investigation into match fixing scandals in which seven Indomitable Lions players are alleged to have been involved in the World Cup.
Cameroon became the first nation to exit the event at Brazil after losing all their group games (1-0 Vs Mexico, 4-0 Vs Croatia and 5-1 Vs Brazil) but reports by a German newspaper in which a convicted match fixer from Singapore says this.
The 1990 World Cup quarter-finalists had Alex Song red carded for elbowing Mario Mandzukic off the ball in the 4-0 loss to Croatia while team-mates Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Benjamin Moukandjo clashed late on in the game.
A statement from Cameroon’s FA as quoted by BBC Sport 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.”
It should be noted that match fixers use all means of match fixing including paying off players to receive bookings, red cards and cause penalties.
