FIFA To Open Disciplinary Proceedings Against Cameroon

Emeka Nnaike

FIFA have initiated disciplinary investigations against Cameroon following their controversial 3-0 loss to England in the FIFA Women’s World Cup on Sunday.

In a match marred by VAR controversy, there was widespread condemnation for what was seen as ‘unsportsmanlike’ conduct by the Cameroonian team.

The Indomitable Lionesses refused to restart play twice after England goals, with further replays showing a Cameroonian player pushing the referee, and another spitting at an England player.

The FIFA Statement read: “Following the Round of 16 match between Cameroon and England on the 23 June at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019, we can confirm that proceedings have now been opened by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee against the Cameroonian Football Association for alleged breaches related to article 52 (team misconduct) and article 57 (offensive behaviour and fair play) of the FIFA Disciplinary Code.

“As proceedings are now ongoing, please understand that no further comment can be made at this stage. Further updates will be provided in due course.”
