Cameroon in World Cup match fixing probe

An investigation is to be opened by the Cameroonian football federation following allegations of corruption at the tournament in Brazil, reports The Telegraph.

The strongest suspicions surround Cameroon’s disastrous second match, a humiliating 4-0 reverse to Croatia. The embarrassing scoreline was compounded by a senseless red card for Barcelona’s Alex Song and a fight between team mates Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Benjamin Moukandjo.


However, there are now suggestions that this may have been more than just an unfortunate off night for the Indomitable Lions following the revelation that a well-known match fixer had correctly predicted the outcome to a German sports magazine.


Wilson Raj Perumal, who has previously been convicted of fraud and match fixing amongst other crimes, is reported to have correctly predicted that the game would finish 4-0 and that there would be a red card.


The Cameroon football federation confirmed in a statement that while Fifa have not yet been in contact regarding the allegations, they have opened their own investigation in an admirably proactive move. They expressed hopes of a speedy resolution, saying: "We are strongly committed to employ all means necessary to resolve this disruptive matter in the shortest delays.”


Defending its past record, the federation’s statement went on to say: "We wish to reinstate that in fifty-five (55) years of existence, Fecafoot has never been sanctioned for, involved in, or even linked to match fixing or any fraud of any kind."


These allegations are just the latest problem to blight what has been a forgettable month for Cameroon both on and off the field.
