Cameroon Lion's captain meets with panel to discuss strike
December 13, 2011
The hearing to discuss Lions captain Samuel Eto'o's involvement in the team's strike was held recently, but no decisions have been reached, according to BBC Sport. The Lions refused to continue playing after the Feca Federation withheld payment of bonuses, which caused the cancellation of an exhibition game against the Algerian national team.
No details of the hearing have been made public as of yet, but sports fans can make calls to Cameroon to find out if any new information has been leaked. The strike and subsequent game cancellation were not only a disappointment to fans, but an embarrassment to the Cameroon sporting community and the country, according to the BBC.
"There was no tension because we were among Cameroonians," Sali Dahirou, the head of the panel, said at the hearing, according to the news source. "We are not there to censor - we are there also to give advice to our players, to our federation and to the Ministry of Sports because we want Cameroonian football to go forward."
