Yaoundé, Cameroon | Xinhua | Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) President Samuel Eto’o mentioned on Monday that Cameroon is appalled by allegations of match-fixing by Algerian soccer authorities.

Algerian soccer coach Djamel Belmadi had advised Algerian TV that Cameroon’s 2022 World Cup playoff win over Algeria “was a conspiracy between two or three persons”.

Belmadi argued that Algeria’s residence defeat this March in Blida was distorted by the referee’s efficiency.

“FECAFOOT disputes these defamatory allegations instilled in an allusive way and formulated in a repetitive way by the Algerian football leaders. Cameroon reserves the right to bring the matter before the FIFA Ethics Committee in the coming days,” Eto’o mentioned in a press release on Monday night time.

“FECAFOOT urges Algerian football leaders to use legal means to exercise their recognized rights,” he added.
