Cameroon players refuse to fly to Brazil

The Cameroon squad have refused to fly to Brazil for the World Cup on their flight scheduled on Sunday morning over a bonuses row, according to L'Equipe. The Indomitable Lions Cameroon are due to start their World Cup campaign against Mexico on Friday. Rows over bonuses have been going on between the squad and the football federation for some time, with the players suspending a scheduled strike on May 23 in order to rightfully address the issue. The matter was still left unresolved, and as such Samuel Eto’o and his colleagues have decided to take a stand on Sunday by refusing to board their flight to Brazil. Cameroon find themselves in Group A alongside hosts Brazil, Mexico and Croatia, and this in-fighting will do nothing to aid their quest for glory at the World Cup.
