Cameroon suspends 62 players for AGE FRAUD

The official list was released by FECAFOOT this weekend, and includes 17-year-old Wilfried Nathan Douala who was a surprise inclusion in Rigobert Song’s squad for the tournament in the Ivory Coast.

According to FECAFOOT, the Victoria United skipper lied about his age, and therefore the player has been disqualified from appearing in the Elite League’s play-off games.

Douala’s real age hasn’t been disclosed, but he joins 61 other players who have also been suspended for concealing their ages.

The move comes as FECAFOOT aim to lessen the administrative issues previously faced during and after the end of the Cameroonian football season.
