Cameroon authorities vow to probe World Cup 'fraud'

Cameroon's football authorities have confirmed they are looking into claims of "fraud" surrounding the national team's games at the World Cup.

"Recent allegations of fraud around Cameroon's three 2014 World Cup games, especially Cameroon v Croatia, as well the existence of "seven bad apples (in our national team)" do not reflect the values and principles promoted by our administration," FECAFOOT said in a statement.

“We are strongly committed to employ all means necessary to resolve this disruptive matter with the shortest delay,” FECAFOOT's interim president Joseph Owona said.

The allegations stem from reports in German magazine Der Spiegel that a convicted fraudster had accurately predicted Croatia would win 4-0 and that a player would be sent off.
