Cameroon protest against the choice of March officials

The Referees Commission of African Football Confederation, CAF, has replaced the South African trio initially assigned to handle the Senegal vs. Cameroon March 26th game in Dakar.
The decision to replace the men was made after the Cameroon Football Federation, FECAFOOT protested.

The Cameroon Football Federation alleges that the officials from South Africa were biased against Cameroon during the Indomitable Lions campaign against Mauritius.

 The African Football Federation has assigned a Tunisian trio to handle the match which football analysts qualify as crucial.

In the meantime, Cameroonians  have been reacting to the choice of the 23 players expected begin camping in Lisbon, Portugal next Tuesday ahead of their 2012 African Cup of nations duel with Senegal.

The list published by head coach, Javier Clemente has been criticised for excluding household names in Cameroonian football like Achille Emana, Alexandre Song, Joel Matip, Jean II Makoun and Benoit Assou Ekoto.

However, the Coach has given the opportunity for the public to appreciate the performance of some home based players including Ndame Ndame, Abouna Ndzana and Joseph Momasso.
