The head of women’s soccer in Africa wants Cameroon to face punishment for the conduct of players in their Women’s World Cup loss to England. The Cameroon team rebelled against three officiating decisions in a 3-0 loss to England in the round of 16 on Sunday.
After the game, Cameroon manager Alain Djeumfa accused officials of a “miscarriage of justice.” According to the official from Sierra Leone, the CAF should take action even if FIFA doesn’t pursue a case against the Cameroon team.
However, there was at least one high-profile advocate of their behavior: the head of the FIFA administration. FIFA secretary general Fatma Samoura tweeted that the Cameroon players “inspired many young girls,” with “passionate and talented play on the field that made your fans proud and your country is proud of you.”
