The Cameroonian Football Federation is determined not to stop there after Jamil Belmady’s allegations against the dam for the 2022 World Cup and the indomitable Lions qualifying against the Fenekes. Fécafoot, via a press release on Monday evening, condemned the words of the Algerian coach and is considering legal proceedings against him.
We in Africa do not joke with the honesty of the referees. The day after Jamel Belmadi’s rift against the Gambian official in charge of the return play-off lost by Algeria against Cameroon (1–0, 1–2, AP) on 29 March, Fakefoot faced the comments of the coach of the Fenekes.
“The Cameroonian Football Federation has expressed its deep concern following the comments made on April 24, 2022 by the coach-selector Mr. Jamel Belmadi of Fenex, Algeria, after the match count for the play-off zone Africa de la Qatar 2022 World. Cup, released Cameroon’s body through a press release signed by President Samuel Ato’o. […] Cameroon reserves the right to bring the matter to the FIFA Ethics Commission in the coming days.
“La Facacute opposes these defamatory allegations”
Even before a possible complaint to FIFA’s disciplinary bodies, FACAFT wanted to clear its honor. No, he did not benefit from favorable mediation during the return dam won by the indomitable lions at Blida. And above all, no, Cameroon did not plot against Algeria.
“Fakeafoot opposes these defamatory allegations and has been repeatedly framed by Algerian football leaders, the body headed by Samuel Ato’o continued in its document published on Monday evening. It regrets the prolonged persistence of this controversy. Qatar’s draw for the 2022 World Cup in Doha on April 1 is likely to provoke incidents similar to verbal aggression by Cameroonian officials.
Belmadi ignites Algeria
At a time when FIFA must still study an appeal filed by the Algerian federation regarding the arbitration of this withdrawal barrage from African territory, Jemel Belmadi unpinned against the Gambian referee during an interview for the FAF’s official media.
“Never again in life will we let two or three guys plot against our country, rumble Jameel Belmadi. We’ll never again see a referee hurting a country. I have to say I didn’t like it all day This referee’s departure at Algiers airport, to see him sipping coffee with a millefeel in a relaxed lounge.
Such statements veer away from the “values of the game” that FECAFOOT advocates intend to advocate, which also recalled the importance of football’s “magnificent indeterminacy”. Cameroon will play the 2022 World Cup while waiting for FIFA’s decision in this matter. In Qatar, the players of Rigobert Song will take on Serbia, Switzerland and especially Brazil.
