Cameroon continues hide-and-seek

Cameroon continues hide-and-seek with Nigeria

Posted: 26 August 2011 Time: 7:55 pm

The delegation of Cameroon to Saturday's London 2012 Olympic Games qualifying match against Nigeria has been up to one game or the other since arriving in the country midnight on Wednesday. 

FECAFOOT sent a one-woman advance party, who arrived in the country on Tuesday, but instead of linking up with the Nigeria Football Federation, she went straight to the High Commission of Cameroon in Abuja and kept the NFF in the dark on her presence in the capital.   While NFF officials were making assiduous efforts to find out when the Cameroonian contingent would arrive in Nigeria, for the purpose of giving good reception to our neighbours to the east, the woman, who is chairperson of the Women's Football Committee of FECAFOOT, was busy plotting how to hide the team from everyone.   NFF top shots had to be woken up at midnight when the Cameroonian delegation landed in Lagos with a team doctor who has a French passport and therefore required entry visa into Nigeria.   While the NFF made accommodation arrangements at Chida International Hotel, the one-woman advance party spirited the contingent away to another place, and she made no apologies for this irregular behaviour at Friday's pre-match meeting.   It is now resolved that despite making arrangements well ahead and paying for un-used accommodation and food, the NFF would now have to take care of its own delegation during the return leg in Cameroon on October 22. 

"We did everything to ensure the comfort of our brothers and sisters from Cameroon, but unfortunately, they had their own plans. There is nothing we can do other than to prepare for the worst when we travel to Yaounde in October," said NFF's Director of Competitions, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi.

Ha Ha Ha This story does not make sense. What is wrong is Cameroon sent a one-woman advance team to Nigeria, noting the hostile and pitiable manner Nigerians treat foreign teams. A good example was Ghana. I am sure Cameroonians know about this. It is their choice to inform Nigeria Nigeria or not. And why did the Nigerian official say they can only expect a hostile reception in Cameroon during the second leg, if indeed they have nothing to fear? The story is not complete. The whole world is getting to know about the rather terrible Nigerian attitude to foreign teams playing in Nigeria! Thank God they will also travel to those countries!

@ Gil, please be constructive with your reasoning. I know u have brain in ur head but the question is "do u ever use it"? Maybe it would be wise for me to remind you that Argentina also played a friendly game in Nigeria which they were walloped by the super eagles. Did the Argies complain of any hostility? Guy wake up abeg.

Dominic Adiyiah says going to AC Milan was a mistake
Adiyiah: Going to AC Milan was a mistake
Posted: 2011-08-22 19:13

Dominic Adiyiah has admitted he made a mistake in joining Italian Serie A side AC Milan after his exploits at the 2009 World Youth Championships.

The Ghana striker scored eight goals as he emerged top scorer and best player from the tournament before joining Milan in a high profile transfer.

But two years after his eye catching performances in Egypt, he has suffered done very little at club level. He is yet to play an official game for Milan and has struggled to impress on loan at Reggina and Partizan Belgrade.

He has hit what many consider an all time low with his move to Turkey division two side Karyisaka where he is confident he can right the wrongs of the last two years.

"For me I must say it was a big mistake," he told the weekly television program OtiAdjei Report reference to the Milan move.

"But as a youngster when a big team like Milan needs you cannot say no. However when you get there and there is no room for you, that is when you have to decide I need to go somewhere and do the right thing and come back."

@Socerates, Dominic Adiyiah is an old man but unfortunately people only critize Nigeria as using over aged players in age-grade competitions. Many countries are guilty of this.

@luise-hero, yes, Enyimba should have won the match if they have been more aggressive but then a draw is still okay than a defeat.
