African champions Cameroon have fired coach Hugo Broos two months shy of his two-year contract expiring.
The Belgian surprisingly led the Indomitable Lions to AFCON success earlier this year in Gabon.
However, a poor showing at the Confederation Cup in Russia and the nation's failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup led to his exit.
"Mr Broos could not lead Cameroon to the 2018 World Cup in Russia," read part of a statement, which also listed Broos's unwillingness to live in Cameroon and squad unrest as precipitating his dismissal.
