Following their Women’s World Cup last-16 loss to England in Valenciennes, football’s governing body, Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has opened disciplinary proceedings against Cameroon.
Speaking after Sunday’s game, England boss Phil Neville said the match “didn’t feel like football”.
FIFA’s now investigating Cameroon for team misconduct, offensive behavior and fair play breaches.
Sunday’s game was marred by Cameroon’s reaction to two video assistant referee decisions, and by poor challenges.
Cameroon coach Alain Djeumfa blamed the referee in his post-match news conference, saying the match was a “miscarriage of justice”.
The Cameroon players staged an on-field protest after England’s second goal, scored by Ellen White, was awarded by VAR, and seemed unwilling for a time to restart the match.
They were also visibly upset when, with the score at 2-0, Ajara Nchout’s goal was ruled out for offside, again by VAR.
