Cameroon miss World Cup flight to Brazil

Cameroon miss World Cup flight to Brazil 
Cameroon sensationally missed their scheduled World Cup flight to Brazil after striking over bonus payments.
The Africans were due to fly to Brazil on a 9am flight from Yaounde on Sunday morning, but refused to board until they received promised payment for participating at the World Cup.

National team coach Volker Finke said that talks were underway as players are complaining that their pay packets were not enough.
‘I am sure the problem will be solved and we (will) take off either this afternoon or in the evening,’ Finke told Reuters.
After a crisis meeting between minister Adoum Garoua and Cameroon captain Samuel Eto’o, the players agreed to board a 9:30pm flight to Brazil on Sunday night.
‘There were some adjustments to make,’ said Garouna.
‘You know, the aircraft is often available for some time. If you do not follow this time, departure time is shifted automatically.
‘It was a bit like that. Otherwise there were some misunderstandings, which we solved.
‘And everyone is ready to depart at 21:30 for Brazil. Everything has been clarified. There are no more problems.’
Cameroon’s footballers have previously refused to play due to rows with the football federation over cash, with Eto’o previously landing himself a 15-match ban for his part in strike action.
