FIFA Set To Look Into Cameroon Women Behaviour in England Defeat

Fifa says it is “currently looking into” Cameroon’s behaviour during their World Cup last-16 defeat by England.

It comes after an African football chief said it “reflected badly on African football”.

England’s 3-0 victory on Sunday was marred by Cameroon’s reaction to two video assistant referee decisions and poor challenges on England’s players.

A Fifa spokesperson told BBC Sport: “further updates will be provided in due course”.

Earlier on Monday, Isha Johansen, chair of the Confederation of African Football’s women’s football committee, said she wanted an investigation to be opened.

Johansen, who is also the president of the Sierra Leone Football Association, told BBC Sport it was an “embarrassing situation”.

In a statement, she said: “Whilst remaining proud of our African teams that participated in the Fifa Women’s World Cup, yesterday’s match between England and Cameroon reflected badly, not only on African women’s football but African football on the whole.”
