FOOTBALL: Cameroon is to probe claims "seven bad apples" from its playing group were involved in match-fixing at the World Cup.

The country's football federation, FECAFOOT, said yesterday it was investigating allegations of what it described as "fraud" in its three games in Brazil, particularly a 4-0 loss to Croatia.

"We wish to inform the general public that, though not yet contacted by FIFA in regards to this affair, our administration has already instructed its ethics committee to further investigate these accusations," FECAFOOT's interim president, Joseph Owona, said in a statement.

"We are strongly committed to employ all means necessary to resolve this disruptive matter with the shortest delay."
