The Mauritania-Cameroon match has began. The Cameroonian delegation to Nouakchott could realize it. Hugo Broos and his men and other members of the delegation arrived on Wednesday June 1, 2016, late in the afternoon, at the International Airport of the Mauritanian capital. But there was no nothing to accommodate them.
“We are here after 5:30 PM. No member of the Mauritanian Football Federation, nor the Ministry of Sports to welcome us, “says Philippe Boney. The journalist of Voxafrica reported that hosts of Cameroonians have not taken any steps to accommodate their guests.
“The players have spent two hours in a cramped room without anyone ever coming to them. The situation was settled thanks to the presence of Roger Milla. Members of the airport staff wanted to take pictures with the old Lion. We then said they had to first take care of our players. That’s when the Lions could fill their visa requirements before taking the direction of Royal Suites Hotel where they are lodged, “said Philippe.
The rest of the delegation, the Minister of Sport and President of FECAFOOT, had to wait for 4 hours before taking their turn to the direction of their respective places of residence.

The President of FECAFOOT will be personally present at the technical meeting pregame on Thursday to signify his displeasure to the Mauritanians.
We can see that this important match of the 5th day of AFCON 2017 qualifiers has already begun.
