AFCON 2021: CAF takes responsibility for COVID-19 testing, clears Cameroon of wrongdoing

By Bakah Derick 

The African Football Confederation (CAF) says they have an independent firm incharge of testing participating teams at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Cameroon 2021. The Secreatey General of the continental football governing body repeated their position during a press conference on tuesday 25 January 2022  to address a fatal rush that occurred the previous day at the Olembe Stadium. 
Responding to a question on the accusation of Cameroon for manipulating COVID-19 results against their quarter finals opponent Comoros, Veron Mosengo-Omba explained that after the experiences from the Afrcan Nations Championship CHAN in Cameroon early 2021, CAF decided to hire an independent institution to carry out testing during the ongoing AFCON. He went on to appreciate the government of Cameroon for allowing CAF to do that. 
He presented the profile of the institution saying that they have done testing during the European championship and the Arab cup that just ended. 

Before the AFCON eighth finals fixture between Cameroon and Comoros, 12 members of the latter's delegation tested positive including the coach, two goal keepers and others. 
Speaking during a press conference in Yaounde, Samuel Eto'o Fils, President of the Cameroon Football Federation (FECAFOOT) maintained that Cameroon is not involved in the testing and cannot be accused. According to the four times Africa footballer of the Year award winner, his country has achieved much in football and cannot engage in such petit actions to win. 

The declaration thus clears Cameroon of any wrongdoing during the fixture that saw them unconvincingly beat the Comorians 2-1.
