Cameroon squad refuses to board World Cup plane

5:58 am on 9 June 2014

Cameroon's World Cup footballers have refused to board their plane to Brazil in a strike over their payments for the tournament.

The team stayed back at their hotel in Yaounde while reporters camped outside the Cameroon Football Federation headquarters for further information.

Cameroon players had last week threatened to go on strike until they received the payments they were promised, but suspended the strike ahead of their international friendly against Germany last weekend.
