The 16 abandoned legends of Nigerian football that were in Cameroon for the remake of the 2000 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) match that pitted Nigeria to Cameroon have arrived Lagos this evening from Douala with long faces.
According to authoritative information that reached out Editoral desk this Saturday, December 2, Peter Rufai and 15 others left Douala in a disgruntled state after their agreed $100 000 dollars perdiem for the game that was initiated to spice.
Samuel Eto’o Fils, Bernard Tchountang, Robert Ndip Tambe scored for Cameroon while Julius Aghahowa got Nigeria’s goal in the indomitable Lions’ 3-1 win in the remake of the AFCON final which Cameroon won on post-match penalties after the 2-2 draw.
The game provided the desired spectacle was delivered but unfortunately the players were not paid as expected, kick442.com gathered.
We can’t independently state the situation of the Cameroon players vis-a-vis payments but we understand a number of them sympathized with their peers from Nigeria, with Samuel Eto’o going as far as promising he will ensure the organizers pay their cash.
