World Cup 2022 - Cameroon: Indomitable Lions receive participation bonus

World Cup 2022 - Cameroon: Indomitable Lions receive participation bonus

26 players of the Cameroon men’s senior national team currently in Qatar are receiving their World Cup participation bonuses, sportglitz.com confirmed from sources at the country’s sports ministry after the news was initially aired by kick442.

Unlike other years where strike actions were staged by players before participation bonuses could be paid, the FA and Cameroon Government have made sure none of that happens.

The participation bonus for the Indomitable Lions stands at 60 million in francs cfa which is approximately Ninety-four thousand eight hundred ninety-three dollars. Rigobert Song will reportedly receive 120 million as participation bonus, with other members of his coaching staff set to earn higher than the players.

Match bonuses will further be discussed before games according to the stakes. There is a five million francs increase from the last time that the Indomitable Lions took part in a world cup (2014).

FECAFOOT president Samuel Eto’o has opined his desire to keep players abreast and distant the federation from disputes as regards bonuses.

Now that participation bonuses are sorted, the Indomitable Lions have only one mission; to concentrate and pull a surprise in group G.

Switzerland and Brazil are group G fancies according to bookies as the Indomitable Lions have assumed the position of ultimate outsiders, but Rigobert Song and his boys will look to be the dark horses.

The Indomitable Lions start their journey on November 24 against Switzerland. Four days adrift the 5-time African champions face Serbia before putting a cap on the group stage on December 2 against Brazil.
