The regulation provides that if at the place of competition, we discover a case of fraud on the age, the team concerned is disqualified. And to avoid this, we have as a preventive measure, requested from CAF, the assistance of the medical committee to make our players pass this test, " said Belgian Situatala, Sport News Africa.
"We were able to bring the Cameroonian expert who participated in the tests that were conducted. Thirteen players have passed the test. Twelve are still waiting for the confirmation of their results.
