Cameroon cancels league games over lack of money



Cameroon, the country due to host the Africa Cup of Nations next year, has suspended the final matches of its top two professional leagues due to lack of funds.

The league managers said that the games due to be played in the coming days would now be postponed until further notice.

Cameroon blazed a trail for African football in 1990 when it became the first country from sub-Saharan Africa to reach the quarter-finals of a World Cup.

But recently the football league has complained repeatedly about lack of funding.
