Samuel Eto'o is likely to face a spell on the Indomitable Lions sidelines following this week's disciplinary hearing


The Cameroonian Football Federation's (FECAFOOT) disciplinary committee will announce Samuel Eto'o's sanction for his role as captain in a player's strike on Friday, reports the BBC.

The strike followed a row over bonuses after a tournament in Morocco in November and led to the cancellation of a friendly against Algeria.

FECAFOOT has dismissed reports he will get a seven-match ban as "speculation."

Should he receive any punishment, Eto'o will then have 14 days to appeal.

If he were to get a lengthy ban, he could miss the Indomitable Lions' opening games in qualifying for both the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and 2014 World Cup.

Vice-captain, Enoh Eyong is also awaiting to hear the outcome of the disciplinary hearing held earlier this week.

Tottenam Hotspur defender, Benoit Assou Ekotto could also face punishment after he failed to join up with the squad for the games in Morocco and Algeria.

Cameroon begins their campaign for the 2013 Nations Cup finals in South Africa against Guinea Bissau on February 29 and June 17.

In between the Nations Cup games the Indomitable Lions start their quest to reach the World Cup in Brazil in 2014 with a match against DR Congo.

  • our captain is a big fool because ever since he handled the ban, no success has he brought to the country.
