Cameroon resolve bonus row

Having played out a 2-2 draw with Germany in a pre-World Cup friendly on Sunday, Cameroon head coach Volker Finke believes their opponents should be favourites to triumph in Brazil.

Cameroon coach Volker Finke has rubbished reports his side were going to pull out of the World Cup in a row over bonus payments by saying they will be in Brazil in time to face Mexico on June 13.

A report in France's L'Equipe on Sunday claimed the Cameroon players had refused to board the plane due to take them to Brazil since no agreement had been reached with the Cameroonian Football Association over the level of bonuses to be paid.

However, Finke says that an agreement has now been struck and the team will be flying out to Brazil on Sunday.

"It's just one of those things that these agreements can take longer in Africa," Finke, a former coach of Bundesliga side Freiburg, told Germany's Sport1.

"That agreement was struck this morning and now we can fly to Brazil today. Our fans will be pleased -- Cameroon will of course be participating in the World Cup.

"The agreement is there and there's no point making such a big fuss out of the whole thing. It's really not as big as it has been made out to be in recent days.''

Cameroon beat Moldova 1-0 in their final warm-up game on Saturday. After facing Mexico, they will also come up against Croatia and hosts Brazil in Group A.
