As part of FECAFOOT’s efforts to be certain about the eligibility of the players traveling to Morocco for the upcoming Under-17 African cup of Nations, players of the Under-17 Lions of Cameroon have performed a second MRI scan at the CAF accredited La Cathedrale Center in Yaoundé-Cameroon.
All 25 players Cameroon has retained for the tournament were cleared by the renowned medical facility with their fusion ranging from stage one to stage three for most of cases.
Cameroon under the guidance of team doctor Elias Matip has been hyper strict in the players selection process. On recommendation of the Cameroon Football Federation, even players of fusion five who are eligible per FIFA standards were not picked by coach Anicet Mbarga Foe as the maximum fusion was set at fusion four.
The central African nation therefore carries its foot soldiers to the North African Kingdom of Morocco in a level-headed situation, certain that the CAF MRI test will be a mare formality.
The defending champions will arrive Morocco with one of the youngest team in the history of the tournament as there was even a 13-year old that was taken out of the squad in the last minute of the players registration process because he was younger than the minimum age range.
Famous football academies across the country like the Brasserie Football Academy and the national football Academy contributed eleven of the players traveling to Casablanca-Morocco in the wee hours of Monday, March 8.
Cameroon enter their 8th AFCON tournament as defending champions and are in group C alongside Mali, Senegal and South Africa.
The Lions open their tournament on March 15th against Senegal before confronting South Africa three days later and climax group stage activities against Mali on March 21 all in Casablanca.
