Former Cameroon international Benjamin Massing, whose crunching tackles at the World Cup in 1990 earned him an infamous reputation, died aged 55 on Sunday, local media reported. The defender’s scything body check on Claudio Caniggia in the opening game against Argentina in Milan was later dubbed the worst tackle in World Cup history. {loadposition myposition}

It reinforced an unwanted reputation of defensive brutality that surrounded Cameroon’s unprecedented run to the quarter-finals of the tournament, going further than any African side had done before. Massing was sent off in the opening game of the 1990 World Cup and sat out the next three, but returned to play against England in the last eight in Naples where he gave away a penalty for a tackle on Gary Lineker as Cameroon were beaten 3-2 in extra time. Massing, who played in France at Creteil, won 34 caps for his country between 1986 and 1992. The cause of his death was not reported.

Ballon d'Or 2017: Cristiano Ronaldo beats Lionel Messi to win fifth award http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/ballon-d-or-2017-cristiano-ronaldo-beats-lionel-messi-to-win-fifth-award http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/ballon-d-or-2017-cristiano-ronaldo-beats-lionel-messi-to-win-fifth-award Ballon d'Or 2017: Cristiano Ronaldo beats Lionel Messi to win fifth award

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi have both won the award five times on the last 10 occasions

Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo beat Barcelona's Lionel Messi to win the Ballon d'Or award for the fifth time - and the second year in a row.

Victory took the 32-year-old Portugal international level with 30-year-old Argentine Messi, who won the most recent of his five awards in 2015.

Messi's ex-Barcelona team-mate Neymar, now at Paris St-Germain, was third.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Last season, Ronaldo helped Real Madrid win the Champions League and their first La Liga title since 2012.

Ronaldo added the 2017 Ballon d'Or to those he won in 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2016, and Messi is the only other recipient of the award since 2009.

"This is something I look forward to every year," he said, after receiving the award on the Eiffel Tower in Paris.

"Thanks to my Real Madrid team-mates. And I want to thank the rest of the people who helped me reach this level."

The 2016-17 campaign was a stellar season for the former Manchester United player.

After helping Portugal win Euro 2016, he scored 42 goals for Real in all competitions as they won their 33rd La Liga title and 12th European Cup.

He scored twice in a 4-1 Champions League final win over Juventus and netted 25 times in 29 league games as Los Blancos finished three points ahead of Barcelona.

CHAN 2018: CAF to use Video Assistant Referees http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/chan-2018-caf-to-use-video-assistant-referees http://cameroon-concord.com/list-player/sports/chan-2018-caf-to-use-video-assistant-referees CHAN 2018: CAF to use Video Assistant Referees

The Confederation of African Football has decided to follow the footsteps of FIFA by introducing the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) as from the quarter finals of the CHAN in 2018.

{loadposition myposition}

 

The CAF referees committee took the decision after meeting on Monday in Cairo Egypt to figure out how it could look like if the Video assistant referee was to be used in African football.

Starting from the Quarter finals of the African football championship in Morocco 2018, no action of the game will go unnoticed, given that the video assistant referee will be there to check any errors.

The CAF officials say they intend to reduce the mistakes that have always been made in African football and which went unnoticed, either on the part of the referee or the players.

The head of the Normalisation committee Dieudonne Happi, is said to be having intentions of asking for an extension of the reign of his committee.

{loadposition myposition}

 

Sources from within the committee explained that, they have been facing many difficulties and might need more time to completely carry out the tasks that were bestowed on them, camer-sports.be reports.

Happi is noted to have said when he was taking charge as head of the committee that “there is no need for prolongation”, but now, the story might be turned around.

Created on 8 September 2017, they had as main mission after six months, to organise elections of the Cameroon Football federation.

The normalisation committee is left with just three months as their existence expires on 28 February 2018. Before this dateline, the Elections of FECAFOOT, should have been set.

Cameroon Rugby Federation has been suspended by Africa Rugby Federation and World Rugby, according to media reports.

{loadposition myposition}

The suspension was hammered on Tuesday night.

This comes after a prolonged row within the executive department of the federation.

The vice-president and the secretary general are reportedly at loggerheads.

CRTV reports that the vice-president has accused the secretary of causing chaos within the federation. On the other hand, the secretary blames the vice president for what he calls mismanagement within the structure.

The vice president had been running the federation while the president was away.

Sports bodies in Cameroon are used to controversy.

Recently the football managing body FECAFOOT was at the heart of a power tussle which prompted international intervention.
