Fifa Lift Cameroon's Ban

Cameroon are on course to reach the next round of qualifying for the World Cup in Brazil after their ban from international competition was lifted by Fifa.

The West African nation was suspended earlier this month because of political interference in the running of football there.

But after the Cameroon Football Federation (Fecafoot) suspended the re-election of its president Iya Mohammed pending an appeal from the national governing body, Fifa opted to lift the ban.

"Fifa passed a decision today, 22 July 2013, to lift the suspension of the Cameroonian Football Association (Fecafoot) given that the conditions previously set have been met,” a statement read.

"The lifting of the suspension means that Fecafoot's clubs, officials and other representatives can immediately resume their activities, which had been interrupted. The same applies for the resumption of the courses and various programmes provided by Fifa, Caf and other member associations.

"Fifa and Caf will continue to closely monitor the situation, particularly in relation to the revision of the Fecafoot statutes."

Cameroon can now resume their World Cup qualifying campaign with their last Group I match against Libya in September.

After Togo were penalised three points for fielding an ineligible player against Cameroon, the Indomitable Lions now lead the group, and all they need is a draw to progress into the final round of playoffs to reach Brazil.
