With less than two months to the kick off of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, none of the African teams to the tournament has accepted the offer by CAF to train for free at its Centre of Excellence in Cameroon.
PANA reports that in February, CAF announced it will cover the costs of training at the CAF Centre of Excellence in Mbankomo, Cameroon.
Africa’s five flag bearers to Brazil are: Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire and Nigeria.
CAF also called on the entire African continent to support the five teams so they can make Africa proud.
Based on the preparation programmes so far released by the teams, indications are that none of them will be training anywhere in Africa for the World Cup, which kicks off on June 12 and runs through July 13.
All the teams have lined up foreign playing tours and training, from where they will head to Brazil for the global tournament. (PANA/NAN)
