Following the saga that occurred between Cameroon and Algeria during the African Nations Cup 2021 hosted by Cameroon. It is worth saying that Algerians did not accept the defeat. Tension is present since the defeat of Algeria against Cameroon.
Since March 2022, Gambian referee Bakary Gassama and Cameroonians have been subject to constant harassment and this is because Algerians have not digested the defeat against Cameroon, depriving them of the 2022 World Cup. This harassment was displayed during the World Cup in Qatar. Racism, bullying. Algerians have jeopardized the safety of Cameroonians.
This will, therefore, encourage Cameroon not to travel to hostile lands for CHAN 2023. The authorities fear for the safety of the Cameroonian delegation due to recent events between the two countries.
