A stir that pushed the journalist Anthony Pla to govern "For the moment these are only rumors that come out everywhere … let's wait for the answers of the bodies cited before drawing (FIFA, editor's note: conclusions. A lot of things don't fit into what came out today (…) I asked FIFA the question and I expect an answer tomorrow," he said.
According to the journalist, CAF unveiled on December 5, 2021 the list of 219 people who will make up the official delegation at the next CAN in Cameroon, despite the delays and difficulties that the organization may experience.

"I will be really sad if we took the CAN away from Cameroon and Africa without forgetting the incredible economic consequences that the country could experience and when we talk about economic consequences, it is always the people who pick up first what would be a disaster. I don't want to see people suffer even more."
