A member of Cameroon’s African Cup of Nations squad is one of 52 players who face exclusion from the country’s main national championship playoffs owing to registration violations.


Wilfried Nathan Douala and 51 other Cameroonian Football Federation players accused of having a “double identity” lied about their age and were suspended, according to French channel RMC and Cameroonian media on Monday.


Only one club, Yong Sports Academy, has had 13 players flagged for suspension or dual identity.


The federation issued the lists of teams participating in the qualifications, which begin on Friday, with the names of 52 players underlined in red for “double identity”.


Douala, who plays for Victoria United FC, is 17, according to his registration.
