Cameroon delay naming Le Guen replacement

YAOUNDE - Cameroon have delayed naming a replacement for coach Paul Le Guen who stepped down after the African nation's World Cup first round exit in June.

"During the last three weeks a Cameroon FA (FECAFOOT) delegation was in Europe to scout for potential candidates for the job while another team was set up here to consider applications from within the country," a FECAFOOT official told Reuters.

"The two submitted the results of their findings last week and FECAFOOT came out with a shortlist which it sent to the government for a final choice as is the tradition. But the authorities delayed the appointment which we expected before the Poland friendly for yet unknown reasons."

Cameroon play Poland in a friendly on Wednesday. Le Guen's assistant and former international goalkeeper Jacques Songo'o will take charge of the side for the match in Szczecin.
