Cameroon’s Men’s Amputee football team has been excluded from this year’s African Nations Cup in amputee football, which starts today in Cairo Egypt.

The Amputee Football Federation informed CNA that their paperwork was not processed by the Ministry of Sports, preventing the team from traveling to Egypt for the event.

Aside from Cameroon three other teams, including Rwanda and Senegal, were unable to travel to
