The Cameroon Football Federation, Fecafoot has concluded negotiations for a friendly encounter between Cameroon and the Albanian.

Fecafoot President, Iya Mohammed gave the information yesterday during a meeting attended by the Coach, Jean Paul Akono, Assistant, Martin Ndtoungou Mpile and the Team Manager, Rigobert Song.

The friendly match is billed for November 14 in Switzerland but the town is yet to be known.

The Communication Officer of the Federation, Junior Binyam told BBC Sports that Fecafoot received the confirmation from the Albanian federation yesterday.

Albania, like Cameroon, are almost on the same level in Fifa ranking, 75th and 71 respectively.

Booted out of the African Nations Cup, Cameroon is now looking ahead of their World Cup qualifiers in five months.

Cameroon is in group I with 3 points behind DR Congo with a goal difference and Libya with 4 points.

The friendly match comes within the context of striker, Samuel Eto’o Fils’s denunciation of the emergency manner in which the national team prepares for encounters.

“It is not on the eve of a match that we wake up to say we have a match today; we should play on every Fifa day”.

“We work under pressure and in such a situation there are complications”.

The Minister of Sports, Adoum Garoua also requested the federation to present a training programme for the national team including friendly matches.

The encounter would be helpful for the team of Italian Gianni Biasi that has never been to the World Cup.

Albania in group E in the Europe Zone has 6 points behind Norway, 7 points and Switzerland, 10 points.
