Fifa has opened disciplinary proceedings against Cameroon following their Women’s World Cup last-16 loss to England in Valenciennes.

World football’s governing body is investigating Cameroon for team misconduct, offensive behaviour and fair play breaches.

Sunday’s game was marred by Cameroon’s reaction to two video assistant referee decisions, and by poor challenges.

“It didn’t feel like football,” said England boss Phil Neville afterwards.

Cameroon coach Alain Djeumfa blamed the referee in his post-match news conference, saying the match was a “miscarriage of justice”.

The Cameroon players staged an on-field protest after England’s second goal, scored by Ellen White, was awarded by VAR, and seemed unwilling for a time to restart the match.

They were also visibly upset when, with the score at 2-0, Ajara Nchout’s goal was ruled out for offside, again by VAR.
