Yaounde - Striking Cameroon players will be offered an additional performance-related bonus at the Africa Cup of Nations, Sports Minister Narcisse Mouelle Kombi said on Friday.

The players on Thursday refused to board a plane bound for the continent's showpiece biennial tournament in Egypt.

After that refusal, Kombi presided over an overnight meeting with some senior players and their representatives after which the Cameroonian football federation (Fecafoot) agreed an additional bonus of €7 600 per player.

Each player had already received a payment of €30 489 from the government.

"We hope that the players who asked to be heard will accept to set off in the day," a source close to the sports ministry told .

Cameroon kick off their campaign against Guinea-Bissau on Tuesday, with Ghana and Benin making up Group F.
