Algerian Youtuber Sadouni SM will file a complaint

The legend of African football, whose selection was eliminated from the World Cup on Friday, is, according to the DZ Foot site, taken from Sadouni SM.

This Algerian YouTuber announces in a video that he has decided to file a complaint against Samuel Eto'o with the local police, not only for having hit him, but also for having broken his camera.

According to DZ Foot, Sadouni SM would have questioned the president of the Cameroonian Federation on Bakary Gassama, the controversial referee of the famous barrage for the Algeria-Cameroon World Cup (1-2) of March 29, which had seen the Indomitable Lions qualify at the last second thanks to a Karl Toko Ekambi goal.

A subject obviously still very sensitive between the two selections, while Bakary Gassama refereed the match Qatar - Netherlands last week.
