Arsenal's Song fined by Cameroon football federation

Arsenal midfielder Alex Song has been fined by the Cameroon football federation over a row with striker Samuel Eto'o, reports BBC Sport. Eto'o was cleared of indiscipline by Fecafoot while Tottenham's Benoit Assou-Ekotto was reprimanded.

The charges all related to the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Senegal on 4 June and the training camp before the match.

Song had refused shake hands with Eto'o when the pair met before the game and has been fined approximately US$2,000, severely reprimanded and ordered to carry out three days' training with young players within the next year.

Eto'o was accused of missing a training session and showing indiscipline to coach Javier Clemente when the player disputed a substitution during the game.

He has been cleared of the charges.

Assou-Ekotto, who did not attend the hearing, has been given a warning after failing to respond to a call-up from Clemente.
