It came after an African football chief said it “reflected badly on African football”. England’s 3-0 victory on Sunday was damaged by Cameroon’s reaction to two video assistant referee decisions and on the poor challenges on England’s players.
One of Fifa’s spokesperson told BBC Sport: “further details and update will be provided in due course”
Earlier on Monday, Isha Johansen, chair of the Confederation of African Football’s women’s football committee, said she wanted an investigation to be carried out.
Johansen, who is also the president of the Sierra Leone Football Association, told BBC Sport it was so “embarrassing”
According to her: “While at the same remaining proud of our African teams that participated in the Fifa Women’s World Cup, yesterday’s match between England and Cameroon reflected so badly, not only on our African women’s football but African football on the whole.
It is a serious issue which will be addressed and dealt with at the appropriate levels of governance.”
There was an on-pitch protest by Cameroon’s players after England’s scored the second goal by Ellen White, which was awarded by VAR.
Cameroon were also visibly upset when, with the score at 2-0, Ajara Nchout’s goal was ruled out for offside by VAR.
They were so fortunate to finish the game with 11 players on the pitch after Yvonne Leuko was booked for an apparent elbow on England winger Nikita Parris, Augustine Ejangue spat on Toni Duggan and Alexandra Takounda was shown a yellow card for a late challenge on captain Steph Houghton in the stoppage time.
Johansen also told BBC Sport: Clearly when something happens like what happened yesterday, the disappointment. that we saw on the pitch, we as Africans felt for Cameroon as a family, as one.
We take the collective blame, but at the same time, without sounding like we are condoning what happened, I think it’s all about now actually understanding why it really happened.
These are some of the issues that I think CAF has got to address and will address, clearly so we can avoid the same mistakes happening.
Speaking after the match, England boss Phil Neville said he was “ashamed” by Cameroon’s behaviour, adding it “didn’t feel like football”.
But Cameroon coach Alain Djeumfa blamed the referee in his post-match news conference, saying the match was a “miscarriage of justice.
