The former Indomitable Lions star played for some of Europe's biggest clubs, including Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea.

Eto'o has won the Champions League on two ocassions with the Catalan giants, so it was no surprise to see two of his former Barcelona teammates included in his ideal front-three.

The former Inter striker also opened up about his favourite career goal, which he scored for the national side at the FIFA Confederations Cup.

"My favourite goal was the one I scored against Brazil in the Confederations Cup," Eto'o said in an interview with AS.

"It was the first time my mother had come to see a game at the stadium and I was able to say, “Thanks, Mum,” with a message written on a T-shirt."

"As for the best attacking trio, it’s very difficult to choose, but I’d go for Messi, Ronaldinho and Ronaldo 'O Fenômeno',"  he added.
