Eto'o To Quit On Cameroon?

The coach of the Cameroon national team, Volker Finke, has suggested that Samuel Eto’o has retired from international football.

It is believed that the new Chelsea striker told his fellow Indomitable Lions that he would be hanging up his international boots, following their weekend win over Libya which saw them reach the final qualifying round for next year’s World Cup in Brazil.

32-year-old Eto’o has a love-hate relationship with the Cameroon national team, for whom he has scored 55 goals in 122 matches since his senior debut as 15-year-old in 1997.

And Volker has now hinted that the striker has opted out of playing for his country, just as it seems likely that they will be bound for Brazil in 2014.

"Samuel Eto'o is a great player and it is better that he should be the one to explain things," he said.

"He is the only one who can explain why he took the decision. 

"Of course, he has given a lot to football in general and for Cameroonian football in particular. I cannot say more than this because he is the only one to explain this."
