Eto'o Retires From International Football

Cameroon's all-time top goal scorer, Samuel Eto'o, has announced his retirement from international football.

The 33-year-old last featured for the The Indomitable Lions at the World Cup in Brazil and recently signed for Everton on a two-year deal.

And the former Barcelona confirmed his retirement via twitter on Wednesday evening.

"I inform you that I am ending  my international career... Thank you to all  Africa, and to all my fans for your unconditional support." he tweeted.

However, prior to the World Cup, Eto'o revealed he could still participate in two tournaments despite his age.

"I am going to go to this World Cup and to the next one when I will be 37. Some did it at 42, so I can still play in two more World Cups," Eto'o told africanfootball.com in May.

Eto'o made 118 appearances for the national side, scoring 56 goals in the process.
