Finke: Eto’o Fit, No Row In Cameroon Camp

Cameroon coach, Volker Finke, has confirmed that his star player, Samuel Eto’o, will be fit to face Mexico tonight.

Eto’o has been directly involved in Cameroon’s last four World Cup goals (three goals, one assist), and has now boosted his side's morale after returning to full training with his teammates.

"I'm very, very happy with the progress made by Stephane Mbia, Jean (Makoun), and Samuel (Eto'o). They're all fit again,” he told ESPN.

“They are full-time with the team now, and it's very, very important for all of us. Why? Because Samuel Eto'o and Stephane M'Bia are like dynamos for the team, they are like engines for us, and we definitely count on them.

“They can make a difference in the game."

Despite the recent row over bonus payments, Finke also confirmed that his side is united and much stronger than at the 2010 World Cup.

"I see my group united, and all the things on the periphery is something that doesn't necessarily need any comment,” Finke added

“Just respect the way things are in Africa, because we found a solution eventually. That's enough for me."

"There's a tradition that the players and the federation and the government work together in a certain way.

"I think you have to respect the difference in culture. This is not something new, not something that needs to be judged from the outside.

"We missed our tournament completely four years ago.

“We are very united. There is a good mixture of experience and youth, so I think the message will go across and play properly."

Cameroon have only won one of their last 13 World Cup games, drawing four and losing eight. They will face Mexico in their World Cup opener at 18:00 tonight.
