(Ageing) Eto’o Denied Germany A Win, Forced A Stalemate Instead

Cameroon’s team captain, Samuel Eto’o proved that age has not taken a toll on him yet as he scored the squad’s opening goal against Germany. The pre-World Cup friendly soon ended with an even steven finish.


Once again, Eto’o owned the stage when he netted the friendly’s first goal that almost made the German contingent scrambled and crammed for points.


Prior to the above-mentioned encounter, Eto’o returned to Barcelona to consult with his doctor. The renowned poacher is said to suffer from a knee pain that prevented him from participating in the squad’s training at Austria. There were also speculations that he will most likely grace the sideline during the friendly against Germany.


However, the speculations remained speculations as Eto’o soon returned to Austria, passed the medical check-up and even scored during the friendly.


Eto’o took the limelight when his Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho was secretly caught on tape while making fun of his age. Yet, the talismanic striker showed that he still has that magic on the pitch.


Eto’o is one of the prominent figures in Cameroon’s national squad. Apart from being the team’s leader, he is also the country’s top scorer, with fifty-five (55) international goals under his belt.
