Eto'o announces international retirement

by | 27/08/2014  Comments (4)  jump
Samuel Eto'o has called time on his Cameroon international career for the second time.

The 33 year-old decided to withdraw from international competition last year but reversed his decision to help lead his country into this year's World Cup.

Eto'o played in just one of Cameroon's three group stage matches in Brazil and it was announced yesterday that he will no longer be Cameroon's captain.

That decision, coupled with his fresh start at Everton, perhaps prompted the striker to retire from the international game again which leaves him free of potential Africa Cup of Nations duty in January.

He leaves the world stage as his country's record goalscorer with 56 in 118 appearances and Africa's most decorated footballer.

Brilliant - that takes care of the moaners who were whining about us losing him in January !~! Now for some defensive cover and a creative mid fielder. Come on Bobby four more days to the window.

56 goals in 118 matches. Everywhere he has been no matter which time in his life it's been he has basically average a goal every two matches. Hopefully that continues here as well.
