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.
