Eto’o who would later make 118 caps for Cameroon, the second most appearances by any Cameroonian international, only bettered by Rigobert Song’s 137.
The Striker also scored 56 international goals, the record highest goals scored by any Cameroonian for the Indomitable Lions.
“The most memorable goal I scored in my career was the goal against Brazil at the Confederation Cup,” he told brila.net.
