Etienne Eto’o Pineda, son of Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o has been dropped from the junior Indomitable lions final squad for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil.
Young Eto’o who’s eligible to represent Spain joined up with the Cameroonian squad in order to be included in the team’s final 21 to the World Cup , but Thomas Libiih is not convinced he’s deserved a place in the final squad of 21 players.
Eto’o who is the captain of Mallorca’s youth team was not part of the squad that won the 2019 Africa U17 Cup of Nations in Tanzania .
The omission is a huge disappointment for the Real Mallorca youth team star who was hoping to make the squad in order have the opportunity to step out of his father’s shadow and make a name for himself.
Eto’o was dropped, alongside five other teammates, Aurel Tiki Joel, Jordan Konango, Bryan Djile Nokoue, Enzo Tchato and Dani Barel Fotso.
Cameroon will take Tajikistan, Spain and Argentina in Group E.
