Now, French newspaper L’Equipe is reporting Eto’o has retired from international duty for “personal reasons.”
Cameroon defeated Libya 1-0 Sunday to advance to the knockout stage of Africa’s World Cup qualifying. Eto’o was substituted out of the match in the 60th minute, replaced by Jacques Zoua.
Whatever the case may be, it would seem Cameroon will be without their legendary striker and captain for their knockout stage match in October.
Eto’o was brought in by Jose Mourinho from Anzhi Makhachkala on a free transfer.
The 32-year-old won a famous treble with Internazionale, and played for five years at Barcelona.
