Call him the most decorated African player of all time and YES you will be just like him if only you would love to be a footballer. LOL.

As a member of the Cameroon national team, Eto’o was a member of the squad that won the 2000 Olympic tournament. He participated in six Africa Cup of Nations with his team picking up the ultimate twice during his playing days for the Cameroonian national team.
Eto’o remains African all-time leading scorer in the history of the Africa Cup of Nations with 18 goals.
