Eto’o Insists 2021 AFCON Will Go Ahead 

Eto’o Insists 2021 AFCON Will Go Ahead 

Newly elected president of the Cameroon Football Federation  (FECAFOOT) Samuel Eto’o has insisted the 2021 AFCON will surely go ahead.

The AFCON will take place in Cameroon from January 9 to February 6 2022.

But there are reports that CAF is considering cancelling this year’s edition due to the rapid increase of the Omicron COVID variant.

But four-time African Player of the Year Eto’o posited he does not see why the AFCON should not go ahead after all the Euro 2020 was also played during the pandemic.

“Why should it be played?” Eto’o told Canal Plus.

“The federation that I represent will strongly defend the competition. The Euros were played in the middle of the pandemic with full stadiums. Why shouldn’t we play? We must be clear on this aspect.”

    Tell them Etoo this stupid Europeans think they know it all. I don’t blame them, because we Africans sell ourselves cheap to them.

    It’s not about omicron… They just don’t want to release players to AFCON bound teams!

    People wey no know oyibo go think say they are people who deal fair… they give you the short end of the stick always! Then they make it look like it was the most logical thing to do.

    Hahahahaha See this dumb fellow @JimmyBall came to post a comment on this page. You don’t have any moral justification to that cos that is Cameroon trying to use Eto’o as their own to make sure Afcon and Cameron succeed. But you and your boys all prefer Nigeria to fail with her own. You must be highing on some cheap weed whenever you want to post on this platform. Lol!

      This your response to @Jimmyball is uncalled for. From your comment, it seems you have beef with him.

      It’s time we stop this everyday insult and attack on ourselves. All our energy should be directed and channeled to the development of football in our country.

      From our little knowledge, I believe KANU Nwankwo and Austin Okocha started playing soccer before Eto’o Samuel but look at what he achieved during his playing time and what he is still achieving.

      Let us use this platform to seek for good management of our football. We are tired of politicians destroying our number one game with their everyday corruption. We should support our else players to come into the NFF and make the desired changes that will push us forward.
