Eto’o, who is also the President of the Cameroonian Football Federation (FECAFOOT) took to his Twitter handle to motivate the Indomitable Lions to go all the way and win the World Cup in Qatar.

“During last week’s General Assembly, we came together to discuss the road ahead for Cameroonian football. We must seize every opportunity, nationally and internationally. We’ve made it to the World Cup, not to play extras but to dominate all 7 matches and bring home the trophy,” Eto’o, a former Indomitable Lions captain tweeted.

Eto’o, a four-time African Footballer of The Year, represented Cameroon at four FIFA World Cup finals; in 1998, 2002, 2010, and 2014. At the age of 17 years and three months, he was the youngest player at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France alongside England’s Michael Owen.

Cameroon have advanced from the Group Stage in the World Cup only once, precisely at the Italia’90 edition. It was in the same edition that they reached the quarter-finals.

Senegal, at Korea-Japan 2002 and Ghana at South Africa 2010, are the two other African nations that have reached the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup.

Indomitable Lions are in Group G of Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup alongside Brazil, Serbia, and Switzerland.

      Tall dream Mr Eto’o. You hosted Afcon but could not win. Yet you want to win world cup? Are you even sure of getting out of you group to the knock out stage with Brazil and Serbia looming in your group?

        And what is BAD about DREAMING TALL?

        You see that is the difference between an FA led by an EX FOOTBALLER who has been there and done that and FEARS no OPPONENT whether it is a TEAM that has 2 of LIONEL MESSI in them to an FA led by a FORMER FISHERMAN in WARRI
