Samuel Eto’o replaced as Cameroon national team captain
Cameroon forward, Samuel Eto’o has been dropped as theCameroon’s national captain and his teammate, Stephane Mbia, was asked to permanently replace his position.
The Cameroon Football Federation announced the change on Tuesday, saying that the decision to drop Eto’o was made by the Cameroon sports ministry.
Striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Vincent Aboubakar have been chosen as Cameroon’s vice captains.
Cameroon coach Volker Finke, had already left Eto’o out of his 25-man team for the final games of the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers. This, according to supersport.com, could cause Eto’o to announce his international retirement.
During the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, Cameroon lost all three of their games under the leadership of Eto’o, who had only participated in the opening game, due to injury.
A spokesman of the Cameroon sports ministry has said that the move will be a good improvement for the team in the upcoming games for the 2015 African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
