EXTRA TIME: African legend Samuel Eto’o returns to Cameroon to put smiles on faces
The four-time African Footballer of the Year was a special guest of the world’s football governing body in spreading love to young lads.
Former Cameroon international Samuel returned home to put smiles on young children’s faces by making their dream of seeing one of Africa’s most decorated footballer come true.
In partnership with Fifa Foundation, Eto’o visited young refugees camped in Yaounde due to the civil unrest in the Central African Republic this week.
From hugs, to mingling and to playing football with the kids, the former Barcelona and Chelsea star, unarguably, had a fun-filled return to his home.
On Saturday, the 38-year-old would be rooting for the Indomitable Lions as they chase qualification ticket for 2019 Africa Cup of Nations with a tie against Comoros at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium in Yaounde.
