Samuel Eto'o says Cameroon won't be running scared in Brazil
Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o insists that his country won't be running scared of hosts Brazil when they face off in Group A of the impending World Cup and, if anything, a strong African presence will suit conditions in South America.
The 33 year-old serial trophy winner drew on his experiences of winning Olympic Gold back in 2000: "In my career, we played against Brazil before. We beat the Brazilians in the 2000 Olympics in Sydney. There was a certain Ronaldinho on the team and many others. Cameroon is not scared."
The Indomitable Lions will also face Croatia and Mexico in the opening stages and Eto'o believes his side can make it into the knockout stages of the tournament: "I say there is reason to believe in our qualities."
This will likely be the last chance for the former Barcelona man to play at the highest level internationally, although he claims to still want to play for a top club side next term: "I'll continue at a high level. I'll continue to play in the Champions League."
