Samuel Eto’o wastes no time waiting. Barely that Cameroon has validated its ticket for the 2022 World Cup, the president of the Cameroonian Football Federation (Fecafoot) is already talking about his grand ambitions in Qatar.
“I’m not going to the World Cup to go out in the first round”warned the boss of Fecafoot in the locker room of the Mustapha-Tchaker stadium in Blida. “We will go to Qatar with a different mentality, he promoted. And it starts now. If others can win, why not us?
In their time, Samuel Eto’o, Rigobert Song and Patrick Mboma among others could not equal the record set by the Milla generation by reaching the quarter-finals of a World Cup. But the president of the umbrella body believes in the chances of the band in Karl Toko-Ekambi.
“Our elders showed us the way. But so far, we have only played one World Cup quarter-final. Those who will be in front of you in Qatar play in the same clubs as you, but they are not better than you. We’re going to write a story.” triumphantly concluded Samuel Eto’o.
