Étienne Eto’o Pineda “I cried like a baby, it was a dream come true to play for my national team and to sing the Anthem”.
Such is the feeling the 18-year old U-20 lions striker expressed after wearing the national shirt.
Born in Spain to Mariam Pineda and living football legend Samuel Eto’o in 2002, Étienne made his debut for Cameroon in the unfolding U-20 nations cup taking place in Mauritania. Prior to Cameroon’s Elimination in the Quater-finals Thursday against the black Satellites of Ghana 4:2 on penalties shootout, Étienne Eto’o had already marked the competition with two goals and two assists to his credit.
The lad who intends to follow in dads footsteps thinks he owes it all to fatherland for the opportunity to play with complete new faces in the likes of John Bosco, Mila, Tchato all sons of ex-footballers and a host of others.
Étienne Eto’o settled and geld so well with his team mate that Cameroonians are hopeful their development is tracked in a bid to assure continuity.
