Cameroon boss hints at Eto'o international retirement

The new Chelsea recruit could be set to turn his focus solely to the Blues after his national team boss suggested that the 32-year-old may hang up his international boots
Samuel Eto'o could be set to announce his immediate retirement from international football according to Cameroon coach Volker Finke.

The 32-year-old, who has 112 caps for his country, was substituted after an hour with a suspected hamstring injury in Cameroon's 1-0 victory over Libya on Sunday, a result which sealed their place in the next stage of World Cup 2014 qualifying.

According to L'Equipe, Eto'o is reported to have told his team-mates after the game on Sunday that it was to be his last in a Cameroon shirt, but his coach refused to confirm the reports, merely hinting at the striker's impending retirement.

"Samuel Eto'o is a great player and it is better that he should be the one to explain things," Finke told reporters. "He is the only one who can explain why he took the decision.

"Of course, he has given a lot to football in general and for Cameroonian football in particular. I cannot say more than this because he is the only one to explain this."

Eto'o has recently moved to the Premier League after signing for Jose Mourinho's Chelsea side in the final week of the summer transfer window.
