36-year-old Eto’o outscoring compatriot Aboubakar

Samuel Eto'o Antalyaspor
The evergreen talisman bagged his 15th and 16th of the season for Antalyaspor as they edged Bursaspor in the Super Lig.

Cameroon legend Samuel Eto’o scored a brace in Antalyaspor’s 2-0 win over Bursaspor in the Super Lig on Saturday.

Eto’o opened the scoring in the 32nd minute to send his side a goal ahead to the recess, but Sinan Bakis drew the visitors level shortly after the restart.

With ten minutes left to spare before full-time, Eto’o showcased the class that has seen him don the colours of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea among others.

The Indomitable Lions legend’s attempted through ball was blocked by a defender, but the ball fell right back at his mercy and he curled a superb low shot beyond the goalkeeper from some 40 yards out.

The strikes were his 15th and 16th of the campaign and this was the fourth time this campaign that the 36-year-old has scored two or more goals in a single match.
