The African legend joined the football world to pay tribute to the former Indomitable Lions defender

Antalyaspor forward Samuel Eto’o paid respect to former Cameroon international Benjamin Massing who passed away on Saturday, December 9.

The defender who made a name for himself with a tackle against Argentina’s Claudio Caniggia in the 1990 Fifa World Cup in Italy died at the age of 55.

Massing's tackle was dubbed as one of the worst tackles in World Cup history as the Indomitable Lions cruised to a 1-0 win in their opening encounter.

However, the four-time African Player of the Year has expressed his grief over the defender's demise.


Aucun RESPECT pour les africains. Pourtant les archives sont là... Adrénaline 💉💉💉💉
