The Indomitable Lions whose reputation was dragged in mud after suffering a series of defeats before and during the World Cup are now back on track. Cameroon beat Poland at Szczecin 3-0 .

The interim coach Jacques Songo decided to line-up Sebastien Bassong, Nkoulou, Assou Ekotto and Binya at the defence, Bedimo, Chedjou, Makoun and Marcel Ndjeng at the midfield, and  Choupo Moting and Samuel Eto’o as attackers. N’dy Assembe was given an opportunity to constitute the first 11 squad as goalkeeper.

With a prolific midfield and fluidity in delivery, the Lions created so many scoring chances.

The Inter Milan striker , Samuel Eto’o scored in the 30th and 52th minutes , with the Valencienne new-comer , Vincent Aboubakar completing the scoring in the 85th minute with a terrific strike after displacing a Polish defender . The result was a blow to Poland, which suffered its fourth defeat in a row. Poland and Ukraine are to co-host the European Championship in 2012.

Cameroon goalkeeper Kameni Carlos whose name was apparently omitted to be  part of the team to confront Poland in a friendly match on the 11th of August has accused Samuel Eto’o for influencing the selection of players in the National team. According to Jacques Songo’o , the interim coach and signatory of the 22 shortlisted  players, he did not call Kameni because he wants to give an opportunity to other goalkeepers notably Guy-Roland Ndy Assembe. Kameni who has been consistent for about 8 years  in the National team was very disappointed to watch the World Cup in South Africa unravel on the bench as a substitute and points his finger at the National team captain for his non-selection.

Is Kameni’s allegation true?

Rumours say the relationship between Samuel Eto’o and most of his teammates was filthy during the World Cup in South Africa.

Dear captain and elder brother,

The news about your retirement from international career reached me during an Inter Milan training session in the United States . Though this announcement is not a surprise, it deserves more attention.

In 1998, when I arrived amongst the Indomitable Lions, I had the pleasure to mix with seniors like Patrick Mboma, Marc Vivien Foe, Raymond Kalla and of course you. These are the moments that are remarkable to any young player and I have very fond memories . Rigobert, you do not deserve to go by a simple press conference. We who have been teammates in the national team with you are calling for a more solemn retirement.

You will surely hold a jubilee when you quit your club career, but the country’s sports authorities should have the duty to organize  a tribute  game for everything that you brought to our country, well beyond a simple jubilee.

…You won two African Cups of Nations, you were finalist in the Confederations Cup, you have participated in four finals of the World Cup, you hold the record for most number of matches played during the CAN, you were captain national team for ten years. Very few people can match such a record with the Indomitable Lions.

I … address an open letter because I want to associate all Cameroonians and all those who love football to these few words.

Do not forget that you  still have to lead Trabzonspor to new conquests during the 2010-2011 season ahead.

Eto’o
