Samuel Eto’o son, Etienne, has said he is aiming to do better than his father after scoring a brace in his debut outing for Cameroon U20 at the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations in Mauritania.
The 18-year old Real Oviedo striker was handed a rare start on Saturday’s 4-1 victory against Mozambique, and he ensured the young Lions finished their group outings with an unblemished record of three wins.
The senior Eto’o is Cameroon’s all-time top scorer with a record of 56 goals and he also holds the record for winning the African Footballer of the Year award four times alongside Yaya Toure.
“There is always pressure in life whether or not you are the son of a famous person. My dad has played a huge influence in my life because I have always admired him and want to learn from him and continue in his steps. Always I want to be someone as him.”
