Samuel Eto'o is a 38-year-old Cameroon International who currently plays for the Qatar club Qatar SC. He joined Real Madrid when he was just 16 and due to tough competition at the club, he served many loan spells away. He later joined RCD Mallorca in 2000 and scored 70 goals for them which was impressive enough for Barcelona who signed him for €24.30 million in 2004.

His spell at Barcelona was applauded by many fans and critics as he managed to prove his worth by reaching his peak at the club. He played along with many greats like Ronaldinho, Messi, Henry and Puyol just to name a few and was also considered as one of the greatest strikers at the time. He was an important figure in the attacking phase for the team.


He has 118 caps for his national side Cameroon and has scored 58 goals making him the leading scorer for Cameroon.

His trophy collection is something he can boast of greatly. He has won African Player of the Year 4 times, UEFA Champions League again 4 times, 3 times Spanish La Liga, One Italian Serie-A, One FIFA Club World Cup.
