World Cup Qualifiers: Eto’o scores big for Cameroon in Sunday’s World Cup qualifiers.


Sunday’s heavyweight contenders include Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire and Tunisia; they all won their games to remain on course for World Cup qualification.

The Indomitable Lion’s victory over the Sparrowhawks of Togo on Saturday in Yaoundé during their third round of World Cup 2014 qualifiers was made possible all thanks to the genius of their star, Samuel Eto’o.  Eto'o scored twice to lead Cameroon to a 2-1 victory in Yaounde against Togo who palyed without Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Captain Adebayor, involved in an on-off spat with coach Didier Six, did not play after failing to show up at Togo's training camp during the week.

Cameroon, aiming to qualify for Brazil 2014 after missing out on the last two Nations Cup tournaments, are top of Group I with six points from three games following victory over Togo.
