🇨🇲🏆 Samuel Eto'o: Who will break his AFCON goal-scoring record?

African football legend Samuel Eto'o has won a record number of titles across Europe and in Africa with Cameroon. 

In Africa, no player has scored more goals in the history of Africa Cup of Nations than the former Real Madrid youth player. 

The 118-capped player has netted a record 18 goals, overtaking Cote d’Ivoire’s Laurent Pokou (14 goals), in six editions for The Indomitable Lions. He has notched 56 goals for the national team in a 17-year career, a national record. 

Eto’o was among the Cameroon team that won back to back AFCON titles in 2000 and 2002. He also took part in four more editions (2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010), scoring at least a goal in each of them, which is also a record (scoring in six different AFCON editions) that he shares with Zambia’s Kalusha Bwalya and Ghana’s Asamoah Gyan.
