Samuel Eto'o: Chelsea striker returning to Cameroon squad

Eto'o, who quit the 'Indomitable Lions' last month, will now be available to face Tunisia on October 13 followed by the return leg November 17.

The 32-year-old, who made the move to Stamford Bridge this summer, said: "You can have all the problems in the world but you have to see out your mission.

"And this time it's to join my team-mates in Tunisia and return with a good result."

Eto'o, who made his debut for Cameroon in 1997, has regularly disagreed with Cameroon coaches and was banned last year after inciting a bonus-related boycott of a friendly in Algeria.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).
