Eto’o, four-time African Footballer of the Year, initially suggested he was not fit to play because of a groin injury, but did take part in the match and even wore the captain’s armband before being replaced on the hour mark.

Eto’o, who signed for Chelsea from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala last month, has scored 56 goals in 114 appearances for Cameroon and appeared at three World Cup finals in 1998, 2002 and 2010.
