DID YOU KNOW ?

Samuel Eto'o is a native speaker of Basaa.

He was the youngest participant in the 1998 FIFA World Cup when he appeared in a 3–0 group stage loss to Italy on 17 June 1998, at the age of 17 years and three months.

At RCD Mallorca he returned the fans' appreciation when he donated €30,000 in meals to travelling Mallorca supporters who made the journey to the Copa del Rey final against Recreativo de Huelva in 2003.

After Barcelona won the 2004-05 La Liga title, the team organized a festive party in the Nou Camp, during which Eto'o harangued the fans chanting, "Madrid, cabrón, saluda al campeón" (roughly: "Madrid, bastards, salute the champions").
