Finke believes Eto'o could be set to retire soon

Cameroon coach Volker Finke believes Samuel Eto is on the verge of retiring from international football.

The 32-year-old hitman, who was recently signed by Chelsea, was substituted after an hour with a suspected hamstring injury, during Cameroon's 1-0 victory over Libya on Sunday.

However, reports from L'Equipe claims that the striker told his team-mates after the game on Sunday that it was to be his last in a Cameroon shirt.

But Finke refused to confirm this report, hinting that the former Anzhi man is the best person to explain this.

"Samuel Eto'o is a great player and it is better that he should be the one to explain things," Finke told reporters.

"He is the only one who can explain why he took the decision. Of course, he has given a lot to football in general and for Cameroonian football in particular.

"I cannot say more than this because he is the only one to explain this."

Should Eto'o hang up his international boots, Chelsea's front line could become very daring since the striker's focus will be directed solely to the Stamford Bridge club.

Jose Mourinho is yet to hand Eto'o his debut for the west London club, but injury-permitting, could be available for selection when Chelsea travel to Goodison Park to take on Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.
