Etienne Eto’o Pineda, son of legendary Cameroonian striker Samuel Eto’o has been included amongst the 26 juniors lions called up for the last preparatory exercise in Morocco for the Under 20 AFCON in Mauritania.

Cameroon is in Group A of the Under 20 AFCON alongside host Mauritania, Uganda and Mozambique. The tournament begins on February 14, with Mauritania facing Cameroon.

It should be recalled that for the first preparatory exercise ahead of the competition, Etienne Eto’o was not amongst the players called up. Coach Ousmanou Christopher had called 32 players, and in his latest list, some of the players have been side-lined.

Cameroon qualified for the 2021 edition of the U20 AFCON in Mauritania after winning the UNIFFAC tournament, a competition played amongst the members of the Central African region held in Equatorial Guinea.
