Eto'o charges Indomitable Lions to make Marc-Vivien Foe proud at FIFA Confederation Cup

Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions will represent Africa in the FIFA Confederations Cup later this year in Russia ahead of the 2018 World Cup. They qualified for the tournament by virtue of being the current African champions.

As they continue to celebrate the feat of a fifth AFCON title, the country’s biggest footballer in recent times is asking the team to be worthy representatives of the continent at the Confederations Cup.

According to Samuel Eto’o who was in the stands in Libreville as the team won the crown by beating Egypt, Hugo Broos’s team must go and make Marc Vivian Foe proud at the event.

“Seeing Cameroon in the Confederations Cup reminds me of 2003. We will never forget you Foe! This team will make you proud, wherever you are. #playforfoe” he tweeted after the victory. His tweet was accompanied by a photo of him with former skipper, Rigobert Song, holding a photo of the late Foe.
