Eto'o cleared to return to action
Samuel Eto'o
Barcelona and Cameroon will be fighting for Eto's services
Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o has been cleared to resume playing after three months out with injury.

He could return for his Spanish club Barcelona in this Sunday's league match against Deportivo La Coruna.

Barcelona announced Eto'o's comeback on their website.

"Samuel Eto'o received the green light this morning from doctors and can therefore be available to (coach) Frank Rijkaard for the last four matches of 2007," the club said on Tuesday.

Eto'o played in only one league game this season before rupturing a tendon in a friendly match with Inter Milan in late August.

Last season the former African Player of the Year was out for four months with a knee injury.

His return to fitness will increase the tension between his club and country.

Barcelona said in October that they were negotiating with Cameroon's football authorities to prevent Eto'o playing at the 2008 Nations Cup finals.

But Eto'o subsequently said that he intends to feature for the Indomitable Lions at the tournament in January.
