Samuel Eto'o
Club:Real Mallorca
Position:Forward

Still just 21 years of age, Samuel Eto'o can perhaps go on to become the best striker to come out of Cameroon since Roger Milla.

He uses his pace to feed off experienced strike partner Patrick Mboma, with whom he has forged a fine understanding up front.

He first moved to Spain when Real Madrid lured him from Avenir Douala in Cameroon back in 1998.

He was then persuaded to join Real Mallorca for 4m with whom he has played in this year's Champions League.

Eto'o has pace and guile, but is criticised for a lack of consistency in front of goal.

Scored just once in this year's African Nations Cup but, with Mboma netting three times, there were signs that their partnership is beginning to blossom.
