Chelsea striker Samuel Eto'o has told Cameroon team-mates he is quitting the national team ahead of World Cup qualifying play-offs.
Eto'o, record four-time winner of the African Footballer of the Year award, broke the news after a 1-0 win over Libya at the weekend.
A Cameroon football official told AFP in Yaounde that Eto'o, 32, announced his retirement to team-mates in the dressing-room after the match.
"He did not give reasons why he is retiring from the national team," said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.
