Etienne Eto’o, born in Spain is also eligible to play for the Spanish national teams at all levels, but after his call-up, he is expected to commit the future of his international football to Cameroon, his father’s country.

He wasn’t part of the Cameroon U-17 national team that won the Africa U-17 championship early this year to qualify for the FIFA U-17 World Cup.

Etienne Eto’o Pineda has, however, been invited to the provisional squad for the FIFA U-17 World Cup to be staged in Brazil.

Pineda is expected to follow the footstep of his father who also played for the Cameroon U-17 football and even featured for the senior team before he turned 17 years.

Etienne Eto’o Pineda plies his trade in Spain for the U-17 team of Real Mallorca- he is the skipper of the side.

The Cameroon Football Federation is waiting for clearance from Mallorca for Etienne to join the squad's Under-17 World Cup training camp at the CAF Centre of Excellence in Yaounde.

The team is expected to continue gearing up in Istanbul, Turkey from the 20-27 September before heading to Brasilia for their last training camp.

Cameroon has been drawn in Group E which has Argentina, Spain and Tajikistan in Brazil.
