Anzhi striker Samuel Eto’o Fils after his game in the Russian Championship was in Cameroon where he talked with the Prime Minister Philemon Yang on Tuesday.

This has laid to rest the silence that surrounded the announced mission to woo Eto’o Fils back to the national team.

Sources say the four-time African Player of the Year has agreed to come back to the national team.

But, on the condition that the changes he wished to see in the management of the national team be tackled immediately after the October 14 match.

Defeated 2-0 by the Blue sharks, Cameroon takes on Cape Verde in the return leg of the African Nations Cup qualifiers in a forthnight.

Eto’o is expected to return to the national team following the initiative by government to bring back the striker to help Cameroon qualify for the 2013 cup finals hosted by South Africa.

The striker refused the national team and the away leg match against Cape Verde after serving his eight month ban for the player’s strike in Marrakech.

He suspended his participation in the national team for what he termed amateurism and bad management plaguing the team.

Following his appointment as the head coach, Jean Paul Akono announced plans were underway to bring back the skipper.

Akono told ‘Jeune Afrique’ magazine that he had a telephone conversation with Eto’o Fils.

Akono is expected to make public his squad 14 days ahead of the encounter, on September 26.
