Cameroon's best: Samuel Eto'o and Gaelle Enganamouit


These two Cameroonian footballers SAMUEL and GAELLE have indelible records in world football history.
 Eto'o scored over 100 goals in five seasons with Barcelona, and is also the record holder in number of appearances by an African player in La Liga. In 2010, he became the first player to win two European continental trebles following his back-to-back achievements with Barcelona and Inter Milan. He is the second player in history to score in two UEFA Champions League finals and the fourth player, after Marcel Desailly, Paulo Sousa and Gerard Piqué, to have won the trophy two years in a row with different teams.
As a member of the Cameroon national team, Eto'o was a part of the squad that won the 2000 Olympic tournament. He has also participated in four World Cups and six Africa Cup of Nations (being champion twice) and is the all-time leading scorer in the history of the Africa Cup of Nations, with 18 goals. He is also Cameroon's all-time leading scorer and third most capped player, with 56 goals from 118 caps. He announced his retirement from international football on 27 August 2014. In 2015, he received the Golden Foot Award.

Gaëlle Deborah Enganamouit (born 9 June 1992) is a Cameroonian football forward who plays for Swedish Damallsvenskan club FC Rosengård and the Cameroon national team.Enganamouit previously played in the Serbian First League for Spartak Subotica, for whom she appeared in the UEFA Champions League. While playing for Spartak Enganamouit reportedly scored the fastest goal in women's football history, after two seconds.
Enganamouit had been the 2015 Damallsvenskan top goalscorer with 18 goals as Eskilstuna finished second after mounting an unlikely title challenge. On the opening day of the season, Enganamouit suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury which was expected to rule her out for the entire 2016 campaign
At the 2015 Women's World Cup in Canada she scored a hat-trick in Cameroon's 6–0 win over Ecuador. During the 2015 World Cup game against defending champions Japan, her unnerving drive and powerful style lead to her being lovingly known as "Freight Train" by Canadian fans
