Samuel Eto’o, the former Cameroonian footballer, has been captured attacking a cameraman outside a stadium at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

In the viral footage, Eto’o, who is the president of the Cameroon Football Association, could be seen leaving Stadium 974 following the conclusion of the second-round match between Brazil and Korea on Monday.

The video initially shows the 41-year-old gleefully indulging fans’ demand for selfies and snapshots.

An unknown man with a hand-held camera and microphone approaches Eto’o with some questions.


Shortly, the footage cuts to the four-time African footballer of the year becoming hostile and being held back by his entourage.

He eventually wrestles himself free from the pacifiers and charges toward the cameraman, who is now bending down.


Eto’o delivers a powerful kick to what appears to be the prone man’s face or upper body, knocking him to the ground.

It remains unclear what had transpired between the cameraman and the former Barcelona striker before the violent outburst.

Despite the ouster of Cameroon in the group stage, Eto’o remained in Qatar as a FIFA “legacy ambassador” for the World Cup.

A FIFA official informed TheCable that the video had been tabled before the federation and would be addressed in the coming days.
