PARIS, June 16 – Cameroon captain Samuel Eto'o warned on Wednesday that he and under-fire coach Paul Le Guen will be held to account if the African giants suffer a World Cup meltdown.Cameroon got off to the worst possible start in South Africa, losing their Group E opener 1-0 to Japan.
"At the end of the World Cup, Paul must answer to the officials. And me, as a player and captain, I must do the same," the Inter Milan star told Canal Plus television.
Eto’o failed to make an impact against Japan where he was deployed out on the right instead of his traditional central attacking position.
"I played where the coach wanted. I gave it everything and I tried to put my teammates in good positions to do their job.
"I am the best scorer in the history of the Cameroon national team because I play in a certain position. But if the coach says ‘Samuel, you can help the team in this position,’ then I believe it’s something I must do."
Cameroon next face Denmark in Pretoria on Saturday where they must win to keep alive their hopes of making the last 16.
