Liverpool defender Matip ponders Cameroon comeback for Eto'o

Liverpool defender Joel Matip is considering ending his international retirement with Cameroon.

Matip hasn't played for Cameron since 2015 but there are reports that he could make his return to the international stage at the age of 30.

African Insider state: "Liverpool defender Joel Matip is "considering" a return to the Cameroon National Team.

"Samuel Eto'o's election as FECAFOOT President was unexpected, and has turned the heads of many players-in-exile. This could well see a return in interest for many dual-nationals."

Former Barcelona and Everton striker Eto'o will hold the role as president of the Cameroon FA for the next four years and it will see him act as a figurehead for January's Africa Cup of Nations - which takes place in Cameroon.
