Samuel Eto'o admits Cameroon's World Cup failure has undermined an otherwise spectacular season for him.
The Inter Milan striker won an historic treble of league, cup and Champions League with his club last term. However, he admits Cameroon's limp showing - when so much was expected from African sides - has hit him hard.
After two defeats in two matches against Japan and Denmark, Thursday's clash with Holland in Cape Town will simply be a matter of pride. "All my season was focused to be ready for this World Cup," Eto'o said. "It's the only thing I could think about. It's hard. It's not normal for us to finish last."
