Cameroon 2-0 Cape Verde: Eto'o on Song

YAOUNDE, May 31 (Reuters) - Captain Rigobert Song and striker Samuel Eto'o scored on Saturday to give Cameroon a winning start to their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 2-0 win over the Cape Verde Islands in Yaounde.

Song, who first played for Cameroon just before the 1994

World Cup finals in the United States, gave Cameroon a ninth

minute lead and Eto'o added a second goal from the penalty spot

10 minutes into the second half.

The 31-year-old Song's goal came after Eto'o beat two

defenders to deliver the cross.

A shot from Eto'o was handled in the second half and the

former African Footballer of the Year converted the penalty.

Cameroon's preparations for the game were marred on Friday

when scuffles broke out between players and journalists at a

news conference, state radio reported on Saturday.

Radio Siantou reporter Philippe Bonney told Reuters Eto'o

had assaulted him and he would file a lawsuit against the

Barcelona striker.
