Huge scandal in Qatar: Samuel Eto’o knocked out a cameraman after a brutal knee to the head (video) – Football World – World Cup

Former Barcelona footballer Samuel Eto’o, who is president of the Football Association of Cameroon, caused a big scandal in Qatar. After the match between Brazil and South Korea, which he watched from the stands, he got into a physical altercation with a cameraman. After numerous fans took pictures with Eto’o, one continued to follow him with a camera and take pictures of him. The cameraman is said to have shouted the name of referee Gassama, who was officiating the Algeria-Cameroon match in a crucial World Cup qualifier.

Security came to wrest the camera from his hands and Samuel Eto’o furiously pounced on him. The others initially managed to stop him from reaching the young man, but Partidazocope claims he punched the young man several times, with the last knee to the head knocking the cameraman to the ground before he managed to get up as the others pulled Eto’o aside.
