Eto'o an injury doubt, misses training

Despite falling in their World Cup opener to Mexico, Cameroon are determined to win at any cost to avoid their sixth consecutive World Cup defeat.

VITORIA, Brazil -- Cameroon captain and striker Samuel Eto'o has missed training for a second straight day at the World Cup and is an injury doubt for the must-win group game against Croatia.

Eto'o was again absent for the workout on Sunday at Cameroon's base in Vitoria and coach Volker Finke said the forward -- whose contract at Chelsea expires this summer -- was struggling with the same right knee injury he nursed throughout the build-up to the World Cup.

The player himself confirmed via Twitter later on Sunday that he is likely to the match.

Cameroon lost 1-0 to Mexico in their opening Group A match and will next face Croatia, which fell to defeat in their first game to Brazil, on Wednesday.

This World Cup is likely to be the last for the 33-year-old Eto'o, Cameroon's leading all-time scorer. He is playing at his fourth World Cup.
