Eto'o eyes history as Cameroon face Sudan

TAMALE, Jan 29 (Reuters) - Samuel Eto'o has a chance to make African Nations Cup history when Cameroon face table-propping Sudan in their Group C decider on Wednesday (1700 GMT).

The striker needs one goal to break the record of 14 in the tournament set by Ivory Coast's Laurent Pokou in 1970.

Cameroon should win comfortably to make the quarter-finals along with defending champions Egypt, who lead the group with six points and need a point against Zambia in their match in Kumasi (also 1700) to go through.

Zambia and Cameroon have three points apiece but the Indomitable Lions hold the advantage of having won their match against the Zambians 5-1 should they finish equal on points.

Eto'o said: 'My first objective is to keep scoring for my country and make sure we get our ticket for the quarter-finals.

'But I also want to beat the goalscoring record in my next match,' added the striker, who has scored three goals in the tournament in Ghana, equalling Pokou's record with a penalty in Saturday's 5-1 rout of Zambia.

Sudan, making their first Nations Cup appearance for 32 years, seem the perfect opponents for Eto'o after shipping three goals in each of their first two games against Zambia and Egypt.

Sudan, with Nigeria the only team yet to score in the tournament, have no points and only a mathematical chance of progressing.

The other game pits Egypt's attack, which has already mustered seven goals, against the notoriously leaky Zambian defence.

The Zambian rearguard were involved in a comedy of errors in the Cameroon defeat and are unlikely to relish the thought of facing the Pharaohs, who have looked the most accomplished team in the tournament so far.
