Samuel Eto'o has opened up about his return to international football with Cameroon following a self-imposed exile.
"It is always a pleasure and a childhood dream to represent 25 million people," the striker told beIN SPORT.
"They asked me to come back and I'm back. More than a victory, I'd like to see the soul of Cameroon reborn."
Eto'o was banned for eight months by the Cameroon football authorities after inciting a player revolt over late payments of appearance fees.
He boycotted his comeback game in protest, but has since agreed to return to the international setup following a plea by the country's prime minister.
Eto'o is currently playing his club football with Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala.
