The 2014 World Cup was likely Cameroon captain Samuel Eto'o's last and it did not go as he would've hoped. The team's all-time leading scorer only managed to play in their opening loss to Mexico before a knee injury sidelined him for the losses to Croatia and Brazil that followed, eliminating Cameroon. As if that wasn't bad enough, he even had to step in a break up a fight between teammates Benoit Assou-Ekotto and Benjamin Moukandjo.
Needless to say, Eto'o probably needed a hug after all this and as Cameroon left Brazil, he found someone who felt the same way. As the team got on their bus to head for the airport, a young fan shouted for the three-time Champions League winner and instead of waving or shaking hands, Eto'o put down his bag and gave the boy a world class hug. When Eto'o saw that he was overcome with emotion, he rubbed the kid's head and hugged him again, sharing a moment that appeared to bring tears to Eto'o's eyes as well.
