Interviewed this Saturday by the newspaper The Team, Stade de Reims striker Hugo Ekitike mentioned his choice of national team. The 19-year-old Franco-Cameroonian, who has already been selected twice with the France U20 team, does not hide his dream of one day playing with the Blues. “I’m someone who doesn’t downplay anything. It’s not the A’s, but it’s still a national selection for your pay. It means you are one of the top players. It is consecration, a pride. Obviously a player with Team France, that’s a goal! That would be a lie to say the opposite. But I’m far from it. “said the Remois striker.
Ekitike, however, was not locked up at the gates of the Indomitable Lions and the president of the Cameroonian federation, Samuel Eto’o. The center-forward does not want to make a choice at the moment and prefers to focus on his club career. « To me, he is the greatest African player of all time. When you bring Samuel Eto’o back to your stadium, you begin to measure the dimension you take. Of course, I have a special attachment to Cameroon even though I am French. These are my roots too. But today I don’t prefer to focus on a selection choice. “an explained Hugo Ekitike.
