World Cup 2010, Netherlands Vs. Cameroon: Samuel Eto'o Converts Penalty Kick, Equalizes For Cameroon

Samuel Eto’o has converted a penalty kick, beating Maarten Stekelenberg in the 65th minute, to pull Cameroon even with the Netherlands, 1-1.

Cameroon was awarded the penalty after Geremi’s direct kick on goal hit Rafeal van der Vaart’s elevated hand while the Dutch attacker was part of a wall planted in the penalty area.

Eto’o’s kick went into the left side of goal, hit hard enough to evade Stekelenberg, who had guessed the correct side.

The Netherlands clinch Group E’s first place with any points from Cameroon.
