Samuel Eto’o marries long-term girlfriend in Italy

Cameroon striker Samuel Eto’o celebrated marrying his long-term girlfriend Georgette Tra Lou at a ceremony in Stezzano, northern Italy this month.

The ceremony took place on Tuesday 14 June, just 40km from Milan where Eto’o spent two years playing for Internazionale Milano.

Georgette Tra Lou married the 35-year-old striker after more than a decade together, arriving at the church in Stezzano in a vintage convertible.

Eto’o, by comparison, drove himself to the ceremony in a classic Fiat 500, where he was greeted by celebrity guests such as former Barcelona team-mate Carlos Puyol.

The journeyman footballer has played in six countries over the course of a career which began at the Kadji Sport Academy in Douala, Cameroon before transferring to Real Madrid on a youth contract.

His illustrious career has seen him amass twenty winners medals, including win three La Liga titles, one Serie A title, two African Cup of Nations wins, and an Olympic Gold Medal.

He currently plays for Turkish side Antalyaspor and has a hand in the Samuel Eto’o Private Foundation, which provides aid and education to children in West Africa.
