Due praise for Eto'o

HERO WORSHIP: Papiss Cisse

NEWCASTLE UNITED striker Papiss Cisse has spoken of his admiration for his "idol” Samuel Eto’o. Newcastle travel to Russia to face Eto’o’s team Anzhi Makhachkala on Thursday, but Cisse took time out to pay homage to the Cameroon international.

The Newcastle striker said: "He's an idol for me," Cisse told the Evening Chronicle. "Samuel [Eto'o] is an extraordinary player and somebody who has played at the very top level for club and country. He's one of the best attackers in the game. Samuel is somebody I have known for a long time and a person who I have a great deal of respect for.

On United's Euro mission, Cisse added: "My job is to win games for Newcastle and I hope we win the games and get through.

"We can go far. You've seen how well we are doing and how well we did in Metalist. Everybody saw how well Shola Ameobi did in Ukraine.

"He won a lot of balls up front and scored a penalty. Our objective is to enjoy playing in the competition and to go as far as we can."
