Owona, 67, played for Cameroon in the 1960's before retiring from international duty in 1972.

However, he's living in brutal conditions following a slew of terrible events.

He tragically lost his family then suffered inguinal hernia and ultimately became homeless.

Owona's sad situation alerted Eto'o who paid him a visit in hospital and gave him money, according to former player, Joseph Kamga via BBC.

He's also promised to buy Owona a house in a brilliant gesture.

Owona had also written to some government ministers about the state of his health.

He said he was unable to get medical help because he had no money or home, having spent all his earnings, which included savings, to pay for the cancer care of his wife and kids.

Heartbreaking.

Props to the ex-Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea striker for helping out.
