MADRID -  (AFP) - Spanish league giants Barcelona are trying to stop star striker Samuel Eto'o, currently out injured, playing for Cameroon in the African Nations Cup finals at the end of January 2008 in Ghana.

Eto'o had a successful operation last Saturday on his right leg and will be out for two to three months, according Barcelona, who want him to be available for the rest of the season.

The club will be negotiating to avoid losing the striker for national duties after his recovery, Barcelona president Joan Laporta said on the club's internet site.

"He must first play for Barcelona before the other teams," said Laporta of the 26-year-old who missed four months through injury last season.
