LIVERPOOL, England -- Everton strengthened its attacking options by signing Samuel Etoo on a two-year deal on Tuesday after the striker was released by Premier League rival Chelsea. The 33-year-old Cameroon international, who scored 12 goals in 35 matches in his only season at Chelsea, is available to make his debut against the west London club on Saturday. "I was impressed about the hunger he still has," Everton manager Roberto Martinez said. "For someone who has achieved nearly everything, he still has the desire he had at 15 when he went to Spain and showed what he could do. For many reasons he has got a point to prove. "We are very excited and I think Everton is the perfect home for him. The fans will make him ready and feel sharp but we have got to be a bit patient with the fitness levels and make sure he is back to his best." Etoo is joining an Everton side which finished fifth in the Premier League last season. "I have been very impressed by the style of play Everton adopt," Etoo said. "I could see straight away that at this club I will have the opportunity to play football." Before his move to English football, the striker won two Champions League titles, three Spanish league trophies and one Copa del Rey during a five-year spell with Barcelona. He then joined Inter Milan in 2009, helping the Italian club win the Serie A title, the Champions League, the Coppa Italia (twice) and the Club World Cup. Voted African Footballer of the Year four times, he also helped his national team win the African Cup of Nations twice. However, Etoo signed for Everton hours after being dropped as Cameroons captain and permanently replaced by midfielder Stephane Mbia. Etoo had already been left out of coach Volker Finkes initial squad for the final round of African Cup of Nations qualifiers starting next month, which could signal the end of his international career.

Thats something that you try to get in December football.Bell was limited to 47 yards rushing on 20 carries by an Atlanta defence that focused on stopping the run.They did a good job of neutralizing our running game, although we were able to run it in crucial moments, short yardage and goal line, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.The Falcons have a must-win game next week at New Orleans.That is the situation that we are in, Atlanta cornerback Robert McClain said. Obviously, a win today would have put us in better shape but ... we have to get a win next week.Bell had five catches for 72 yards but was denied in his bid to become the first NFL player with 200 total yards in four straight games.It was tough sledding running the ball but that opened up other things, Bell said.
