Breel Embolo scores as Switzerland beat Cameroon 1-0 in WC

 

SUI vs CMR Match Report: The 2022 WC final between "Morocco and Cameroon" predicted by Samuel Eto'o is a little further away. The 'Indomitable Lions' have lost in their debut against Switzerland (1-0) in the cruelest way possible: the Swiss goal was scored by Embolo in the 48th minute of the game securing a win for them. The Monaco attacker was born on the streets of Yaoundé, but when it came to choosing, he put Switzerland before Cameroon.

It is already known: "Whoever loves you well will make you cry". Cameroon, who was returning to a WC eight years later, was superior to Switzerland in the first half. Rigobert Song's men didn't need to monopolize possession to enjoy the best chances.

Anguissa's transitions and Choupo-Moting's sublime back game with his back-to-goal made the 'Lions' 'roar'. Toko Ekambi 'sent to the clouds' a frank shot after a poor clearance from Sommer at 10'. He deflected a cross-shot from Hongla after 30 minutes.

The best opportunity, however, did not materialize. Widmer avoided extremist the 0-1 at 35'. Toko Ekambi was about to push a 'death pass' from Collins Fai at will but the Mainz defender anticipated it. Two headers from Elvedi (40') and Akanji (45') were the only highlights for Switzerland. They went outside. The 'Swiss' went to rest without shooting at three sticks.

The script changed as soon as the second part began. The first shot between the three sticks came at 48' and was a goal. Freuler opened on Shaqiri's rise from the right and the now Chicago Fire player served up the back pass for Embolo to score at will. The Monaco striker, who has 12 goals for Switzerland, went on to score his first goal at a WC against his home country. Cameroon's reaction was too timid, if not non-existent.

The Swiss next play Brazil on Monday with Cameroon taking on Serbia.
