Embolo secures Swiss win over Cameroon

0 10

Breel Embolo, a Cameroon native, scored the only goal in a scrappy game to earn Switzerland a winning start to their Group ‘G’ campaign of the FIFA World Cup at the Al Janoub Stadium in Doha, Qatar yesterday.

Embolo, who was born in Cameroon’s capital Yaounde but raised in Basel, is representing the Swiss at his second FIFA World Cup having received citizenship in 2014.

The striker rounded off a free-flowing move in the 48th minute, sweeping home a low cutback from Xherdan Shaqiri, but opted for a muted celebration given his connection to the African nation.

The Swiss goal arrived after Cameroon, without a win in the World Cup for 20-years, had dominated an entertaining first half, missing several good chances to seize the initiative. (C.D)
