2022 World Cup: Embolo Scores The Lone-goal As Switzerland Beat Cameroon

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Switzerland’s Breel Embolo scored the lone goal of the match as the European nation defeated the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon 1-0 in today’s Group F clash.

The first half produced lots of excitements as both teams showed great attacking prowess.

Cameroon almost took the lead in the 10th minute but Karl Toko Ekambi’s effort failed to hit the back of the net. It was a sitter that he should have converted.

Meanwhile, Switzerland had a fair share of the goal scoring chance too as an unmarked Murphy Akanji also failed to direct his header straight into the net.

Swiss were dominant in terms of controlling position and deservedly netted the opening goal in the second half through Breel Embolo’s right foot shot in the 48th minute.

The Indomitable Lions had the chance to level score in the 57th minute but Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting’s shot was saved by Sommer.

The victory put Switzerland top of Group G on three points while Cameroon sit bottom on zero point.

Cameroon face Serbia while Switzerland will battle Brazil in their next group games.
