Embolo, a Cameroonian in the Swiss jersey, defeats Cameroon

The Swiss team loves major challenges, facing the best teams to disarm them and denounce their shortcomings, the worst enemy for the favorites



A Cameroonian defeated Cameroon.

Breel Embolo, born in Yaoundé, a player for Monaco and a center forward for Switzerland, finished off what was surely the best play of the game at the Al Yanoub Stadium.

The goal, the first in World Cup history scored by a player against his country of birth, changed the script of a match that for a long time looked better for Cameroon.

Switzerland was not comfortable, cloudy and clumsy with the ball, while the indomitable lions ran non-stop to Sommer's goal.

The forwards of the African team did not hit the mark and allowed Switzerland to assert itself at the end of the break, already at 1-0, after having had a hard time at 0-0.

The Cameroon-Morocco final predicted by Eto'o is in danger pending the matches with Serbia and Brazil.

Switzerland loves major challenges, facing the best teams to disarm them and denounce their shortcomings, the worst enemy for the favorites and the best organized in any phase or tournament, and, on the contrary, it is difficult for them to face less known and difficult teams to decipher, adventurers like Cameroon.

Yakin's boys set out to attack from the beginning, as if they felt the need to show that they also know how to take the initiative, and they were portrayed because not only did they not reach Onana's frame, but they were repeatedly exposed to the fast transitions of the boys directed by Rigobert Song and chaired by Samuel Eto'o.

The Swiss offense was very slow and predictable, the ball always at their feet, with no ability to uncheck or filter a good pass, with no chance of overcoming Cameroon's midfielders and defenders.

Denied on the opposite court, they were vulnerable in defense, an unusual situation in a team that is very difficult to beat, usually solid around their goalkeeper Sommer.

Choupo-Moting's movements disorganized Yakin's defense and the arrivals of the forwards followed one another cleanly, preferably on the left wing of his attack, sometimes well resolved due to Widmer's anticipation.

Up to three clear scoring chances were counted in half an hour by Cameroon.

To which the Africans were encouraged, convinced that their goal did not depend on the game, but on luck, on a centimeter, a touch or a rebound, increasingly present in the opposite field and less vertical and fast, also improved Switzerland because they had a field to run, they did not have to process their attacking game and they also relied on strategy: Akanji, alone, headed wide the corner before half-time in a dynamic match at the Al Janoub stadium.

The auctions had not caught the goal luckily for Onana and Sommer.

Until the second part began and the sophisticated version of Switzerland appeared.

A fast and precise play, started on the left with a technical gesture by Vargas and handled by the interiors, ended on the right flank for Shaquiri.

The center of the exquisite forward to the heart of the area was finished off practically to an empty goal by Embolo.

A stupendous goal that was not celebrated by the Yaoundé-born Monaco striker.

Nothing appreciates Yakin's team more than playing with the score in favor in the same way that with a goal against it is easier for Cameroon to be disorganized.

The permeability of the midfield of the African team enabled the quick exits of Switzerland and Onana and Castelletto avoided the 2-0 after two shots by Vargas and Seferovic.

Grateful for the result and happy because Brazil and Serbia await them, Switzerland ended the game with an excellent round facilitated by Cameroon's fatigue.

Switzerland is Switzerland again thanks to Embolo.
