Cameroon-born Breel Embolo’a goal destroyed the indomitable lions who dominated the first half of the group G opening fixture at Al-Janoub Stadium, Al-Wakrahin in Qatar

Breel Embolo’s goal was enough to earn Switzerland a typically steely victory over Cameroon in their opening World Cup game.

Embolo finished off a sweeping team move in the 48th minute to ensure the Swiss made a winning start in a group that also contains Brazil and Serbia.

A lively Cameroon forward line missed chances on the counter-attack in the first half, but they needed a stunning save from Andre Onana and some last-ditch defending to keep the score down in the second.

Cameroon’s next game will be against Serbia while Switzerland will take on Brazil who play their first game against Serbia later in the day.
