The family house of Cameroon-born Swiss footballer Breel Embolo in Yaounde Cameroon is under police guard after planned attack by Cameroonians.
The Swiss player who was born in Cameroon scored the goal that destroyed the indomitable lions in first game of group G encounter in Qatar 2022.
Cameroonians who are unhappy after Embolo scored against his country of origin planned to attack the family house in Yaounde but the Police are already at the family house to protect the house against any form of attacks from fans.
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.
