LIVE – Switzerland-Cameroon: the Nati brings down Cameroon thanks to a goal from Embolo


It’s over at Al Janoub Stadium! Switzerland won 1-0 against Cameroon thanks to the only goal scored by Breel Embolo born in Yaoundé. In a group as tough as Group G (Brazil and Switzerland), the Nati took important points in the race for the round of 16. Despite a good first period, the Indomitable Lions were transparent in the second and are already in the hot seat.


Ball lost by the central hinge and Seferovic is close to breaking in this match! He is narrowly blocked by the defense but it was hot!

Cameroon still harmless

The lack of ambition in Cameroon’s game is glaring and the Indomitable Lions are unable to bring danger to Sommer’s goal.

six more minutes

There will be 6 minutes of added time in this game! Not sure that’s enough in Cameroon to equalize…


Ball lost by Cameroon in their camp and Xhaka took the opportunity to arm his first strike of the match! Onana goes to bed well!

Yellow card for Akanji

Yellow card for the Nati taken by Manuel Akanji, the City player! He protests but he has just stopped a Cameroonian counter-attack.

The good tackle of Nkoulou

It was still hot for Cameroon with a cross from Frei at the near post! Nkoulou comes back from afar and sends the ball for a corner!

In a false rhythm

With all these changes and these numerous faults, the match got into a false rhythm, which does not help Cameroon’s affairs.

Choupo Moting is replaced

Surprisingly, Choupo Moting and Toko Ekambi gave way to Aboubakar and Nkoudou!

Three changes for the Swiss

Murat Yakin brings heavy on the lawn with Seferovic, Okafor and Frei. Shaqiri, Sow and Embolo leave their place!

Hongla gives way to Ondoua

First change in this meeting for Rigobert Song! Hongla leaves his place to Ondua for the end of the meeting.


Cameroon is still surprised on the right with an overflow and a perfect cross from Widmer towards Vargas! His strike forces Onana to a reflex stop! On the corner that follows, Embolo misses his shot one meter from the goal!

Zambo doesn’t scare Sommer

Free kick fired by Mbeumo and it’s for Zambo Anguissa’s header! His ball is easily captured by Sommer!

Yellow card for Elvedi

What oriented control from Choupo Moting that puts Elvedi in the wind! The defender pulls his jersey and logically takes a yellow card.

Cameroon cut in half

Fatigue may be felt for Cameroon who fail to accompany their attackers during counter-attacks.


What an action from Choupo Moting who delights in the area by dribbling two defenders! He attempts a shot from a tight angle but Sommer pushes back!

Switzerland brings out the ball better

This goal from Embolo allowed the Nati to finally get into their game. It is now Cameroon who are backing up and can no longer get the ball back.

quiet sleep

Cameroon must react and it goes through set pieces! Mbeumo puts the ball in the box but it’s blessed bread for Yann Sommer!

Xhaka stays on the ground

Well jostled by a Cameroonian defender, Granit Xhaka remains on the ground but will not get a fault! It was Castelleto who made the impact in his duel.

Why Embolo didn’t celebrate his goal

Funny emotion for Breel Embolo, who has just opened the scoring for Switzerland. The Monaco player did not celebrate. It must be said that he could have played… in the opposite camp.

>>> we tell you his story here


The Nati opens the scoring against the run of play! Perfectly launched, Shaqiri crosses perfectly for Embolo who finishes the action with a flat foot… 1 to 0 for Switzerland!


It’s the break at Al Janoub Stadium! Switzerland and Cameroon leave without a single goal after 45 minutes of play. The Indomitable Lions were the most dangerous with a very active Choupo Moting-Mbeumo duo but they came up against a good Sommer. The Nati didn’t show much offensively.


The Nati relies on corners to be dangerous! Vargas finds Akanji’s head, but he doesn’t find the frame…

Choupo Moting narrowly blocked

Found in a good position, Choupo Moting turns around and sends a big shot which is narrowly countered!

Magnificent tackle from Castelleto

Overflow from Embolo in the area and Jean-Charles Castelleto tackles perfectly and simply concedes a corner!

Switzerland regains color

For a few minutes, the Nati has regained a semblance of possession under the impulse of Xhaka. But when they are without a solution, the Swiss swing the ball in front… But for no one!

Yellow card for Fai

First yellow card of the match for Cameroon! Big mistake by Collins Fai on Elvedi, carried away by his momentum!


Very good cross from Fai towards Toko Ekambi who throws himself to score in front of Sommer! Widmer throws himself and manages to touch the ball narrowly!

Embolo and Shaqiri struggling

The stars of the Swiss team Embolo and Shaqiri are struggling to impose themselves in this meeting. The former OL player moves out of the way to touch more balls!

Mbeumo is impregnable

With each ball touched, Bryan Mbeumo tries to make the difference and does not lose control of the ball! He only needs one goal!


It combines perfectly well on the Indomitable Lions side with Toko Ekambi who finds himself launched into the surface! His cross shot is repelled by Sommer then by Widmer!

Big foul on Vargas

Fai comes to put a big cleat from behind on Vargas who stays on the ground. No yellow card for the Cameroonian side.

The Nati is backing down a lot

New good ball for Toko Ekambi who works his opponent and finally gives back! Oum Gouet sends a shot that goes way over!

Cameroon again dangerous

Another great comeback from Cameroon who does everything well but fails to shoot on goal! Sommer is not reassured by his defense…

Livelier Cameroonians

After 20 minutes of play, we see that the Cameroonians are a little more lively than the Swiss! The Nati is struggling to take back the defense of the Indomitable Lions.

Big duel Akanji-Choupo

It’s a real fight of giants between Akanji and Choupo Moting! On the high balls, the two players throw their bodies on all the duels!

The Nati jostled

Corner for the Nati who finally wants to get an opportunity! It’s pushed back to the near post but the ball comes back into the area.


Ball won by Eric Maxim Choupo Moting who goes to goal alone! He plays his duel with Sommer who lies down perfectly on the strike with the left foot!

It’s heating up in the Cameroonian surface

The crosses and the passes accumulate in the Cameroonian surface and Castelleto is obliged to send a huge shoulder blow on Embolo! The Swiss was in an offside position!

Xhaka responds to Cameroon action

At the entrance to the area and a bit out of spite, Granit Xhaka sends a big shot that goes over!


Super deep ball to Mbeumo who sends a heavy shot from a tight angle! Sommer pushes back… on Toko Ekambi who sends a new shot above!

Tolo does not pass the first curtain

Good free kick for Cameroon at 30 meters but it’s badly shot by Tolo… The ball is returned!

Onana can’t find anyone

Not attacked, Onana sends a long ball towards Toko Ekambi but it’s much too strong! Cameroon is struggling to put its game.

Switzerland put their foot on the ball

On these first minutes, it is the Swiss selection which has the most possession! Embolo shifts Shaqiri but big tackle from Tolo!

Shaqiri sets fire

First corner of the game for the Nati and Shaqiri will take it! It’s cleared in disaster by the defense of the Indomitable Lions!
