Switzerland get down the right hand side, and it is almost a carbon copy of their first goal. Vargas is on the end of it, instead of Embolo, and it is stopped by the mighty hands of Andre Onana. The keeper forces a corner which causes more problems for Cameroon, as Anguissa gets a foot on the cross to prevent Embolo from scoring an easy tap-in.

How to watch Switzerland vs. Cameroon in Group Stage of 2022 World CupThe final two groups in the 2022 FIFA World Cup will open their group stage play on Thursday, and it all kicks off with Group G as Switzerland and Cameroon face off in the early time slot. Switzerland will hope to qualify for the knockouts for the third consecutive time, while Cameroon haven’t made it past the group stage since 1990. They’re in a group with tournament favorites and Brazil and Serbia, so it will be a battle between the three lower ranked teams for the second place spot, assuming Brazil finish at the top of the group. Thursday morning’s match is set to kick off at 5 a.
Both teams gave a pretty good account of themselves this morning, despite the scoreline maybe not reflecting that, but will have to be at their very best to get a result in their next game. He's one of our own! That's what the Cameroon fans would have been singing if this was a 3pm kick-off in the English Football League. That's because Swiss goalscorer Embolo was born in Cameroon before scoring past them in the opening game of their World Cup campaign. It was a great finish by him, after a nice low cross from Shaqiri, and his composure and respect to not celebrate against the nation of his birth will gain plaudits from all over the world. He almost got a second goal shortly after, but for a fantastic block by Frank Zambo-Anguissa of Napoli.
Great defending from Cameroon where it matters most. 66. Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon. We have just seen Samuel Eto'o in the stands. How Cameroon will be wishing that they still had him in their ranks... Mbuemo whips a free-kick into the middle for Anguissa, but his header is easily saved by Sommer. 64. Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon. Elvedi picks up a yellow card for a shirt-pull on Choupo-Moting. That is a good foul from the Monchengladbach defender, and it allows Switzerland to regroup and get players behind the ball.

Their chocolate, their watches, their Christmas markets, and now their football team. Switzerland are world-renown for many things, and after today's performance they are at the top of Group G in the 2022 World Cup. Coming up next they have Brazil, which will be a much tougher task than this one, but they looked impressive when going forward and in defence. They perhaps didn't really get out of second gear on many occasions, but deserved the win that they got today. FT.
62. Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon. It might be time that we see a change for Cameroon, with Choupo-Moting starting to look like he is tiring up top. Switzerland get a good chance on the break, but Vargas wastes it after Embolo does well to create some space. 60. Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon. Anguissa has been really impressive in midfield for Cameroon as he wins the ball back for his side once more. The ex-Fulham man has been sensational for Napoli this season, and looks to be bringing that form to this tournament.
