Switzerland vs Cameroon Highlights FIFA World Cup 2022: Breel Embolo’s goal lifted Switzerland to a 1-0 win over Cameroon at the World Cup on Thursday and he kept his promise not to celebrate scoring against the country where he was born. The Swiss forward from Yaounde struck with a right-foot shot in the 48th minute, standing all alone eight meters (yards) out in the middle of the goalmouth to take Xherdan Shaqiri’s low pass. Cameroon’s streak of losses at World Cup finals tournaments extended to eight games dating back to 2002. Brazil and Serbia are also in Group G and they meet later Thursday.
