Switzerland comfortably beat Cameroon in a match that never really looked like a contest. Switzerland were all over Cameroon from the word go. 

Cameroonians had their moments of brilliance, but they weren't strong enough to warrant a goal at any stage of the game. For Switzerland, Embolo combined with Shaqiri to hand them a goal. Switzerland was the better side, but they have also missed out on many great opportunities and this might haunt them against better teams further down the road.

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.

Embolo then



pursed his lips in a wry smile and held his arms out wide, before raising his hands in a gesture of apology as teammates rushed to him near the penalty spot. He pointed toward Swiss fans behind the goal where he had scored then to Cameroon fans at the opposite corner of Al Janoub stadium.

The 25-year-old forward left Cameroon with his family when he was five. They spent time in France before settling in Switzerland, the country he is now representing at a second World Cup.

Though an African-born player scored, teams from Africa are now scoreless through the four games they have played at this World Cup. All have played higher-ranked teams, and Morocco and Tunisia earned 0-0 draws, respectively against Croatia and Denmark.
