Last updated on .From the section World Cup

Breel Embolo has scored six goals in his past 10 appearances for Switzerland

Switzerland's Breel Embolo scored the only goal against Cameroon - the country of his birth - in a hard-fought World Cup Group G opener.

Embolo refused to celebrate when he finished off a slick Swiss attack shortly after half-time.

The Indomitable Lions were unfortunate to lose after an enterprising display at the Al Janoub Stadium in Qatar.

However, with Brazil looming in this group, Embolo's strike secured a valuable three points for Switzerland.
