FIFA World Cup 2022 Live Updates: First win key in tough group for Switzerland and Cameroon

SWIZERLAND: Yann Sommer, Silvan Widmer, Nico Elvedi, Manuel Akanji, Breel Embolo, Remo Freuler, Granit Xhaka, Ricardo Rodriguez, Djibril Sow, Ruben Vargas, Xherdan Shaqiri. CAMEROON: Andre Onana, Nicolas Nkoulou, Andre-Frank Zambo- Anguissa, Karl Toko Ekambi, Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting, Samuel Oum Gouet, Martin Hongla, Collins Fai, Bryan Mbeumo, Jean-Charles Castelletto, Nouhou Tolo.

 

Cameroon’s Zambo Anguissa was rewarded by Napoli with a contract extension earlier this month after recording three goals and six assists in 18 appearances in all competitions this season.

 

Starting Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer, one of the four selected for the tournament due to injury concerns, was deemed fit enough to start despite sustaining an ankle injury while playing in the Bundesliga last month.

 

Swiss forward Breel Embolo will start against his native Cameroon in their World Cup Group G opener at Al Janoub Stadium in Qatar on Thursday, while the Indomitable Lions will look to Napoli’s Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa to boost their playmaking abilities.

 

After losing another shootout in the quarterfinals to Spain, coach Vladimir Petkovic parlayed his rising reputation after seven years into joining Bordeaux. He was fired within months
