17:33 (IST)24 NOV 2022

17:32 (IST)24 NOV 2022

17:27 (IST)24 NOV 2022

FULL-TIME! Switzerland 1 Cameroon 0. Cameroon tried till the end but it was Breel Embolo's goal which proved to be the difference. Lack of quality in finishing let Cameroon down even as they posed a constant threat to the Swiss goal. Switzerland after the goal used all their experience and nous to protect their one goal lead.

17:27 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Haris Seferovic has a glorious chance as he is through on goal, cuts inside and shoots but Jean-Charles Castelletto keeps Cameroon just about alive with a last-ditch block. Desperate defending.

17:24 (IST)24 NOV 2022

6 minutes of added time.

17:19 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Granit Xhaka is allowed some space and he shoots with his left-foot but Onana has a comfortable stop to his left even though it was on target.

17:13 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Cameroon too make a change: Bryan Mbeumo off and Moumi Ngamaleu on.

17:11 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Now Swiss make another change: Ruben Vargas off and Fabian Rieder on.

17:05 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Double change for Cameroon: Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Karl Toko Ekambi come off for Georges Nkoudou and Vincent Aboubakar.

17:03 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Triple change for Switzerland: Seferovic, Frei and Okofor replace Sow, Shaqiri and Embolo.

16:59 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Frank Anguissa with a header at Sommer who catches and there is a break at the other end, Shaqiri squares it to Ruben Vargas who fires a shot at Onana who does well to palm it away. Was hit with power and Onana did well to keep it out. And soon after Anguissa almost slices a clearance straight into his own net. All action at the moment.

16:52 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Spaces appear in the Cameroon backline as they search for an equaliser.

16:48 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting with great feet but there's no team-mate to cross to inside the box and he shoots straight at Sommer from a tight angle.

16:44 (IST)24 NOV 2022

STAT courtesy BBC: Cameroon have failed to win in their last four matches when conceding the opening goal in the World Cup dating back to 24th June 2010 against Netherlands.

16:39 (IST)24 NOV 2022

GOAL! Breel Embolo in the 48th minute! Switzerland 1 Cameroon 0. The man born in Cameroon scores against the country of his birth. No celebration though as a mark of respect. Loads of space for Shaqiri on the right and he delivers a pinpoint cross to the 6-yard box where Embolo sweeps home. Can't miss from there.

16:36 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Second half starts.

16:19 (IST)24 NOV 2022

HALF-TIME! Switzerland 0 Cameroon 0. The best chance of the half fell to Switzerland's Akanji but it was Cameroon who posed the greater threat.

16:18 (IST)24 NOV 2022

WHAT A CHANCE! For Manuel Akanji who rises high but glances his header just wide of the far-post. That should be 1-0 to Swiss.

16:17 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Two minutes of added time.

16:11 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Jean-Charles Castelletto now with a fine tackle to get the ball away from Breel Embolo on the left. From the resulting corner Nico Elvedi heads wide. Half a chance for Swiss.

16:08 (IST)24 NOV 2022

YELLOW CARD to Cameroon's Collins Fai.

16:07 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Karl Toko Ekambi is in on goal but Silvan Widmer with a superb sliding tackle and he gets the ball first to stop a certain goal.

15:58 (IST)24 NOV 2022

The game is meandering a bit with both sides still striving for their opening goal.

15:46 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting nicks the ball off and is straight through but he shoots straight at Sommer. Anyway the flag was up and the referee gives a free-kick to Swiss. Not sure why.

15:42 (IST)24 NOV 2022

A killer through ball from defence leads Bryan Mbeumo through on the left but he shoots straight at Sommer who punches it away and then the follow-up is blazed over. Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting was asking for the ball in the middle and was left frustrated in the end. The first chance of the game.

15:38 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Both teams have started off slowly. Still assessing each other.

15:32 (IST)24 NOV 2022


15:30 (IST)24 NOV 2022

15:27 (IST)24 NOV 2022

14:57 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Starts for Switzerland and Arsenal's Granit Xhaka, Borussia Monchengladbach's Nico Elvedi and Yann Sommer, and Manchester City's Manuel Akanji.

14:55 (IST)24 NOV 2022

14:11 (IST)24 NOV 2022

Switzerland are an experienced team and have been a tough nut to crack over the years. However, Vladimir Petkovic is no longer their head coach, with Murat Yakin taking over the reins in 2021. No one knows how they'll fare at the 2022 FIFA World Cup, but judging by the talent in their squad, they should have enough firepower to ruffle a few feathers, at the very least.
