Switzerland will face Cameroon in Group G of the Qatar World Cup.
For the last time on the world stage, the Swiss player made it to the last 16 but came to Sweden with a single goal. Similarly in 2014, the last-minute beauty of Angel Di Maria ended in a heartbreaking defeat to Argentina in the first qualifying round.
With a team that still counts on key players like Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka, the Swiss are the light favorites here.
But there are some talents in Cameroon’s ranks, like Andre Onana and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, who will know that victory here can provide them with a platform to step out of a tough group that includes Serbia.
Here is everything you need to know.
When is Switzerland Cameroon?
Group G match will start at 10:00 CEST at Al-Janoub Stadium in Al-Wakrah.
On which TV channel and how can I watch it online?
It will be shown live on ITV 1 and online on ITV X, starting at 9am.
Switzerland has appointed four goalkeepers to their roster due to fitness concerns about Yann Sommer. Injured Kevin Mbabu and Steven Zuber are absent from the World Cup.
Cameroon is expected to have a full squad led by captain Vincent Aboubakar.
Switzerland: Kobel, Widmer, Akanji, Elvedi, Rodriguez, Freuler, Xhaka, Shaqiri, Sow, Vargas, Embolo.
Cameroon: Onana, Fai, N’Koulou, Castelleto, Tolo, Anguissa, Ntcham, Mbeumo, Choupo-Moting, Ekambi, Aboubakar.
Switzerland has the advantage on paper, but Cameroon is a useful team that can compete competitively in Group G, especially given their offensive ancestry and their outstanding goalkeeper. Switzerland 1-1 Cameroon.
