Switzerland vs Cameroon LIVE World Cup 2022: Latest score, goals and updates as Manuel Akanji misses sitter

Fifa World Cup: Results and reaction from day fou

Switzerland play Cameroon in Group G of the World Cup in Qatar.

Granit Xhaka will hope to carry over his form for Arsenal to Qatar, while the Indomitable Lions will lean on Vincent Aboubakar and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting up top.

The Swiss came unstuck against Sweden in the last 16 at Russia 2018 and will be confident they can advance to at least that stage, likely competing against Serbia with the tournament’s favourites Brazil tipped to win the group.

While Cameroon are back at the World Cup for the first time since 2014 when they were knocked out at the group stage and they have not gone further than this since 1990 when they made it to the quarter-finals.

HALF TIME! Switzerland 0-0 Cameroon

This from the The Independent’s Mark Critchley, who is reporting on this morning’s game.

“Currently on a mean average of 3.2 goals per game I’ve attended, and a median average of 0.”

We’ve had three 0-0s so far – and this encounter did have the feeling of a stalemate before kick-off.

It’s been fun, though, but do either team have the clinical finisher to make the difference in the second half?

HALF TIME! Switzerland 0-0 Cameroon

It’s goalless – but it really shouldn’t be. Cameroon have been the better team and have created two or three good opportunities, particularly on the breakaway. Cameroon then took control of possession but Switzerland had the best chance of the half on the stroke of the break. Manuel Akanji passed up a sitter from less than six yards. Miss of the World Cup so far, for me.

46+2 mins: CHANCE! How is this still goalless?!

From the corner, Akanji is wide open and has a free header from maybe four yards out – but he just doesn’t get enough on the header and is skims wide!

A golden opportunity – wasted.

Switzerland 0-0 Cameroon

45 mins: Widmer hangs a cross up but Embolo can’t direct it on target. Oum instead hacks out for a Switzerland corner. There will be two minutes added on…

Switzerland 0-0 Cameroon

41 mins: Block! Relief for Elvedi. The Swiss centre-back clears a cross straight into Chupo-Moting’s feet. The Bayern Munich striker looks to line up a shot, but Elvedi gets his body in the way.

39 mins: Big tackle! Embolo plays a smart one-two and cuts into the Cameroon box at the angle – the shot across goal looked on but Jean-Charles Castelletto recovers to make an important challenge on the stretch. Switzerland head wide from the corner.

Switzerland 0-0 Cameroon

35 mins: Chance! Excellent play from Cameroon! Chupo-Moting controls a lovely pass on the half-volley, playing in Fai on the right wing. Toko Ekambi looks to be free at the back post and gets ahead of Widmer, with Fai’s cross asking to be tapped in. But Widmer, the Swiss right back, makes a brilliant recovery and beats Toko Ekambi to the cross. Crucial defending.

Switzerland 0-0 Cameroon

33 mins: Better from Switzerland! They are able to play through the Cameroon press and drive into space through Sow – the cross from the right is cleared by Cameroon before Shaqiri whips in a cross from the left that evades everyone. They need to get more bodies into the box.

Switzerland 0-0 Cameroon

30 mins: Nice play! Lovely move from Cameroon as Choupo-Moting and Mbeumo exchange a one-two on the outside of the box. Sommer has to deal with Hongola’s shot from a tight angle and makes a mess of it. Widmer has to get back and hack clear.
