Switzerland will take on Cameroon in group G of the World Cup in Qatar on Thursday.
Cameroon were just minutes away from their World Cup dreams evaporating as they contested their play-off with Algeria earlier this year. But with Karl Toko Ekambi’s dramatic last-minute winner, the Indomitable Lions clinched a place in Qatar on away goals.
The Swiss are the minor favorites here with a team still relying on key players like Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka.
But Cameroon have some talent in their ranks, like Andre Onana and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, and they will know that victory here could give them the platform to break out of a tough group that also includes Serbia.
Here’s everything you need to know.
When is Switzerland vs Cameroon?
The Group G match kicks off at 10:00 GMT at Al-Janoub Stadium in Al-Wakrah.
What TV channel is it on and how can I watch online?
It will be shown live on ITV 1, broadcasting from 9am, and also online on ITV X.
Switzerland have included four goalkeepers in their squad due to fitness concerns over Yann Sommer. Kevin Mbabu and Steven Zuber are injured and will not participate in the World Cup.
Cameroon are expected to have a full squad to choose from, with captain Vincent Aboubakar leading the pack.
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 have a lead on paper, but Cameroon are a useful side that can put up a competitive fight in Group G, especially given their attacking history and excellent goalkeeper. Switzerland 1-1 Cameroon.
