In the meeting between Cameroon Y Swiss, corresponding to the first date of Group G of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, it was striking that the player who scored the first goal of the match for the European team did not shout the partial victory goal and also apologized to the fans.
This is Breel Embolo, born in the African country but who plays for the Helvetic team. He scored after a great team combination and a cross behind Shaqiri. The footballer was born in the city of Yaoundé (the political capital of Cameroon), but became a Swiss national. For this reason, he did not celebrate the goal.
His parents separated and when he was 5 years old he emigrated to France with his mother. There, she met a Swiss man who took them to Basel and in 2014 he was naturalized.
Embolo began his career at the club baselwhere he made his first-team debut in 2013. In 2016, the forward went to FC Schalke 04 and in 2019 it went to Borussia Monchengladbach. This year, in the run-up to the World Cup, he signed for Monaco.
With the Swiss National Team he has already played two European Championships and the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
