There are some big hitters entering the World Cup fray today: Brazil, the unemployed Cristiano Ronaldo, to name but two. There are few big hitters, however, than Xherdan Shaqiri’s calves. The Swiss international has 109 caps to his name in his 31 years. Experience is a theme of this Switzerland squad; there are three players with a century of international appearances to their name, not to mention Haris Seferovic on 98 and 33-year-old Yann Sommer. It helped them defeat France in the Euros to reach the quarter finals. They made it out of the group at the past two World Cups, so will come into this feeling relatively confident.


Obviously, the fact Brazil are also in Group G makes this a must-win game for Switzerland and Cameroon. The Africans are not at their historic best but there is plenty of quality running throughout the side. From Andre Onana in net to the in form Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting at the other end of the pitch, Cameroon can give most teams a game of their day. The finished third in last year’s Africa Cup of Nations, so they know how to progress in a tournament. They arrive in Qatar ranked 43rd in the world, 28 below Switzerland, which is a slight indication of the difference between the two teams but I think the gap is not as large as Gianni Infantino’s boffins think.


Let’s hope for a decent game to get Group G off to a fine start.


Kick-off: 10am GMT

An entertaining and even first half. Each groups can be happy with their efficiency and maybe somewhat irritated that they failed to search out the online.

45+1 min: A Switzerland nook discovered Akanji on the sting of the six-yard field however he might solely ship his header vast. An incredible alternative.

Daniel makes an fascinating level. FIFA cannot get many calls proper. I am afraid they do not even think about that sort of factor.

@Will_Unwin Crimson shirts & shorts, vs inexperienced shirts & socks. One other cracking match for the color blind. Why, FIFA, why? Or ought to we be grateful the socks are clearly completely different?

28 minutes: Cameron wins the purpose kick though Tolo seems to be to be the person to get the final contact. A smile from Tolo means he thinks so too.

26 minutes: Adm. Pajak Emails: “Cameron have not had their finest time within the WCs since Italy 90 with one win and ten defeats in 15 video games because the loss towards England.

“Switzerland, then again, are a tricky nut to crack – they not often win or lose inside 90 minutes in WCs (solely 4 defeats in 15 video games have come inside 90 minutes).

“Nonetheless, I’m wondering if having too many gamers on the flawed aspect of the 30s has been an issue for large groups comparable to Argentina, Germany, Croatia and Belgium, whereas England and Spain look extra full of life than any of the aforementioned groups. Are available. Switzerland additionally has a good 30-something Schär.

I’m wondering if the expertise of event soccer could be very helpful for Switzerland. These gamers know work. And a phenomenal sentence there.

He needed to relaxation to ensure he was capable of accumulate his prize from Infantino earlier than the match.

16 minutes: Switzerland look too eager to throw crosses into the field. They’re nonetheless a number of bother but it surely looks as if a intelligent plan.

quarter-hour: Choupo-Moting beat Akanji to a ball on the midway line, permitting him to run on purpose. The Manchester Metropolis defender drops again to place him below stress, that means the shot lacks energy, permitting Sommer to get down to dam it.

12 minutes: Xhaka decides to let fly from 30 yards however sends the ball too excessive over the bar after which for some purpose shouts at his teammates.

10 minutes: Two probabilities for Cameron. An extended go is performed by the Swiss protection for Mbuemo to chase down, he will get there and fires straight at Sommer. The rebounds land on the toes of Toko Ekambi however he fires the ball over from 10 yards.

peep! peep! peep! take it!

Germany’s response to yesterday’s defeat by Japan.

The stadium appears to be half empty. Not what the organizers would need for this group recreation. I’m certain they’ll therapeutic massage the attendance figures.

Carney is an enormous Anguissa fan and so am I. Possibly we must be pals.

Roger Milla receives a certificates from Infantino on the pitch. I hope it goes on his wall. Disgrace on assembly Infantino although.

The Guardian’s personal Karen Carney is at the moment on ITV. She is backing Brazil to win the event. His ideas on England v USA can be revealed later right now.

One of many greats interviewed an amazing.

“My Favourite Early Cook dinner-Off Story,” says Jerry Scott“It was when Ronaldinho was taking part in for Barcelona and he requested to convey the sport ahead attributable to worldwide commitments. This was refused so he introduced the match ahead to 12:05 p.m.

Peter Oh Emails: “I really feel like I’ve one thing in frequent with Dani Alves as a result of I like soccer and so they do not even pay me.”

I additionally got here right here on voluntary foundation.

Banners and targets.

Trying ahead to seeing Gabriel Soo for Switzerland. Nottingham Forest have been very focused on signing the Eintracht Frankfurt participant in the summertime, so we’ll get what they missed out on.

Beginning lineup

Switzerland (4-2-3-1): Summer season; Widmer, Akanji, Elwedi, Rodriguez; Freyler, Family tree Shaqiri, Buna, Vargas; penis

Cameroon (4-3-3): Ona; ear, wolf, castellito, fi; Goet, Hongla, three troubles; Sleep, chopu moting, we’ll lead.

Cameron got here to the stadium singing and dancing. You do not get that from the Swiss.

Sid Lowe has messed round a bit with Dani Alves. Brazil will play later right now…

At the moment of day it appears very unusual to do it minute by minute. The match will begin at 10 am GMT. What was the primary skilled soccer match you attended? I keep in mind Man Metropolis as soon as performed Everton in an 11.30am kick-off (or comparable).

What is occurring right now within the World Cup? The Guardian tells you…

Louis Taylor writes about former Liverpool and West Ham defender Rigobert Tsang, who’s now the Cameroon coach.

Hi there!

There are some massive hitters getting into the World Cup enviornment right now: Brazil, the unemployed Cristiano Ronaldo, to call two. Nonetheless, there are few greater hitters than Xherdan Shaqiri’s calves. The Swiss worldwide gained 109 caps in his 31 years. Expertise is the theme of this Switzerland squad. At 98 and Jan Sommer, 33, to not point out Harris Seferovic, they’ve three worldwide centuries to their identify. He helped them attain the quarter-finals of the Euros by defeating France. They made it out of the group within the final two World Cups, so they’ll are available feeling comparatively assured.

Clearly, the truth that Brazil can be in Group G makes this a must-win recreation for Switzerland and Cameroon. Africans will not be at their historic finest however there may be loads of high quality happening throughout the board. From Andre Ona in internet to Erik Maxime Choupou Motting on the different finish of the pitch, Cameron may give most groups a recreation of their day. They completed third on the Africa Cup of Nations final yr, so that they know progress within the event. They completed forty third on this planet in Qatar, 28 under Switzerland, which is a slight indication of the hole between the 2 groups however I believe the hole is just not as massive as Gianni Infantino’s boffins suppose.

Let’s hope for recreation to get Group G off to begin.

Kick-off: 10am GMT
