After a first half in which Rigobert Song’s men tactically and physically outplayed the Swiss, a quick attack by the Swiss ended with the ball in an unbeatable area for Breel Donald Embolo, who shot past Onana to open the account in a vital clash for the interests of both sides ahead of the Round of 16 of the World Cup.
The stands turned into a party, players like Xhaka and Shaquiri exploded with joy and the whole of Switzerland raised their fists for their first World Cup goal, but Breel Donald Embolo didn’t even seem to flinch. His arms in the air with his palms outstretched concealed a story that partly reflects the current state of affairs in the world of national teams.
Goals that hurt: Why didn’t Embolo celebrate his goal against Cameroon?
Born on February 14, 1997, in Yaoundé, Cameroon, Breel Donald Embolo is one of those sons of Africa in various European teams. The young Swiss striker arrived in the country when he was just a child, at which time he began a career linked to the Swiss youth teams.
There was no celebration thanks to the Cameroonian blood that runs through the veins of Breel Donald Embolo who, out of respect, did not celebrate his goal against the country where he was born 25 years ago.
