The Swiss are among the outsiders who are worth keeping an eye on at the World Cup. Getting past Cameroon, that’s their first assignment.
Switzerland has built up a reputation as a giant killer in recent years. At the previous European Championship, it eliminated France and only folded for Spain after penalties. In the Nations League, it could – even outdoors – sometimes measure up to Spain and beat Portugal at home. There may therefore also be a good story in the World Cup. Then it must first do what is necessary against the other teams in group G. No evidence.
The Swiss lost their last friendly match to Ghana (2-0), a dress rehearsal that was to serve as preparation for the duel with Cameroon. With Martin Hongla (ex-Antwerp) and Samuel Oum Gouet (KV Mechelen), a few Cameroonians have a link with the Belgian league. Of the two, Hongla has by far the greatest playing chances. Cameroon earned its World Cup spot in a double encounter with Algeria.
The winner of this game immediately takes the lead in group G, because it is the first group match in the group. Not a superfluous luxury with Brazil also in the group, which will play against Serbia on Thursday evening.
