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.

Key occasions

45 minutes: Solely two minutes added on.

44 minutes: How lengthy will likely be added on earlier than half time? I can’t keep in mind any stoppages of word, so … eight minutes?

42 minutes: Elvedi is concerned down the opposite finish as he fails to take care of a cross however makes up for it my deflecting Choupo-Moting’s shot behind for a nook. Mbeumo takes it however Switzerland flick the ball away.

40 minutes: Castelletto is dispossessed by Embolo 30 yards from his personal aim. Embolo finally ends up by on aim however Castelletto is set to get again and will get there simply in time to sort out the striker and ship the ball out for a nook.

The ensuing set-piece finds Elvedi eight yards out, he stoops to move at aim however sends his effort simply extensive.

36 minutes: Widmer is within the motion down the opposite finish, sliding in to beat Toto-Ekambi to Fai’s cross contained in the six-yard field and save a sure aim.

Fai goes into the guide moments later for a needlessly late problem on Elvedi.

34 minutes: Switzerland beat the press and get the ball to Widmer on the proper, permitting him to flash a cross alongside the six-yard line however Cameroon get it clear.

32 minutes: Andros Townsend on co-comms says you may decide a group’s confidence by how their full-backs are enjoying. Cameroon’s a enjoying excessive and extensive, for those who are questioning.

30 minutes: Neat play from Mbeumo and Choupo-Moting all the time the previous to slide a move by for Hongla, who hits a scuffed shot throughout Sommer. The goalkeeper can solely palm it out in entrance of him however fortunately for the goalkeeper there’s a defender to swipe clear.

Daniel makes an attention-grabbing level. Fifa can’t get many calls proper. I concern they don’t even think about this type of factor.

@Will_Unwin Purple 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 totally different?

28 minutes: Cameroon get a aim kick regardless of it wanting like Tolo is the person to get the final contact. The wry smile from Tolo implies he thinks so, too.

26 minutes: Admir Pajic emails: “Cameroon haven’t had the most effective time at WCs since Italia 90 with one victory and ten defeats in 15 video games because the defeat towards England.

“Switzerland, however, are robust nut to crack – they hardly ever both win or lose inside 90 minutes at WCs (simply 4 defeats in 15 video games got here inside 90 minutes).

“Nonetheless, I’ve been pondering if having too many gamers on the mistaken facet of 30s has been a downside for large groups comparable to Argentina, Germany, Croatia and Belgium whereas England and Spain look extra vigorous than any of aforementioned groups. Switzerland have a truthful Schär of 30-somethings as nicely.”

I ponder if the expertise of event soccer may be very helpful for Switzerland. These gamers know how one can get the job accomplished. And a beautiful pun in there.

24 minutes: Cameroon transfer the ball out to Mbuemo on the proper, he cuts in and seems to be set to shoot however Switzerland shut him down. The assault earns Cameroon a nook. Mbuemo sends it into the field but it surely misses everybody.

22 minutes: Switzerland take slightly danger a the again with some brief passes. Elvedi doesn’t put sufficient tempo on his backpass to Sommer who simply will get to the ball a break up second earlier than Mbuemo and chips it again to his centre-back.

20 minutes: A few crosses are despatched into the field and cleared. The ball makes it out to Xhaka who seems to be to dink a ball excessive however he places slightly an excessive amount of on the move and it goes out for a aim kick.

18 minutes: “Thanks for the fantastic protection from sunny climbs. (Lounge?),” asks Invoice Hargreaves. I definitely am right here, with my very untidy desk. “Is likely to be my oversight, however I can’t see Roger Milla’s title on the team-sheet. Is that this a typo?”

He needed to be rested to be sure that he was capable of take his prize from Infantino earlier than the match.

16 minutes: Switzerland appear very eager to whip crosses into the field. They’re but to trigger an excessive amount of bother but it surely seems to be like a crafty plan.

15 minutes: Choupo-Moting beats Akanji to a the ball on the midway line, permitting him to run by on aim. The Manchester Metropolis defender will get again to place him underneath strain, which means the shot lacks energy, permitting Sommer to get all the way down to cease it.

14 minutes: Vargas does a step over and drops a shoulder on the left earlier than pinging a low cross into the hall of uncertainty however there just isn’t a Switzerland participant in sight, permitting Cameroon to clear.

There may be, nonetheless, a person in inexperienced who does his finest to assist Switzerland by slicing his tried clearance however Onana is there to catch it.

4 minutes: No scarcity of shade on the pitch, which is slightly annoying. There may be a little bit of noise within the stands however not an excessive amount of because of the wholesome quantity of empty seats we will see across the facet.

2 minutes: A optimistic begin from the Swiss who transfer the ball up the pitch rapidly to earn a nook. Shaqiri swings it in from the proper, it’s low in the direction of the close to publish and causes slightly little bit of confusion earlier than Cameroon swipe it clear.

Kick off

Peep! Peep! Peep! Right here we go!

The response from Germany to yesterday’s defeat to Japan.

It sounds and seems to be just like the stadium his half empty. Not what the organisers would need for this group sport. I’m certain they may therapeutic massage the attendance figures.

Carney is a giant Anguissa fan and so am I. Perhaps we must be pals.

Roger Milla will get a certificates from Infantino on the pitch. I hope it goes on his wall. Disgrace about having to fulfill Infantino, although.

The Guardian’s very personal Karen Carney is at the moment on ITV. She is backing Brazil to win the event. Her views on England v USA will likely be out later right this moment.

One in every of the greats interviews one in all the greats.

“My favorite early kick off story,” says Gerry Scott, “was when Ronaldinho was enjoying for Barcelona and so they requested the sport be introduced ahead because of worldwide commitments. That was refused so that they introduced the match ahead till 12:05am.”

Peter Oh emails: “I really feel like I actually have obtained one thing in widespread with Dani Alves ‘cos I like soccer and so they don’t pay me both.”

I’m additionally right here on a volunteer foundation.

Bangers and targets.

Wanting ahead to seeing Djibril Sow for Switzerland. Nottingham Forest had been very taken with signing the Eintracht Frankfurt participant within the summer time, so we’ll discover what they missed out on.

Beginning lineups

Switzerland (4-2-3-1): Sommer; Widmer, Akanji, Elvedi, Rodríguez; Freuler, Xhaka; Shaqiri, Sow, Vargas; Embolo

Cameroon (4-3-3): Onana; Tolo, Nkoulou, Castelletto, Fai; Gouet, Hongla, Zambo Anguissa; Mbeumo, Choupo-Moting, Toko Ekambi.

Cameroon got here into the stadium singing and dancing. You don’t get that from the Swiss.

Sid Lowe has had slightly natter with Dani Alves. Brazil play later right this moment …

It appears very odd to be doing a minute-by-minute at the moment of day. The match kicks off at 10am GMT. What’s the earliest you might have been to an expert soccer match? I keep in mind Man Metropolis as soon as performed Everton in an 11.30am kick-off (or related).

What’s taking place right this moment within the World Cup? Let the Guardian let you know …

Louise Taylor has written about former Liverpool and West Ham defender Rigobert Music, who’s now the Cameroon coach.

Howdy!

There are some massive hitters getting into the World Cup fray right this moment: Brazil, the unemployed Cristiano Ronaldo, to title however two. There are few massive hitters, nonetheless, than Xherdan Shaqiri’s calves. The Swiss worldwide has 109 caps to his title in his 31 years. Expertise is a theme of this Switzerland squad; there are three gamers with a century of worldwide appearances to their title, not to say Haris Seferovic on 98 and 33-year-old Yann Sommer. It helped them defeat France within the Euros to achieve the quarter finals. They made it out of the group on the previous two World Cups, so will come into this sense comparatively assured.

Clearly, the actual fact Brazil are additionally in Group G makes this a must-win sport for Switzerland and Cameroon. The Africans should not at their historic finest however there’s a lot of high quality operating all through the facet. From Andre Onana in internet to the in kind Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting at the opposite finish of the pitch, Cameroon may give most groups a sport of their day. The completed third in final 12 months’s Africa Cup of Nations, so that they know how one can progress in a event. They arrive in Qatar ranked forty third on this planet, 28 beneath Switzerland, which is a slight indication of the distinction between the 2 groups however I feel the hole just isn’t as giant as Gianni Infantino’s boffins assume.

Let’s hope for a respectable sport to get Group G off to a nice begin.

Kick-off: 10am GMT
