Life sometimes throws plots that even the best screenwriters can’t write. And it happens that when he makes his debut in the World Cup, he faces the national team of the country he was born and spent his childhood in before flying elsewhere in search of his fortune. It’s a strange fate for Embolo, and he played today at Al Janoub Stadium against Cameroon, who was born in Yaounde exactly 25 years ago on February 14th. Yes, because after he left Africa with his mother and his brother in 2003, he acquired Swiss citizenship in the meantime and decided to play for Switzerland. Raised him with him.

I was. His 1-0 scoring goal saw the Swiss formation bend over the African resistance. His goal, which Embolo, who has not forgotten his roots, did not want to celebrate was, as a whole, to what he still considers his country, or at least his one of his two countries. As a sign of respect.

Yes, for Cameroon, Switzerland. Because the road started to get steeper after the knockout with and: Son0,g’s men really need to score points against Brazil and Serbia in order to hope for passage to the next round. Opponent. And it may have been Embolo, the prodigal son who found his fortune in Europe, that shattered Cameroonian dreams of the world. However, he still wants a different ending. After all, it will always remain his Cameroon.
