Switzerland vs Cameroon LIVE! World Cup 2022 match stream, latest team news, lineups, TV, prediction today

17

Day four at the World Cup kicks off with an intriguing Group G encounter between one of the surprise packages of last year’s European Championship against a Cameroon side who finished third at a home Africa Cup of Nations.

This group, which also features Brazil and Serbia, is expected to be very competitive, with the runners-up spot behind likely winners the Selecao firmly up for grabs, and victory today for either team could go a long way to securing a coveted last-16 spot. Though both teams are sweating over the fitness of key players, in goalkeeper Yann Sommer and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, respectively.

Switzerland will fancy their chances in a first ever meeting with Cameroon, but the Indomitable Lions are no pushovers and are capable of recording a big early win on this Thursday morning, as they’ve proved at major tournaments in the past.

Switzerland vs Cameroon prediction

Cameroon’s lack of a natural goalscorer coupled with the Swiss’ frugal defence points to a fairly low-scoring game.

Switzerland to win, 1-0.

Cameroon team news

Cameroon are sweating over the fitness of Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa, meanwhile.

The former Fulham midfielder has become a mainstay with Serie A high-flyers Napoli and is a crucial member of Rigobert Song’s first XI.

It will be interesting to see if he is risked for today’s game, having struggled for weeks with a thigh issue.

He did start last week’s final friendly against Panama, however.

Switzerland team news

Switzerland’s main injury worry before the tournament concerned long-time starting goalkeeper Yann Sommer, who had been struggling with an ankle problem.

However, the Borussia Monchengladbach stopper has shaken off that issue and is ready to start today, having made his first appearance for weeks in the warm-up friendly against Ghana.

The same is true of Ricardo Rodriguez, who has been struggling with a knock.

Swiss boss Murat Yakin is not believed to have any of his 26-man squad missing this morning.
