World Cup 2022: Swiss Embolo’s ambivalent emotions after goal against Cameroon, his home country

A very conflicted feeling came over Brela Embolo. The Swiss striker scored his first World Cup goal against Cameroon, his country of birth. After a collective action, the Monegasque tricked André Onan from the center of the penalty area to open the scoring. As if excited, at the moment when the ball hit the net, the Swiss restrained his joy, and a slight grimace appeared on his face.

Embolo waved his hand apologetically. The former Mönchengladbach player was born in Yaoundé and most of his family and many friends live in Cameroon. He reported on his reaction to L’Equipe in the event of a goal: “Of course I’m not going to celebrate. Or I’ll try not to celebrate. But it’s a sport of emotions, it wouldn’t be against my home country. »

Emotions were palpable. Embolo oscillated for months between elections from Switzerland and Cameroon. He arrived at the age of six among the Helvetii before receiving his Swiss passport at the age of fourteen. The player, who trained in Basel, even said that he “had the opportunity to go with Cameroon to the World Cup.” He finally discovered it in 2018 with Nati before opening his head counter this Thursday.

The physical attacker has unlocked a very difficult situation for Switzerland, very annoyed by the indomitable Lions who are trying their best to shine in the last gesture. He then gave way to Haris Seferovic, no doubt with a sense of accomplishment. But without an outpouring of joy.
