The World Cup is in full swing and there’s some drama on the turf

⚽ The World Cup drama is in full swing: Switzerland beat Cameron 1-0 when they faced off earlier at 12pm, after Switzerland’s Breel Embolo scored against Cameroon — his country of birth. The AS Monaco forward was born in Yaonde and moved to Switzerland at a very young age. Despite efforts by the Cameroonian Football Federation to persuade him to change nationalities, he ultimately chose to play for the European nation. Even though this is Embolo’s first World Cup goal, he refused to celebrate it.

On the pitch now: Uruguay v South Korea are playing now as we dispatch.

On deck today: Portugal v Ghana at 6pm, and Brazil v Serbia at 9pm.
