FULL TIME
A huge win for Switzerland! They beat Cameroon 1-0 in their Group G opener.
90'+5
GOOD DEFENDING FROM CASTELLETTO
Haris Seferovic breaks forward and cuts inside to put the final nail in the coffin, but Castelletto puts in a great block to give Cameroon the smallest glimmer of hope.
90'+4
SOMMER CLAIMS A HIGH BALL
Cameroon desperately trying to get something here, with tough games against Brazil and Serbia to come. They pump the ball into the box hoping for something to come from it, but Sommer comes to collect with ease.
90'+2
SWITZERLAND WIN A CORNER
Nouhou Solo matches Noah Okafor's pace to keep up to sweep up and stop the forward from breaking beyond the Cameroon defence, but he awkwardly puts the ball behind for a corner under no pressure.

SWITZERLAND WANT A PENALTY
The ball drops in the penalty box and it seems to brush the arm of Vincent Aboubakar, but not enough for the referee.

UNBELIEVABLE DEFENDING FROM ANGUISSA!
He gets a header on target down one end, before producing a game-changing interception down the other! Shaqiri delivers a dangerous corner and Embolo is ready to tap it in at the back post, but Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa gets his foot in the way first to put Embolo off.
66'
BIG CHANCE SWITZERLAND!
Andre Onana keeps Cameroon in the game! Shaqiri once again drives down the right wing and pulls back a low cross, this time for Vargas who has his fierce shot saved.
