Biggest upsets in World Cup history

Uruguay face South Korea in Group H of the World Cup in Qatar.

Two-time tournament winners La Celeste are seen as a dark horse this year, with Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez in fine form, while veteran forwards Luis Suarez and Edinson Cavani will be looking for a final hurrah.

Federico Valverde could be more important than anyone, and the Real Madrid midfielder will be key to dictating the tempo against South Korea. Son Heung-min hopes to play despite suffering a facial fracture in the build-up to the tournament while playing for Tottenham in the Champions League, which means he will wear a face mask – at least during the group stage.

Both teams will be confident that they can not only qualify but also finish top of a wide open group which also includes Ghana and Portugal.

Switzerland set to emulate Arsenal to unlock Granit Xhaka after Cameroon’s painstaking victory

“In a way, Switzerland’s World Cup got off to a good start with a 1-0 win over Cameroon. Going into their second game against Brazil, the Swiss have three points on the board and don’t need a surprise win over the pre-tournament favorites to keep their knockout hopes on track.

“Still, it was a labored victory, with Cameroon the better team in the first half and the misfortune of not being in front at the break, before their European opponents scored through Cameroon-born Breel Embolo early in the game. the second period and then stifle the life of the game.

“No one could legitimately say the Swiss attack were firing on all cylinders, but the answer to unleashing their potential is already within their ranks and is called Granit Xhaka. The captain earned his 107th cap and has been a key cog ever since. his debut in 2011, as proven by playing every minute of their recent Nations League campaign, but it’s time to change his role in the squad to make them legitimate contenders.”

FULL TIME! Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

But that counts for nothing! Switzerland did just enough to beat Cameroon and open Group G with a narrow victory. Breel Embolo is the match winner, scoring against his homeland shortly after half-time and choosing not to celebrate out of respect. After a spirited first half, Switzerland were able to claim victory quietly. They will be full of confidence ahead of their second group game against Brazil, who will face Serbia later.

90+5 min: Block! Cameroon just hang in there! Seferovic seemed to pass on goal after a Cameroonian slip. He cut inside and had the goal gaping, but Castelletto pounced on the shot.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

88 minutes: save! Well, the rhythm of this match is completely dead, but Xhaka closes in from afar as he catches a smooth shot. It skims the surface but Onana handles it well.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

82 mins: LUCK! Swizerland expose space behind the Cameroon defense as Rodriguez plays Rieder down the left. The cross towards the first post is dangerous and Seferovic is not far away, but Nicolas Nkoulou emerges.

Switzerland then demanded a penalty after the ball hit Aboubakar’s hand – but it was clearly accidental.

Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

80 mins: Cameroonian right-back Fai swings in a cross from the wing – it misses everyone but gives Yann Sommer a brief scare. We’ve all seen crosses like this drifting around the far corner, and it wasn’t too far.
