When will Switzerland vs Cameroon play for the World Cup in Qatar?
The match will be played at the Al Janoub Stadium, located in the city of Al Wakrah, 15 kilometers from the center of Doha, with a capacity of 40,000 spectators, starting at 7:00 in Argentina and with the refereeing of the Argentine Facundo Tello, assisted by his compatriots Ezequiel Brailovsky and Gabriel Chade.
Switzerland and Cameroon, along with Serbia (the fourth team in the group), are aware that with a power like Brazil, with a team full of stars and for many the best candidate for the title, they will have to play for second place in the round of 16 final and therefore the comparisons between these teams will be fundamental.
The Helvetians are playing their 12th World Cup, fifth in a row, and the furthest they have gone is to the quarterfinals, 1934, 1938 and 1954, that last time at home.
The European team counts veterans Granit Xhaka (Arsenal of England and U-17 world champion) and Xherdan Shaqiri (born in Kosovo and playing for Chicago Fire in MLS) as stars, and they got used to participating in big competitions.
Since 2006, they only did not attend the Eurocup in Poland and Ukraine in 2012, and only in South Africa 2010 did they stay in the group stage, despite beating Spain in their debut, which would later be world champion.
