PHOTOS: Breel Embolo refuses to celebrate after scoring a goal for Switzerland against his country of origin, Cameroon at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar

Breel Embolo refuses to celebrate after scoring a goal for Switzerland against his country of origin, Cameroon at the FIFA World Cup.

While a fourth said: 'Well done Breel Embolo for not ‘celebrating’ that goal against Cameroon. That’s respect for where you were born. You will still get grief from the haters for it though.'

Embolo, who has scored eight goals in 23 games for Monaco this term, started his career with Swiss club FC Basel having emerged from their youth ranks.

After registering 31 goals in 91 appearances he secured a move to Schalke in 2016, where he spent three years before heading to fellow Bundesliga outfit Borussia Monchengladbach.

The forward only left Monchengladbach for Monaco in the summer after completing a £12million switch to the French club.

Fans were quick to praise Embolo over his mark of 'respect' for Cameroon, taking to Twitter to express their admiration for his muted celebration.

One wrote: 'Embolo was born in Cameroon? Much respect for that celebration'.

Another posted: 'Respect for #Embolo #FIFAWorldCup for not fully celebrating the goal. That shows some love'.

A third commented: 'Embolo scored for Switzerland and didn’t celebrate because he was born in Cameroon. Class'. Switzerland's Breel Embolo refused to celebrate after giving them the lead against Cameroon at the World Cup - as it was the country he was born in.

The Monaco forward broke the deadlock three minutes into the second half of Switzerland's opening fixture on Thursday, but he chose against celebrating it and instead raised both hands while appearing to apologise.

One of these promising strikers is Breel Embolo who was born in Yaoundé. Embolo arrived in Europe at the age of 4. He hesitated for a long time before opting for the Swiss national team and this first game of the world championship is bound to be special.

"It's not bad pressure, it is a positive thing. The World Cup is already something huge, representing your country, and now facing my home country makes it a little bit more special. The World Cup is already so big Cameroon will not make the pressure higher," Embolo said. Breel Embolo who spends all his vacations in Cameroon knows several players on Rigobert Song's selection. He has already promised that he would not celebrate a possible goal against his country of birth.

As for the statements from Samuel Eto'o predicting the final victory of Cameroon, he prefers to have fun

"Why not? The ball is round, and it should be the goal for every team coming here. Just taking part to a World Cup is not enough anymore and everyone tries to be the best and the best is to win," Embolo said.

While Cameroon face Switzerland, the other match in Group G on Tuesday will pit the great favorite Brazil, with 5 world titles to their credit, against Serbia.

Embolo is playing in his second World Cup, and was also part of the Swiss squad in the last two European Championships.

Switzerland lost in the Round of 16 at the past two World Cups and then broke through that barrier at the Euros last year.

Brazil and Serbia are also in Group G, paired with Switzerland once again after the 2018 World Cup group stage.

Then, the Swiss first drew 1-1 with five-time champions Brazil, and beat Serbia 2-1.
