Watch: Angry Fans Attack Breel Embolo’s Dad’s house After He Scored Against Cameroon

After Breel Embolo scored against his native Cameroon, angry Cameroonian supporters reportedly stormed his father’s home.

Embolo scored Switzerland’s lone goal in their World Cup play against Cameroon which gave his country of origin a slow start.

Embolo, who was born in Yaounde and later moved to Switzerland with his mother, raised his arms up after scoring and refused to celebrate in honour of his home country.

The Monaco striker remarked after the match, “I’m very proud of my first World Cup goal, but it feels weird for me”.

According to reports, Embolo’s parents’ home in Cameroon has been attacked by a group of irate football fans, as his father is still base in the country.

In their World Cup match in Group G on Thursday, Switzerland defeated Cameroon 1-0, thanks to a first half goal from Embolo.

Embolo, a player for Switzerland’s national team, was born in Cameroon but as a professional footballer, that didn’t stop him from scoring against the country and earning Switzerland three points.

The Swiss striker, who was born in Cameroon, chose not to celebrate his goal as a “show of respect for his motherland,” as many have put it.

Meanwhile, many people have denounced the attack on the striker’s family in Cameroon, saying it should serve as a wake-up call for African leaders and sport authorities to make the continent’s sport extremely appealing in order to entice talented players to stay and proudly represent their motherland.

The 2022 World Cup is currently taking place in Qatar, and a huge list of players who were born in Africa are playing for non-African nations.

Embolo relocated to France with his family before settling in Switzerland. Embolo made his professional debut for Basel in March 2014 after progressing through their youth divisions. He won the Swiss Super League in each of his first three seasons before transferring to Schalke 04 for an initial €20 million.

He sustained an ankle injury shortly after joining the Bundesliga team that kept him from playing for close to a year.
