Song considers Embolo as his ‘youngest brother’


AL WAKRAH, Qatar: Cameroon coach Rigobert Song remains proud of Breel Embolo despite the Swiss striker scoring the winning goal against the hosts in Group G at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The Yaounde-born Embolo scored the winner against his native country after 48 minutes of play but refused to celebrate the goal and Song congratulated him and also considered the player a ‘younger brother’.

After the match, Embolo was also seen talking to Song, showing that the two have a close relationship.

“We know each other, he is my youngest brother. We often talk to each other on the phone and I congratulate him.

“It was a fair match. Just because we represent different teams, doesn’t mean we are no longer brothers,” Song said after the match.

Meanwhile, Song also admitted that his team made some mistakes that contributed to his team’s defeat, however, he was proud that Embolo scored a goal in the World Cup.

“He didn’t celebrate his goal, but it’s all part of football. I am happy and proud of it.

“He is with the Swiss national team and I also want a player with his talent in my team, but this is life.

“For us what is important is how we perform on the pitch, what we do better, rather than worrying about who is scoring against us.”

In the match, Cameroon dominated early in the game and had three good scoring chances but they failed to make an impact in the second half.

“Generally in football, when you dominate the game you also need to score goals. It is not enough to manage to control the ball only.

“We missed the last finish, we were very excited to win but failed to score,” said Song. -AGENCIES
