Switzerland and Cameroon were deadlocked at 0-0 by halftime in their FIFA World Cup Group G match on Thursday with the Africans having carved out the clearest opportunities at the Al Janoub Stadium.

Switzerland's Yann Sommer makes a save

Karl Toko Ekambi, Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting and Martin Hongla all had chances as Cameroon hit their opponents on the break.

But Ekambi’s shot went over the bar and Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer was equal to the other two attempts as both teams headed to their dressingrooms at the half-time whichtle with no goals to show for.
