Watch.. A player refuses to celebrate his goal against his country of origin

Switzerland’s Brielle Embolo broke the deadlock three minutes into the second half of the tournament Opening match with Cameroon In the World Cup, today, Thursday, after scoring a goal against his country of origin, but he chose not to celebrate and raised his hands, and instead seemed to apologize.

Fans were quick to praise Embolo, who is of Cameroonian descent, for his respect for his country of origin, taking to Twitter to express their admiration for his silent celebration.

Embolo, 25, was born in the Cameroonian capital, Yaoundé, before moving to France with her mother at the age of five, where she met her future Swiss husband.

But soon after, the family moved to Basel, where Embolo practiced his profession as a young player, and as a result, he obtained Swiss citizenship in 2014, according to a report by the Daily Mail.

After scoring 31 goals in 91 appearances, he secured a move to Schalke 04 in 2016, where he spent three years before heading to Borussia Mönchengladbach.

The striker left Monchengladbach for Monaco only in the summer, after completing a £12m transfer to the French club.
