Key Events

Cristiano Ronaldo 's Portugal will get their World Cup underway against Ghana at 4pm as the former Manchester United forward takes to the pitch for the first time since his Old Trafford exit.

The forward has been heavily talked about since arriving in Qatar, but will now be able to make headlines on the pitch. Brazil, one of the tournament favourites, will also be in action as they gear up to take on Serbia on Thursday evening. Neymar and co are looking to follow in the footsteps of Ronaldo, Ronaldinho and co.

The World Cup has already seen its fair share of shocks with Germany and Argentina coming unstuck against Japan and Saudi Arabia respectively, and South Korea are aiming to get points on the board against a dangerous Uruguay team. In the day's early kick-off, a goal from Breel Embolo was enough for Switzerland to sneak a victory against Cameroon.

Where England are concerned, there continues to be concerns over Harry Kane's fitness ahead of the Three Lions taking on the USA on Friday. We'll keep you up to date throughout the date on the latest news as well as the fallout from yesterday's games.

Video footage of the incident captured a brief fight between the rival sets of fans, clad in their nation's kits, at the Al Bidda Park in Doha - one of FIFA's fan zones in the Qatari capital, which is designed to encourage different teams coming together to mingle.

Son fit to feature

Son Heung-min has been training in a mask after suffering an eye socket injury, but the Spurs man is fit to start.

The 30-year-old scored at the 2014 and 2018 World Cups. Can he repeat the feat in Qatar?

Van Gaal's generous offer

When Netherlands manager Louis van Gaal spoke to the press, one journalist told the boss he was an idol of his.

Van Gaal responded by promising a hug to the reporter, and he was true to his word.

Dembele's stadium verdict

France winger Ousmane Dembele says his experience of the Qatar World Cup atmosphere can't compare to some of the club venues in which he's played, amid ongoing confusion surrounding stadiums and capacities.

The Barcelona star says he was happy with the French support for Tuesday's 4-1 win over Australia, but clearly didn't think much of what he heard around the stadium as a whole.

Hazard criticises Germany protest

Eden Hazard has told the Germany team to "focus on football" following their protest over not being allowed to wear the OneLove armband.

Germany, England and Wales were among the nations that opted against wearing the armband in Qatar in the eleventh hour due to the threat that their respective captains could receive yellow cards for doing so.

The late decision from the respective football associations has been heavily criticised.

11:56KEY EVENT

FULL-TIME: Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

It's all over in the first game of the day.

Breel Embolo's goal made the difference for Switzerland in a well-matched game.

Cameroon now face an uphill struggle, with games against Brazil and Serbia to come.

11:55Tom Victor

Almost a second for Switzerland

Seferovic has to make it two, but no! Heroic last-ditch block from Castelletto to deny the forward.

11:50Tom Victor

Six minutes added

Cameroon have six minutes of added time to find a goal.

Switzerland have made another change in the meantime, with Ricardo Rodriguez making way for Eray Comert

11:49KEY EVENT

Team news from Uruguay v South Korea

Uruguay have left Edinson Cavani on the bench for their World Cup opener against South Korea.

There's still plenty of talent in attack, though, with Man Utd youngster Facundo Pellistri joining Luis Suarez and Darwin Nunez in the front three.

Spurs midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur will also be looking to make an impact, with club colleague Son Heung-min starting for the opposition

11:42Tom Victor

Another Cameroon change

Bryan Mbeumo's race is run, with Moumi Ngamaleu on for the final few minutes.

11:33Tom Victor

Time for Aboubakar

Vincent Aboubakar has just over 15 minutes plus stoppage time to make an impact.

Former Spurs forward Georges-Kevin Nkoudou is also on, with Choupo-Moting and Toko Ekambi the men to depart.

11:31Tom Victor

Triple change for Switzerland

Djibril Sow, Xherdan Shaqiri and goalscorer Breel Embolo are making way for Switzerland,

Fabian Frei, Noah Okafor and Haris Seferovic are the three men to come off the bench.

11:28Tom Victor

Cameroon ring the changes

Song turns to his bench, but it's not for any of his forwards.

Gael Ondoua is on, replacing Martin Hongla for the final quarter of the game.

11:27Tom Victor

Onana keeps Cameroon in it

Cameroon have goalkeeper Andre Onana to thank for still being in the game.

It's almost a carbon copy of Embolo's goal, with Ruben Vargas on the end of a low ball into the box.

It's so nearly 2-0 moments later as Shaqiri swings in the corner, but Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa gets a vital touch with Embolo waiting for a tap-in.

11:24Tom Victor

Elvedi in the book

Choupo-Moting spins away from Elvedi, and the Swiss defender is willing to stop the counter and take the booking.

That's the first booking of the game for Murat Yakin's team.

11:18Tom Victor

Choupo-Moting goes alone

There's no real support for Choupo-Moting near the byline, but he ghosts past Akanji and wins a corner.

Bryan Mbeumo's deliveries have been dangerous at times but on this occasion Sommer gets it clear.

11:11Tom Victor

Muted celebration from Embolo

It was a rather subdued celebration from Embolo, who could have played for Cameroon.

The striker was born in Yaounde, but moved to Switzerland as a child and represented the European nation at age-group and senior level.

11:08KEY EVENT

GOAL! Switzerland 1-0 Cameroon

It took less than three minutes for Switzerland to get themselves ahead.

Breel Embolo has the goal, tucking home after being left alone to meet a low cross from Xherdan Shaqiri.

How will Cameroon react?

11:05Tom Victor

Back underway

Can Switzerland or Cameroon find a second-half breakthrough?

10:58Tom Victor

Cameroon on Song defensively

Cameroon have begun solidly at the back, and perhaps we shouldn't be surprised considering who's in charge.

Manager Rigobert Song had an impressive defensive career, including stints with Liverpool and West Ham, and his team conceded just five goals in eight qualifying games.

10:49KEY EVENT

HALF-TIME: Switzerland 0-0 Cameroon

Cameroon have had more sights of goal in the first half, but they haven't been able to find a way past Yann Sommer.

Goalless at the break.

10:47Tom Victor

Big chance spurned by Akanji

Switzerland should really be ahead.

Manuel Akanji rushes onto a corner from the left and wins the header unchallenged. Any sort of purchase would surely have brought a goal, but the ball skims off his head and goes wide.

That's the best chance for either side so far.

10:40Tom Victor

Casteletto comes up big

Breel Embolo gets a sight of goal, but Jean-Charles Castelletto denies him with a perfectly-timed challenge. He had to get that one right.

10:36Tom Victor

Vidmer to the rescue

Another dangerous break for Cameroon, with Karl Toko Ekambi inches from connecting with a Collins Fai cross.

Once again Silvan Vidmer gets Switzerland out of danger, though, with the defender at full stretch to deny his opponent.

Moments later, Fai picks up the first booking of the game for a foul on Nico Elvedi.

10:31Tom Victor

Let-off for Sommer

A nervy moment for the Swiss keeper as he spills a low cross-shot, but Silvan Widmer sweeps up to put the ball behind.

Xherdan Shaqiri almost puts his team in trouble from the resulting corner, but Switzerland get the ball away.

10:27Tom Victor

Some close calls

Cameroon still carrying the bigger attacking threat. Switzerland not really at the races so far.

Yann Sommer has been the busier of the keepers (
