For the third consecutive day the World Cup football championship witnessed an Asian team's powerplay.

A keenly contested group H match between South Korea and former champions Uruguay at the Education City Stadium in Doha ended in a goalless draw.

Both the teams shared a point each.

Earlier, in a Group G match, Switzerland beat Cameroon 1-0.

Switzerland edged their way to victory in a lively match against Cameroon thanks to a second-half goal from Breel Embolo, who scored against his country of birth.

However, in the early stages the African side looked most likely to make a breakthrough, Karl Toko Ekambi having an inch-perfect cross taken off his toes by the defender as he raced into the penalty area.

The Swiss too came close, Manuel Akanji heading wide from a corner, but it wasn't until the second half that a goal threat really emerged. Just minutes after the break, a wonderful team move saw Switzerland pass their way from left to right, shifting through the gears, before Xherdan Shaqiri's excellent pull-back put it on a plate for Embolo.

Embolo, born in Cameroon, put Switzerland ahead in the 48th minute.

Embolo's hometown is the Cameroonian capital, Yaounde, but a young Breel left for France with his mother when he was just five years old. After relocating to Switzerland in 2014, he has become a mainstay in the Swiss squad.
