Germany beat Cameroon — FIFA Confederations Cup

Germany beat Cameroon — FIFA Confederations Cup”

The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon were on Sunday ousted from the FIFA Confederations Cup by world champions Germany at the Fisht Stadium in Sochi.

Referee Wilmar Roldán wrongly dismissed Cameroon midfielder Sebastien Siani for a high tackle on Emre Can.

But the damage was really done 14 minutes earlier when Ernest Mabouka was sent off.

"I didn't understand it and I still don't understand it now", fumed Cameroon's Belgian coach Hugo Broos.

"I've known Kerem for a long time, I know how he likes to play", Draxler added.

"I believe the red card contributed to the fact we were able to win with that score", said Werner.

After the lengthy stoppage involving the red card incident, Germany made their numerical advantage count nearly immediately as Werner also got his first Germany goal with an excellent header from Kimmich's fine cross to the back post. There were flickers of a comeback by Cameroon when Vincent Aboubakar's flicked header slipped through Marc-Andre Ter Stegen's raised hands.

The victory in Low's 150th match in charge also maintained his impressive record of reaching at least the semi-finals of every tournament over the last decade.

By safeguarding the top spot in Group B, an unskilled Germany squad playing without most of its 2014 World Cup winners will now stay in the Black Sea hotel of Sochi as well as play Mexico on Thursday.

Chile will face European champions Portugal in Kazan on Wednesday in the first semi-final.

Cameroon were knocked out of the tournament in Russian Federation on Sunday after a 3-1 defeat to Germany left them with one point from three matches, an outcome which Broos said he had been expecting. Loew's side was wasteful, with wing back Joshua Kimmich sending a diving header wide, and largely restricted to attacking down the flanks.

The first half was a poor reflection on both teams and was blighted by stray passes, an absence of precision and a lack of tempo.

"Some of my players have no experience and were nervous because one mistake could have eliminated us", Loew said through a translator.

Taking the lead in slick fashion.

But three minutes into the second period, Germany hit the front as some wonderful build-up play was rewarded by a first global goal for Demirbay.

Cameroon's Fabrice Ondoa in action with Germany's Amin Younes Kai Pfaffenbach. Werner evaded Adolphe Teikeu to meet a cross from Kimmich and score his maiden global goal.

The fleet-footed striker has a sharp eye for goal and justified Joachim Loew's faith with a man-of-the-match performance, which could be rewarded with another start against Mexico. It was the latest by a German goalkeeper in the World Cup warm-up tournament.

With the results, Germany finished top of the Group on seven points, followed by Chile, with five points.

Germany broke the deadlock just two minutes after the interval, though, with a fine team goal.

"It was a different story after the break, he was much more present in the box, that's where he's unsafe, he has a killer instinct".

Cameroon is left to play for classification before returning to Yaounde to begin their preparation for the trip to Uyo to play the Super Eagles in the double headed Russian Federation 2018 World Cup qualifier in August.

"There is a lack of pitches, there is a lack of infrastructure in the country which is why it is impossible in to train good footballers for modern football, so this is our main disadvantage". "We see the proof of that, that there's a lot still to be done".
