FIFA Confederations Cup: Germany beat Cameroon

FIFA Confederations Cup: Germany beat Cameroon

The move has paid off with forward Lars Stindl scoring in both Monday's 3-2 win over Australia and Thursday's 1-1 draw with Chile leaving him as the Confed Cup's top-scorer.

Cameroon had Ernest Mabouka sent off in controversial fashion on 64 minutes for a risky tackle on Liverpool's Emre Can.

Germany was leading through Kerem Demirbay's 48th-minute strike when a case of mistaken identity halfway through the second half that replays were meant to eradicate left the African champions bemused and irritated.

Germany extended its lead two minutes later courtesy of a diving header from Timo Werner.

"At some point in time I'll get replaced by "John the pragmatist" and you can all be happy and revel in it", he said.

The 23-year-old made his second consecutive start for Joachim Low's side in Sochi on Sunday, lining up alongside Sebastian Rudy in the middle of the park.

A fumble by Marc-Andre ter Stegen gave Cameroon a glimmer of hope on 78 minutes as Aboubakar's header flew through the German goalkeeper's fingers.

He added: "There have been ups and downs, we often got to semi-finals, but never made it but the win in the Maracana (2014 World Cup final) was a crowning moment".

But their hopes of a comeback were effectively extinguished when Mabouka was eventually dismissed for a risky challenge on Can, referee Wilmar Roldan first booking Siani and then producing a red card for the midfielder before reviewing the footage a second time on the protests of Cameroon players.

James Troisi steered Australia ahead on 42 minutes in Moscow, but Chile replied through half-time substitute Rodriguez on 67 minutes to advance as Group B runners-up behind Germany.

Underdogs Australia played with more function in the new Otkrytiye Arena in Moscow - in front of plenty of vacant seats once again - compared to in their previous games versus Germany as well as Cameroon.

A point proved enough for Chile to reach the last four, where they will meet Portugal at the Kazan Arena on Wednesday (June 28).

"I won't use the same team we had against Chile, those who play will have earned their chances", he explained.

Former Everton midfielder Tim Cahill will reach a century of caps for Australia if he features in the game.

The South American champions opted for a double change at the start of the second half, as Pablo Hernandez and Martin Rodriguez were introduced.
