Cameroon, Australia hopes hit after 1-1 draw

26 June 2017

The Porto forward was inaccurate with a close-range header 12 minutes from the end of a display he will live to regret if Cameroon can not ensure progression in their final group game against world champions Germany.

"But again we'll need to be on our highest level if we are to beat them, and we have to beat them to keep up our chances to go further than the first round. One lesson about the first game [against Germany] was that, if anything, we probably needed to concentrate a bit more on ourselves and what we are trying to achieve and not pay too much respect to the opposition". There will be pressure but it is our job.

A neat pass behind Bailey Wright saw Cameroon hit the byline, target man Vincent Aboubakar waiting for the cut back.

But they did break the deadlock on the stroke of half-time as Zambo Anguissa latched on to Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui's lofted throughball to flick over Ryan, whose decision to come off his line proved ill-advised.

The Olympique de Marseille midfielder, who spurned a call-up to play for Cameroon when they won the African Nations Cup in Gabon at the start of the year, missed out on a second in the first 10 minutes of the second half.

Cameroon should have doubled their advantage in the 56th minute, but Aboubakar fired wide of the upright from close range after some good work by Christian Bassogog.

With an hour gone, Milligan tucked away a penalty after Alex Gersbach was brought down in the area by Cameroon right-back Ernest Mabouka.

President Donald Trump's education secretary, Betsy DeVos, is a leading supporter of such "school choice" plans. The foundation took the Murrs' case for free to seek legal clarity in such "parcel as a whole" takings claims.

Australia coach Ange Postecoglou threw on Tim Cahill, the country s all-time leading scorer with 48 goals, but the 37-year-old could not break the deadlock on his 99th worldwide appearance.

Can The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon pick themselves up after falling to Group A co-favorites Chile and gain their first win in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russian Federation?

When Australia's equaliser came, it was shortly after they nearly went two behind.

The defender finally said that he expects the game to be physical and the opposite team to be focused on attacking. "I think we controlled large parts of it", Postecoglou said. "Our players and myself were shouting to stop the game but there was no reaction on the side".

The game was like the show 24: entertaining, violent, fast-paced and utterly meaningless in the grand scheme of things. That's unacceptable and why I lost my temper.

While there is always the caveat that the Confederations Cup is a "Micky Mouse" Cup and that it draws little resonance with the football world, the fact that the Socceroos now appear likely to be dumped out at the group stage does start to pose serious questions of Ange Postecoglou and his troops.

Peralta completed Mexico's comeback in the Fisht Stadium by meeting Javier Aquino's cutback and sweeping a shot past goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic. "The best we can do is put our mind to this game and get three points".
