Thursday the 22nd June, Cameroon met Australia for the first time ine the Confederations Cup, the banter off the field made this an interesting encounter…
Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou has laughed off Cameroon’s idea of Australian side football style when the teams meet for the first time. https://t.co/WnoH9lcWc9
Cameroon’s Siani: “Sometimes the team that is supposedly the weakest can upset the odds so we are not going to be complacent.” #ConfedCup https://t.co/IpKQFA9cmV
The Indomitable Lions from Cameroon could however could not overcome the Socceroos who are supposedly the weakest side at the Tournament, this is the Confederations Cup…..everyone of these teams are Champions in their own right so there are no weak teams in my eyes.
Just before half-time The Indomitable Lions broke the deadlock 1-0 but on the hour mark (60th minute) Milligan scored the equaliser for the Austalians, 1-1…this was the final score as they both shared the spoils.
A game I was looking forward to was the 3rd and 4th placed sides according to the Fifa rankings, Germany vs Chile both teams looking to make it 2 wins out of 2 at this years tournament. The last time these two sides met, Germany beat Chile by a single goal……however with Arsenals Talisman in the Chile sqaud and a young German side this stat might just change.
It was Sanchez who opened the scoring but Germany found the equaliser just before the break…..to be honest I really expected mor out of this game there were a few intense moments at the end which got me off my feet but other than that a rather dull affair.
The interesting thing about Thursdays results though is that all 4 teams still have a chance of advancing to the semi-finals going into the last games of the group stages. All games are to be played at the same time so come Sunday afternoon we are hopefully going to be in for an exciting day in Russia.
