Cameroon, Australia draw 1-1 at Confederations Cup

Australia can only guarantee passage with a two-goal win over the South American champions, a result they've never managed over such a high quality opponent in a competitive match. "Yes, it's very easy to say you haven't got players who score (but) you have to find them". "There were at least a couple at corners were [Cameroon] had a pretty good hold on our players".

Germany, with only three players from its World Cup-winning team, played catch-up most of time against the more experienced Chileans, but earned the draw after Lars Stindl scored from close range in a counterattack just before halftime.

The Socceroos went down 3-2 against world champions Germany after a battling display in their Group B opener in Sochi on Monday, while the Indomitable Lions were beaten 2-0 by Chile in Moscow.

Like his counterpart in the Cameroon dugout, Australia manager Ange Postecoglou has also assembled a young, inexperienced side.

Mark Milligan penalty on the hour mark ensured a point for Australia.

The Australian team is now at coalface to beat Brazil and Germany, but Degenek believes that the team can get through them due to their formation.

Sainsbury certainly sees a comparison with the Socceroos, seeing Chile as an inspiration for his own lofty goals for the national team.

With first-choice shot-stopper Manuel Neuer recovering from foot surgery, Loew is expected to again rotate his goalkeeper with Paris Saint-Germain's Kevin Trapp set to start.

Broos called on organisers to sort things out for next year's World Cup, saying he had twice been angered by logistical glitches.

Nothing short of a victory by a two goal margin will keep their hopes of progressing to the semi-finals alive. 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 global appearance.

"They're the best side in this tournament for me".

In turn, the attack of Australia is ready for the tournament by 100%.

"I know my role".

Chile's captain, Inter Milan defender Gary Medel, is fit despite limping out of the draw against Germany with cramp.

"It is not just about football, he is a great Australian, who transcends sport", said Postecoglou.

Chile's coach Juan Antonio Pizzi has hinted goalkeeper Claudio Bravo could play for the first time since picking up a calf injury playing for Manchester City in April.

Chile took the lead in the sixth minute, when Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez gave a strong looking side the shock lead through Shkodran Mustafi's mistake, with the forward becoming his country's all-time leading goal scorer.
