FIFA Confederation Cup: Cameroon start on losing note

Rita Gibson | 19 June, 2017, 15:04

Russia's head of state had demanded that the "Sbornaya" play like warriors, but they didn't to against New Zealand, who lacked both shape and ambition in their game.

Can The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon overcome tremendous odds and gain their first win in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russian Federation? And now it's not unreasonable to confirm the hypothesis that newcomers are always lucky.

Along with Chile and Cameroon, Group B includes Germany and Australia that will play their match in Sochi on Monday. It's true it caused distress but that's because we are not used to it. The South American side is not in the best form, only winning two out of its last five games.

The South Americans made a blistering start and nearly took the lead inside the first minute, but striker Vargas' shot crashed back off the post, before Jose Fuenzalida saw his low effort well saved by Cameroon keeper Fabrice Ondoa just seconds later.

It happened in a contentious decision where the VAR decided Eduardo Vargas was offside when he scored.

At the restart, Cameroon stifled the Chileans and were in total control.

Little by little, however, the Africans managed to erode the momentum of the Chileans.

Germany: no punishment for UK, but EU exit good for no one
Once agreement has been made in this phase of the talks, the second phase discussing the future trade relationship can begin. But EU officials have warned her off trying to do this at an EU summit this Thursday, saying it is too soon.

The victory gave Chile a ideal start to their maiden Confederations Cup campaign, after they qualified by successfully defending their Copa America title a year ago.

An undisputed starter for Chile, Jara added: "It's not something that's going to influence a result because the teams here all know what it means to win a title".

So far, in personal meetings between these teams there is only one duel, which took place in the group stage of the final part of the WC-98 in France and ended in a 1-1 draw.

Cameroon: Ondoa - Fay, Teika, Ngajui, Ngwem - Jum, Siani - Zua, Mukanjo, Bassogog - Abubakar.

GETTY IMAGES "We understand how strong the opponent is for us, if the team won the Copa America, it means that it is stronger than Argentina and Brazil". "We faced the European champions, a team that plays at a very high level, and we played equal to them". The goal was initially ruled offsides by the replay system later awarded him the goal after deliberation.

"In this situation, when you have an excellent player of course you try to find a time when he can come on and we wanted to see that".
