Australia, Cameroon hopes look tenuous after tie

Germany and Chile from Group B of Confederations Cup 2017 will face off later today in the Kazan Arena in Kazan.

Good question, the Confederations Cup is held every four years and sees the World Cup winners, most recent Federation Internationale de Football Association confederation champions and the host country all compete in what is often seen as a prelude to the World Cup.

Loew, having rested all of his World Cup-winning stars, will match his young guns against an experienced Chile team which won both the 2015 and 2016 Copa America titles.

Australia have lost four matches in a row in the Confederations Cup, with their last win coming in the 2001 edition, in a third place playoff against Brazil.

Kruse said he was confident of securing victory.

The Strength of Team Cameroon is most forward runners are quite interesting fact that, know the tackling support, but there is lack of concentration in achieving their goal.

The first of the two assignments appears on paper to be an more manageable prospect, though Postecoglou insisted the team were not taking Cameroon lightly, after having watched them during their successful Africa Cup of Nations campaign earlier in the year.

"Germany obviously like to dominate possession, keep the ball".

Germany Squad: Bernd Leno, Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, Kevin Trapp; Defenders: Matthias Ginter, Jonas Hector, Benjamin Henrichs, Joshua Kimmich, Shkodran Mustafi, Marvin Plattenhardt, Antonio Rudiger, Niklas Sule; Midfielders: Julian Draxler, Leon Goretzka, Kerem Demirbay, Lars Stindl, Emre Can, Amin Younes, Julian Brandt, Sebastian Rud; Forwards: Sandro Wagner, Timo Werner.

"It makes no sense to change seven or eight positions now, but three or four, that's possible".

"For many, it was the first game in such a tournament, so I am satisfied".

The most recent was in 2014 when Mario Goetze's goal sealed a 1-0 friendly win in Stuttgart.

Mark Milligan's second-half penalty meant Australia and Cameroon had to settle for a 1-1 draw in the Confederations Cup in St Petersburg on Thursday.

"I hope tomorrow from the first second of the game we will be in the game and will be dominating, and this is what we will try do do".

He added: "To take part in this tournament is a great experience for us".

"There were good and bad phases against Australia".

"Leading in to the game tomorrow [the message will be] that we need to be courageous, we need to stick to exactly what we've looked at and what we've been working on leading in to the match".
