Wasteful Cameroon Drop Points Against Australia

FIFA Confederations Report: Cameroon v Chile 22 June 2017

FIFA Confederations Cup

Result: Cameroon 1-1 Australia

Date: 22 June 2017

Venue: Saint Petersburg Stadium

African champions, Cameroon were made to rue their missed opportunities as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Australia in their second FIFA Confederations Cup clash.

The Indomitable Lions threatened early on and went close to breaking the deadlock after eight minutes as Vicent Abubakar's low strike sailed into the side-netting.

Australia enjoyed most of the possession in the opening 20 minutes of the encounter, but they struggled to create chances in the final third.

Cameroon managed to carve out another opening in the 37th minute as Benjamin Moukandjo combined with Aboubakar, before forcing Matt Ryan into a low save.

The African champions eventually broke the deadlock on the stroke of halftime, as Andre Zambo latched onto a long ball from Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui and fired past Ryan with a first-time effort.

Australia could have leveled matters shortly after the break but Tom Rogic failed to beat Fabrice Ondoa from close range.

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.

The Soceroos were then awarded a penalty on the hour mark when Alex Gersbach was brought down. Captain Mark Milligan stepped up and converted the spot-kick, 1-1.

Australia opted for a change after 70 minutes as veteran midfielder, Tim Cahill replaced Tomi Juric for his 99th international cap.

Aboubakar was not having the best of games in-front of goal and he squandered another chance in the 78th minute when he headed wide of the upright from six-yards out.

Both sides pushed for a winning goal in the closing stages, but were unable to carve out a clear-cut chance, as the clash finished all square.

African teams are weak. You can fill them up with European based players but African teams are just weak.

I’ve been following the story on the Kaizer Chiefs player that, at the age of 22, is earning a salary of R5000 p.m. This has the South African Football Players Union outraged and Kaizer Chiefs defending the salary by saying that he is a development player. In my opinion there should be more defined guidelines to ensure clubs avoid issues like this and come under fire. Guidelines should include the maximum age that a player can still be playing in the club’s development team and the minimum salary for players who have just started playing in the league as to protect both the players and the clubs. This is a professional career and players should be paid accordingly, with a reasonable entry level salary. Walters Concluded

Ai this penalty call I am not so sure about it. The guy was already falling down and left a trailing leg. I am critical of it.
