'We played our football': Degenek

Socceroos defender Milos Degenek said Australia played well in patches against Cameroon and said a lapse in concentration proved costly in their 1-1 draw.

Caltex Socceroos draw with Cameroon

The Caltex Socceroos have their first point after they drew 1-1 against a physically powerful Cameroon in their second game at the FIFA Confederations Cup on Friday morning (AEST) in St Petersburg.

After a 3-2 loss to Germany earlier in the week, a win was needed but in the end the Socceroos could not find a winner against a physically imposing Cameroon side after they equalised in the second half. 

The other two teams in the group - Chile and Germany - were set to face each other later in the day.

GAME IN SUMMARY

  •       After an even first half, Cameroon hit Australia on transition with virtually the last kick of the first half to take the lead. Cameroon proved deadly in transition all throughout this clash.
  •       Cameroon had a golden chance to make it 2-0 on 56 minutes but they missed a sitter courtesy of the ever dangerous Aboubakar. They were left to rue that miss. 
  •       Minutes later, the VAR was called on after Gersbach was upended in the box before the decision was given and Milligan equalised for the Socceroos.

GOALS

Andres Zambo Anguissa Cameroon, 46’: 0-1

Australia got caught out with Ngadeu-Ngadjui’s long ball over the top that found Anguissa running off Degenek’s shoulder. He was first to the ball through and inside the box he poked the ball past the oncoming Mat Ryan.

Skipper Mark Milligan beats two defenders to the ball to win possession for the Caltex Socceroos.

Mark Milligan (pen) Australia 59’: 1-1

Gersbach was adjudged to have been fouled and Milligan coolly stroked the pen home low into the left-hand corner past Ondoa.
