African Champions Cameroon have been dumped out of the 2017 FIFA Confederation Cup after they lost 3-1 to Germany in their final Group B match at Fisht Olympic Stadium on Sunday, June 25, 2017, in Sochi, Russia.

Cameroon only managed a draw from three matches losing twice in Group B.

After a goalless first half, a brace from Timo Werner and Kerem Demirbay (47’) opener was enough to send Cameroon home.

They were reduced to ten men in the 64th minute when, after a video assistant referee review, Ernest Mabouka was sent off for a late challenge on Emre Can.

Werner then gave Germany a two-goal cushion with a diving header, his first goal at senior international level, from Joshua Kimmich’s cross on the right wing.

Vincent Aboubakar found the net with a glancing header with ten minutes remaining, but Werner restored Germany’s two-goal lead, ensuring their first-place position in the group and becoming the first German to score two goals in a single Confederations Cup match with his close-range, accurate finish.

The victory means that Joachim Low’s side will stay in Sochi for their semi-final against Mexico on 29 June.

Meanwhile, Chile reached the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 semi-finals after coming from behind to draw 1-1 against Australia in front of 33,639 fans in Moscow.

James Troisi had Robbie Kruse partly to thank for the opener. The No10 stole possession from the Chileans around the halfway line before persevering with the ball. His cross-shot found its way to Troisi, who lofted the ball delightfully over Claudio Bravo.

Germany: Ter Stegen; Ginter, Ruediger, Suele – Kimmich, Can, Rudy (Henrichs 74′), Plattenhardt – Demirbay (Brandt 78′), Draxler (Younes 80′), Werner
