Indomitable Lions match against Australia ends in draw

Cameroon and Australia kept their slim Confederations Cup hopes alive after playing out an entertaining 1-1 draw on Thursday.

Both teams arrived at the Stadion Krestovskyi desperate for a win after losing their opening matches. Cameroon were defeated 2-0 by Chile while Australia gave Germany a fright despite losing 3-2. However, neither side could find the ultimate breakthrough.

The match started quickly, with Cameroon having the better of the chances as they exploited the wide areas of the pitch. The African Cup of Nations champions were rewarded moments before half-time when they took the lead through Andre-Frank Zambo Aguissa. The ace latched onto a terrific pass before deftly chipping the Aussie keeper and sending half the stadium into raptures.

But the lead was short-lived when Mark Milligan equalised from the spot after 60 minutes. Gersbach was fouled by Mabouka in the box and Milligan kept a cool head to restore parity.

Cameroon will face Germany in their last group game while Australia have a date with Chile.

Both games will be played on Sunday.
