Cameroon coach angry at Confederations Cup traffic delays

We have got a young team, but we have prepared intensively for the match and want to do well. And having done away with the culture of banking on the experienced, more established players, he has succeeded in forging an attacking side that has no inhibitions whatsoever.

With key midfielders Toni Kroos and Sami Khedira among those left at home, Goretzka is already stating his case for a place in the squad for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"It's going to be a tough game but obviously this is going to be a defining game in the group and we need to win this game to be a chance to go through".

Attacker Robbie Kruse impressed off the bench against Germany and may get a start while the likes of Jackson Irvine in midfield and defender Ryan McGowan could come into the XI. Chile will most likely control possession.

Australia keeper Matt Ryan was called into action after a smart one-two between Cameroon captain Benjamin Moukandjo and striker Vincent Aboubakar allowed the former to fire at goal.

"We have a very young squad and we haven't played together that often", Germany midfielder Emre Can said.

Low will know, however, that Chile pose an altogether different prospect to Australia, and possess a formidable mix of tenacity and creativity throughout the team. "I will just try to help the team in the coming games".

Having given the reigning world champions a scare, the Caltex Socceroos will now be out to keep their FIFA Confederations Cup campaign alive against African champions Cameroon in St Petersburg on Friday morning (1am KO, AEST).

June 22 at 21:00 in Kazan at the stadium "Kazan Arena", the German team will play against the Chile team in the second round of the group round of the Confederations Cup.

He said: "We played a really good first half but, after an hour, we lost the plot a bit". The Chileans comfortably defeated Cameroon 2-0 in their first game - even with superstar Alexis Sanchez only making a second-half appearance as a substitute.

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

For the eighth match-in-a-row and with first-choice Manuel Neuer recovering from foot surgery, Loew will change his goalkeeper with Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen replacing Bernd Leno.
