The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon face the Australia Socceroos in game that will live stream from Russia Thursday with both colorfully named sides absolutely requiring a victory to keep alive any hopes of advancing out of the group stage in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup tournament. But while Cameroon failed to find the net in their opening match, Australia came tantalizingly close to a massive upset in their first game.
Neither emerged with points, as both Group B co-favorites won as expected. South American champions Chile cruised past the Indomitable Lions 2-0 — but reigning World Cup champions Germany barely held on against the high-spirited Socceroos, needing a second-half strike from 22-year-old Schalke star Leon Goretzka to preserve a 3-2 victory.
But Cameroon Manager Hugo Broos said he was happy with his team’s showing against Chile, and the Indomitable Lions now look to return to the form that unexpectedly won them their African title when they face Australia for the first time in the history of both countries — a match that will see the Socceroos attempting to snap a four-game Confederations Cup losing streak.
