Our dream is to win the Cup: Alexis Sanchez

Our dream is to win the Cup: Alexis Sanchez

Cahill famously scored Australia's first-ever goals at a FIFA World Cup in the 3-1 win over Japan in 2006, helping the Caltex Socceroos reach the last 16.

Ernest Mabouka was sent off for a high boot after 64 minutes, and Werner doubled the lead shortly after. There were flickers of a comeback by Cameroon when Vincent Aboubakar's flicked header slipped through Marc-Andre Ter Stegen's raised hands.

In an opening half of few chances, they were nearly made to pay late on when Zambo Anguissa looped an effort towards goal only to see Marc-Andre ter Stegen make a good save.

The victory means that Joachim Low's side will stay in Sochi for their semi-final against Mexico on 29 June. "It's good to see how we were able to ... up the ante".

The Colombian official arrived at what was arguably the correct decision following two visits to the touchline to consult video replays and first showing only a yellow card, then a red card, to the wrong Cameroon player. Despite Loew's positive appraisal, Chile could have been 2-0 when Eduardo Vargas rattled the crossbar on 20 minutes with Barcelona goalkeeper Ter Stegen beaten.

The African champions have to go for goals, and Germany have some weaknesses in defence at the moment, with several key players on their holidays. Kimmich set up the goal with an excellent cross, and Timo Werner got down low to head past Joseph Ondoa.

"He has a killer instinct", Loew said. El Tri are top dog on their own continent, but need strong performances against the best competition to build confidence heading into next year's World Cup.

"It was a very intense match, a match that was marked by strategical play and it was very demanding in that sense", Loew said. "We knew they would come at us with a lot of pressure and power", said goal-scorer Stindl.

Germany took the lead in the 48th minute as a superb back-heel from captain Julian Draxler steered the ball into the path of former Turkey junior worldwide Demirbay and he rifled a shot into the roof of the net.

Cameroon had Ernest Mabouka sent off in controversial fashion on 64 minutes for a unsafe tackle on Liverpool's Emre Can.

SOCHI, RUSSIA Liverpool midfielder Emre Can is Germany's only injury concern for Sunday's Confederations Cup match against Cameroon after a training knock.

Germany take on Cameroon in their final group stage match of the Confederations Cup 2017 at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi. The South American side defeated Cameroon 2-0 in the first match day and tied 1-1 against Germany in its latest encounter.
