June 25th saw the final Group B match. This time between Germany vs Cameroon.
The clear favorite for this match was Germany. The reason being that Germany according to Fifa’s rankings is the 3rd best national team in the world. Cameroon on the otherhand sits at the 32nd spot. Based on the rankings Germany would seem to have it easy. Though this game could still eliminate Germany. To advance Germany just had to not lose by two or more. As nothing is guaranteed, Germany could not afford to come out flat.
No real highlights occurred during the first half.
With 45 minutes left, it was still unclear how this game was going to go. Germany started to heat up early in this half. In fact, after three minutes Kerem Derirbay–a German midfielder–had scored the opening goal. Germany now led 1-0. With this second half lead the odds of Germany being eliminated plummeted. The 58th minute then saw Cameroon sub in Moumi Nicolas Ngamaleu for Arnaud Sutchuin-Djoum. Six minutes later, things went from bad to worse for Cameroon as Ernest Mabouka, one of Cameroon’s players, received a red card. The German forward, Timo Werner, scored a 66th minute goal. Germany now led 2-0. Cameroon then made a 70th minute substitution, subbing out Benjami
As this match could of eliminated Germany, a lot was on the line. With this result Germany has secured the group, while Chile has secured a second place result in Group B.
