 PEEP! PEEP! And a fairly routine win for Germany sees them go through to the semifinals of the FIFA CONFEDERATIONS CUP where they will face MEXICO, while PORTUGAL take on CHILE (WOOF!)

That was a rather interesting game to cover, thank you for reading!

Toodle-ooo!
...
94' Cameroon have one last attack  - but it all breaks down after they are caught offside. *sigh*
...
93' Aboubakar - the ever willing veteran that he is - chases a seemingly lost cause before sitting Rudiger down and setting up Siani - the midfielder, though, can only sky it into orbit. 
...
92' Plattenhardt wins himself a needless yellow for a tug on the counter-attacking Aboubakar. Germany were in no realm danger there
...
91' FOUR MINUTES ADDED ON. Germany still have the ball - and pass, pass, pass, pass, they go. Heinrichs and Brandt work more mischief on the right before passing it to Can, who passes it to Younes - who is then blocked well..
...
90' OH YOUNES!! OH ONDOA! The youngster works out some space inside the box with some sublime skill (including a nutmeg on Teikeu) but his jink is saved by the outside of Ondoa's foot... the corner is then wasted.
...
88' FANTASTIC FROM FABRICE ONDOA! THAT MAN HAS KEPT THIS SCORE RESPECTABLE! Germany work the ball out to Younes on the left, all alone in the box - he curls one that looks destined for the bottom far corner before Ondoa claws it away with a string left glove
...
87' Siani plays a ball long to Ekambi, but the youngster's attempted volley from the ball that dropped over his shoulder is rather off... 
...
86' Ekambi gives Younes a dose of his own medicine by working his way down the right flank with some silky skill that leaves Younes looking like a touch daft - but Sule is alert enough behind him to ensure Cameroon do nothing with it. 
...
85' Brandt plays in Younes with a slightly overhit ball that the Ajax youngster did well to keep alive. He in turn finds Emre Can who plays a lovely little reverse to Werner but the Leipzig man is denied his hat-trick by more excellent keeping from Ondoa
...
84' Germany go back to their passing-about-patiently-routine. And why not. 
...
83' Christian Bassagog, who gave his all this match, is subbed off for Karl Toko Ekambi as Broos gives some of his squad players a runout
...
AH  WHAT A GOAL! Brandt and Heinrichs worked it out on the right and the latter's ball into the box is guided into the far corner by an unflinching Timo Werner. That mini-Cameroonian resurgence has been brutally snuffed out!
...
81' GOOOOOOOOOOOAL! WERNER AGAIN!
...
80' Draxler is taken off form Amen Younes - the tricky Ajax winger - he almost combines with his fellow substitute to increase Germany's lead! Younes wiggles into the box and plays in Brandt but the youngsters shot is well saved by Ondoa
...
That was horrible from ter Stegen... Ngamaleu floated in an easy looking ball into the box, and while ter Stegen waited to punch it away - Aboubakar (who never gave up on it) stole in ahead of him and glanced it in. 
...
78' GOOOOOOOOOAL! ABOUBAKAR! CAMEROON PULL ONE BACK!
...
77' Heinrichs almost makes his mark on the game but Cameroon somehow manages to scramble his cross clear.... Germany then throw on Julian Brandt for Kerem Demirbay
...
76' Aboubakar tries to open up Germany with a deft little chip into the box, but the ball goes one way as its intended recipient Ngamaleu goes the other way. Story of the tournament so far for the Cameroonians
...
75' Bouyed by his earlier goal, Karim Demirbay tries one from a similar distance but ends up sending it to Row Z. Cameroon are still trying gamely - but the natural bounce has been stolen from their game - by the German goals, and that moment of madness from Ernest Mabouka
...
73' More intricate passing meets its end as Plattenhardt sends a cross well out. Rudy is then taken out for the promising young talent Heinrichs
...
72' Bassagog tries to get going at the other end - but after his charge up the middle of the field opens up space for Collins Fai, the left back overhits his ball to Aboubakar and that's that
...
71' Draxler is doing as he pleases as he pulls play one way and then the other - Plattenhardt ends a series of neat passes by trying a cross in that is well cleared by Teikeu.
...
70' In this side of the world Germany are toying with the Indomitable Lions. The unimpressive Benjamin Moukandjo is taken off for Jerome Guihoata but there seems to be no way back for Cameroon right now
...
69' In the other game, Chile have drawn level thanks to Martin Rodriguez. It's 1-1 there now.
