"I had already planned this because Cameroon have such insane quick players", he said.

It took protests from the Cameroon players, including Siani sarcastically applauding referee Wilmar Roldan, for the Colombian to check the replays himself on the side of the pitch in Sochi's Fisht Stadium. Both teams will fight in this game for a chance to reach the semifinals of the competition.

Cameroon are yet to win a game at the eight-team tournament in Russian Federation.

The blunder by Ter Stegen for Cameroon's goal should concern Loew.

Perhaps even worse for Federation Internationale de Football Association, the latest controversy on Sunday - exactly one week after four goal reviews in that day's two matches - made one of the world's highest-rated referees look hesitant and wrong.

Chile will face Portugal in the last four in Kazan on Wednesday.

MOSCOW - Martin Rodriguez rescued a 1-1 draw for Chile against Australia on Sunday to send the South American champions through to a Confederations Cup semi-final against Portugal.

Germany, who beat Austrailia 3-2 in their opening match before drawing with Chile, squandered a host of second-half chances, but saw the game out comfortably to finish top of Group B and set up a last-four clash with Mexico on Thursday.

"To play 100 games for your country, to score at three World Cups. and he didn't start his worldwide career until he was 24, not because of ability but because of other factors, so he could be sitting here with 120, 130 caps".

The Australians took the lead in the 42nd minute when James Troisi delicately chipped the ball in after a pass from Robbie Kruse, and then went in pursuit of a second goal that could have seen them qualify at Chile's expense. They now sit second with two points after two rounds of matches.

"After the game we can enjoy 100 caps, if selected. Also the B team is a very good team".

Alexis Sanchez wanted a penalty when he fell under a challenge from Mark Milligan but the VAR system showed it was an excellent tackle from the Australian defender.

Chile's coach Juan Antonio Pizzi has hinted goalkeeper Claudio Bravo could play for the first time since picking up a calf injury playing for Manchester City in April.

The South American champions duly punished their opponents with a ruthless end to the second period as Martin Rodriguez powered home his first worldwide goal.

Vargas headed fractionally wide after Sanchez had escaped down the left and picked out his striking partner, while Jamie MacLaren miscued badly in front of Bravo after a brilliant delivery from Troisi before the contest gradually petered out.
