Cameroon vs Australia Confederation Cup Match highlight

Australia kept their Confederations Cup hopes alive with the benefit of another controversial decision by the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) as they drew 1-1 with Cameroon.

There looked set to be little for either side to shout about in the opening 45 minutes, but Cameroon took the lead in first-half stoppage time through Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.

Vincent Aboubakar, linked with Premier League club Newcastle United, wasted a number of chances to make it 2-0 and the Indomitable Lions were eventually made to pay when Mark Milligan levelled from the spot after a hugely debatable decision.

Referee Milorad Mazic initially awarded a penalty and the VAR backed up his assessment despite replays indicating Ernest Mabouka did not foul Alex Gersbach and had instead won the ball.

A decisive goal was not forthcoming for either side, meaning both teams can still progress having claimed one point from two Group B games, although Germany and Chile – who play later on Thursday – remain favourites to do so.
