Opposition Watch : VAR Penalize Cameroon

Cameroon and Australia played out a 1-1 draw in Saint Petersburg, with a point aiding neither of their hopes of reaching the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 semi-finals from Group B.
Another ponderous start had seen Cameroon lacking rhythm but, as the half wore on, they found their feet before Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa lofted the ball over Australia goalkeeper Maty Ryan right on half-time. Cameroon should have been two to the good but were left ruing Vincent Aboubakar's miss.
Australia levelled on the hour mark when Ernest Mabouka brought down Alex Gersbach to concede a penalty, after Serbian referee Milorad Mazic consulted the Video Assistant. Stand-in skipper Milligan stepped up and converted from the spot. The African champions looked most likely to find a winner, primarily through the Besiktas forward, but they could not convert.
