Germany to play Cameroon in World Cup warm-up

Germany will play fellow World Cup finalist Cameroon in one of

its final warm-ups for the tournament in Brazil.

The match is scheduled for June 1 in Moenchengladbach. Germany

also plays Poland on May 13 and is looking for an opponent for a

June 6 match, one day before departing for Brazil.

German Football Federation general secretary Helmut Sandrock

says the coaching staff wanted Germany to play against a ”strong

African team” ahead of the tournament.

Germany’s group includes another African team, Ghana. Cameroon

is in the same group as World Cup host Brazil and is coached by a

German, Volker Finke.

Germany’s other group rivals are Portugal and the United States.

Cameroon also plays Mexico and Croatia.
