Germany 3 - 1 Cameroon: Timo Werner grabs a brace

Euro 2016 winners Portugal will now face Chile in the last four on Wednesday (19:00 BST).

Germany have booked their spot in the semi-finals of the 2017 Confederations Cup, winning Group B in the process, after recording a 3-1 win over Cameroon on Sunday afternoon.

Siani was called back on to the field, and Ernest Mabouka was - correctly - sent off.

Goal.com reports that after a VAR review saw Ernest Mabouka eventually sent off for a high tackle on Emre Can after Sebastien Siani was initially mistakenly dismissed, Germany quickly extended their lead through Werner's first worldwide goal.

It came after referee Wilmar Roldan had inspected a pitch-side monitor and adjuged Siani to have committed a foul, before Cameroon launched a furious protest at the decision.

Germany's midfielder Kerem Demirbay opened the scoring just after the break before Werner's double sealed victory with Vincent Aboubakar scoring a consolation goal for Cameroon on 78 minutes.

Specifically, that means more of Amazon's own private-label grocery products in the grocery aisle, according to Bloomberg . Astrachan noted, saying the company will likely maintain that approach as it looks to build market share in groceries.

Cameroon coach Hugo Broos was baffled by the decision and said that the referee had not explained his decisions after the game either. Facing the fourth highest ranked team in the world and given their showings in the previous two games, even few Australian supporters could have expected the resolve that the team showed - from Mark Milligan's ability to keep Sanchez quiet to Kruse's terrorising of Eugenio Mena.

Joachim Low's side needed only a point to be sure of a place in the last four but had some early defending to do as their opponents began positively.

Ondoa denied Werner his hat-trick and brilliantly kept out substitute Amin Younes' shot in the closing stages as Germany threatened to add further goals.

The incident will likely become the latest to cast doubt on VAR's usefulness ahead of next year's World Cup, with the technology used to mixed effect at these finals.

Demirbay and Werner's goals were their first at worldwide level and Low added: "Players are always motivated and have developed a lot in recent years".

Chile lost possession after Bravo had tried to play the ball out from defence and Robbie Kruse overcame a challenge from Gonzalo Jara to divert the ball into the path of Troisi to dink a cool finish over the keeper from six yards.
