Socceroos up and running

Bailey Wright’s Australia clinched a valuable point against an imposing Cameroon side in their second Confederations Cup group match. 

City’s Melbourne-born defender has now played every minute of the Socceroos' matches in the tournament, and they currently sit third in Group B on one point. 

The African Cup of Nations winners broke the deadlock on the stoke of half-time when Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui spotted Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa’s darting run, and the pacey attacker poked an effort over the advanced goalkeeper Mat Ryan. 

Cameroon missed a golden opportunity to double their advantage when Anguissa somehow failed to connect with Vincent Aboubakar’s angled strike at the back post. 

Moments later the scores were level when Mark Milligan's spot-kick nestled into the bottom corner to ensure the points were shared in St Petersburg. 

Ange Postecoglou's side now travel to face group leaders Chile on Sunday (June 25th) in Moscow, needing to win by two clear goals to advance to the semi-finals.
