Germany, Cameroon to meet in pre-World Cup friendly
FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) - Germany will play fellow World Cup participant Cameroon in one of its final warmups 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 president 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.
