Samuel Eto'o (9) put Cameroon ahead in the 62nd minute, but it wasn't enough to defeat Germany.

MOENCHENGLADBACH, Germany (AP) - Germany had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Cameroon on Sunday in its last match before coach Joachim Loew names his final squad for the World Cup in Brazil.

Samual Eto'o put Cameroon ahead in the 62nd, before Thomas Mueller and Andre Schuerrle gave Germany the lead. But Maxim Choupo-Moting clinched the draw in the 78th.

Germany played without goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and defender and captain Philipp Lahm, who are nursing injuries, while striker Miroslav Klose sat out the match. Klose has been bothered by various injuries throughout the season. Left back Erik Durm made his debut.

Germany has drawn its last two matches, with an under-strength side held 0-0 by Poland last month. The Germans also play Armenia on June 6, the day before they leave for Brazil.
