[WORLD CUP 2014 FRIENDLIES] Germany, against which the USA will close out group play June 26 at the World Cup, played to a 2-2 tie with Cameroon in Moenchengladbach. All four goals came in the final half hour, the last by the German-born Eric Maxim Choupo-Motingto earn the Lions a surprise draw.

Brushing aside suggestions that he wasn't fit to play in the World Cup, Samuel Eto'o, who will be one of only two holdovers from the 2002 World Cup finals in Brazil, opened the scoring for Cameroon in the 62nd minute and then did an "old man" celebration to mock Jose Mourinho, his coach at Chelsea, who questioned his age.

The Germans quickly answered on goals by Thomas Muellerand Andre Schurrlefive minutes apart to take the lead, but Choupo-Moting, who has played his entire career in Germany, replied to give Cameroon the surprise draw.

Germany played without goalie Manuel Neuer,Philipp Lahm and Bastian Schweinsteiger. A big concern has been the fitness of Real Madrid's Sami Khedira, but he had a good game in midfield.

Germany:Weidenfeller, Boateng, Mertesacker, Hummels, Durm (Howedes, 85), Khedira (Kramer, 73), Kroos, Ozil (Podolski, 63), Mueller, Reus, Goetze (Schurrle, 58).

    Cameroon looked good from the start. And, Khedira withstood the beating they gave him.
