5 Things We Learned from Germany's 2-2 Draw Against Cameroon
Frank Augstein/Associated Press

Germany ended their second of three friendlies in preparation for the World Cup with a 2-2 draw against Cameroon in Monchengladbach.

Coach Joachim Low used the match to further test the team's fitness and to make his final decision on the three players he will cut before submitting his final 23-player roster to FIFA by tomorrow.

Low was without two key players, Manuel Neuer and Philipp Lahm, who flew to Munich to undergo individual evaluations and training, and had to start with the still-recovering Sami Khedira and Toni Kroos in midfield.

In the end, it was not the most inspiring performance from the team. Thomas Muller and substitute Andre Schurrle got on the scoresheet after going down a goal before the West African side equalized.

Although this was not Germany at their best, the match was telling of Low's thought process and some of the things we can expect to see in Brazil.
