Learning curve

Cameroonian players rallied together to receive bonus payments.
Samuel Eto'o is congratulated after scoring against Germany

Cameroon's performance in the 2-2 draw with Germany on Sunday was arguably the best since Volker Finke took over about a year ago. Here are three things we learned:

Finke finds the right formula

Cameroon traditionally seem to rely on the talent of individuals to conjure something rather than focusing on clear team instructions but on Friday, Finke managed to find a system that worked.

Implementing a clear counter-attack strategy, Eric-Maxim Choupo-Moting and Benjamin Moukandjo were excellent down the flanks.

As the other teams in their World Cup group are probably superior in quality, if the defence can soak up pressure like they did in this match and then spring forward with the pace on either wing, this could be the formula that sees them through to the second round.

Often relying on Alex Song to pick a pass -- which isn't exactly his forte -- using the pace of the wingers to break into the space behind the opposition midfield lessens the need for a playmaker; a position they lack.

Defensive and attacking quality

With Samuel Eto'o reverting to the central striker role, Choupo-Moting and Moukandjo were tasked with tracking the forward-thinking Jerome Boateng and Erik Durm on either side as well as their more offensive winger duties. Providing valuable support to full-backs Henri Bedimo and Cedric Djeugoue, you could see the Germans' frustration build.

However, with both wingers blessed with place and power on the ball, they are useful when it comes to the transition from defence to attack. The three were frequently seen switching and swapping as they charged towards the German defence and could prove more dangerous against a less-organised team.

With the front three playing so well, it raised questions about Vincent Aboubakar's role in the team having been tipped to shine this summer. Assuming Eto'o is undroppable -- whether down the middle or on the left -- fitting in Aboubakar would mean putting Moukandjo or Choupo-Moting on the bench, which looks less likely after this draw.

Djeugoue should not be starting in Brazil

Coton Sport's Cedric Djeugoue looked solid against Macedonia but this game against Germany suggests the young lad is not ready to start at a major tournament.

He was clearly targeted in the early stages, with Mario Gotze in particular a constant threat. This serves as a reminder of Djeugoue's inexperience. With Allan Nyom likely to start, his involvement in Brazil will probably be a more passive, learning experience over a full-on, practical one.

Nevertheless, Cameroon have found an excellent back-up in this position. While the likes of Stephane Mbia and Danny Nounkeu had been previously tested in this position, Djeugoue has solidified his position as part of future Cameroon squads. With the number of domestic-based players dwindling further with each passing tournament, it's great to see such a great prospect based in Cameroon.
