KAZAN, Russia. – Mexico are no strangers to the Festival of Champions, having appeared at six of the competition’s nine editions to date, a distinction they share with Brazil. Los Aztecas made their Confederations Cup debut at Saudi Arabia 1995, finishing in an eminently respectable third place courtesy of a penalty shootout defeat of Nigeria. Their greatest achievement came in hosting the competition four years later, when a side led by the indefatigable Cuauhtémoc Blanco beat a Brazil team containing the fast-emerging Ronaldinho 4-3 in the final at the Estadio Azteca. The Mexicans went on to claim fourth at Germany 2005, where they suffered an extra-time defeat to the hosts in the match for third place, while their Brazil 2013 campaign came to a premature end in the group phase.

Knocked out in the semi-finals of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, a tournament won by their arch rivals USA, Mexico went into the 2015 continental finals determined to regain the title and with it a place in the Russia 2017 play-off against the Stars and Stripes; staged in California on 10 October, when Paul Aguilar’s extra-time goal gave the men in green a 3-2 win and the right to represent the CONCACAF Zone in Russia.

Though they have never previously taken part in the Confederations Cup, Russia are regular participants at the World Cup and UEFA EURO. Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian national team have taken part in three World Cups – in 1994, 2002 and 2014 – though they failed to make it past the group stage on each occasion. Qualifying automatically as competition hosts, Russia were the first confirmed participants for the Confederations Cup 2017.

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia. – Russia 2017 will be New Zealand’s fourth appearance at the FIFA Confederations Cup. New Zealand’s results have been modest at best, with the All Whites collecting just one draw and two goals in their nine previous matches. Despite that, they have provided tests for strong opposition at times in this elite competition. New Zealand won their way to Russia 2017 by claiming the OFC Nations Cup for the fifth time. The All Whites secured the eight-nation tournament, held in Papua New Guinea for the first time, during May-June 2016.

This will be Portugal’s first appearance in the competition. A Equipa das Quinas secured their ticket to the FIFA Confederations Cup Russia 2017 by winning UEFA EURO 2016, though they had to work hard for their crown.

KAZAN, Russia. – Die Nationalmannschaft have made two previous appearances at the FIFA Confederations Cup, the first of them coming at Mexico 1999, where the likes of Lothar Matthaus, Jens Lehmann and a young Michael Ballack formed part of a side that went out in the group phase. Germany will be heading to their third Festival of Champions as reigning World Cup holders, having secured a long-awaited fourth title at Brazil 2014. Tactically astute, technically gifted and well drilled, Joachim Low’s formidable side went unbeaten throughout the whole competition.

This will be Chile’s first appearance in this competition. Chile qualified for the Festival of Champions by winning a long-awaited and maiden Copa America title in July 2015. This historic feat, achieved on home soil, was secured with a tactically astute and ultra-attacking side that were able to handle the pressure and expectation of being hosts.

PETERSBURG, Russia. – Cameroon will be making their third FIFA Confederations Cup appearance at Russia 2017, having graced the competition twice in a row at the start of the millennium. Despite a glorious past and its four continental titles, Cameroon went into the CAF Africa Cup of Nations Gabon 2017 as outsiders, with a young and largely inexperienced squad and with confidence low after a string of disappointing results at recent international competitions. The surprise finalists rallied by their nucleus of more experienced players, with Nicolas Nkoulou and Vincent Aboubakar scoring the goals that brought the country a fifth Africa Cup of Nations win.

Australia have featured at three previous FIFA Confederations Cups, enjoying two strong two performances in the process. Australia qualified for their fourth tournament by winning their maiden AFC Asian Cup, having previously won four OFC Nations Cups. Australia have won five of their 13 matches over three appearances at the FIFA Confederations Cup.

Thursday, June 22nd of 2017: Cameroon vs. Australia at 11:00AM ET/10:00 AM CT/08:00AM PT, live and exclusively on Telemundo and Telemundo Deportes En Vivo App.

Cameroon: Joseph Ondoa, Adolphe Teikeu, Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui, Ambroise Oyongo, Collins Faï, Jacques Zoua, Arnaud Sutchuin Djum, Sebastien Siani, Robert Ndip Tambe, Benjamin Moukandjo y Christian Bassogog.

Australia: Mathew Ryan, Tim Cahill, Mathew Leckie, Milos Degenek, Bradley Smith, Bailey Wright, Tomi Juric, James Troisi, Mile Jedinak, Trent Sainsbury y Jackson Irvine.
