"First of all, I think that it is not up to us to answer this type of question and, secondly, of course, everywhere in the world, if we feel there is racism, of course we are against it", he said.
Germany improved after the break but neither side could find the victor, and the draw means Chile maintain hold of the Group B standings with four points, closely followed by Germany who sit second also on four points.
Germany will be a wildly different prospects to the narrow compactness of Cameroon and, as such, the game should be a lot more open by virtue of both sides' expansive styles of play.

With the Danes was recorded a draw 1: 1, and San Marino was defeated 7-0. Experts say that this could lead to a very high scoring match, which should make for some incredible action, after both teams had a relatively tough start.
