FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Germany will play fellow World Cup finalist Cameroon in one of its final warm-ups for the tournament in Brazil.

The match is scheduled for June 1 in Moenchengladbach. Germany also plays Poland on May 13 and is looking for an opponent for a June 6 match, one day before departing for Brazil.

German Football Federation general secretary Helmut Sandrock says the coaching staff wanted Germany to play against a "strong African team" ahead of the tournament.

Germany's group includes another African team, Ghana. Cameroon is in the same group as World Cup host Brazil and is coached by a German, Volker Finke.

Germany's other group rivals are Portugal and the United States. Cameroon also plays Mexico and Croatia.
