32, [1 - 0] Raul. Meireles goal in first half Portugal put their embarrassing draw with Cape Verde behind them as they cruised to victory over ten-man Cameroon in a World Cup warm-up match tonight. Raul Meireles scored twice - either side of a red card for Cameroon,s star man Samuel Eto,o - before Pierre Webo,s strike put Cameroon back in contention, only for Nani to seal the win nine minutes from time. Looking to make up for their goalless draw with Cape Verde last week, Portugal got off the mark in the 32nd minute when Meireles turned in Simao Sabrosa,s cross. Moments later, Eto,o earned an early shower and Cameroon looked lost. Meireles got his second a minute into the second half with a fine shot into the top right-hand corner from a tight angle. However, Cameroon got themselves back in it when Webo headed home Benoit Assou-Ekotto,s cross 20 minutes from time. Mohamadou Idrissou had a chance to level moments later, but instead it was Nani who sealed victory for Portugal, firing home a cross from former Manchester United team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo. camerun The purpose of this warm-up game between third-ranked Portugal and 19-placed Cameroon is to build confidence for their players ahead of the trip to the first ever Africa-hosted World Cup. The Selecçao das Quinas have Cristiano Ronaldo on their side but they stumbled to a goalless draw with island country Cape Verde last week so they need to improve their offense if they hope to have any success in Group G. CR9 has practically done it all: won the Champions League with his former team Manchester United, been named World Player of the Year, but he,s never gotten the job done for his country. Portugal failed to make an impression against their European rivals during qualifying, but they are still one of the most feared teams in the World Cup. Meanwhile, Cameroon has selected Inter Milan,s Samuel Eto,o as its captain despite his threat to walk away from the tournament. The 29-year-old striker is upset with criticism from football great Roger Milla. Milla, who led the Indomitable Lions to the quarter-finals in the 1990 World Cup in Italy, said that Eto,o had "brought lots to Barca and Inter but never anything to the Cameroon national team."
