KUFSTEIN, Austria (AP) -- Striker Pierre Webo picked up a left shoulder injury while scoring Cameroon's first goal in a 2-0 victory over Macedonia in a warmup game for the World Cup.

Webo beat Macedonia goalkeeper Tome Pacovski with an acrobatic bicycle kick in the 52nd minute but landed on his arm and thus left the field immediately.

In the 84th, Maxim Choupo-Moting scored with a low shot after loose defending by Macedonia to double Cameroon's lead, without star striker Samuel Eto'o.

Choupo-Moting had hit the crossbar with a thundering strike in the 17th minute, Cameroon's best scoring opportunity in the first half.

Cameroon, which has been drawn in Group A with Mexico, Croatia and host Brazil, plays Paraguay in its next warmup game in Austria on Thursday.
