Chile defeats Cameroon 2-0 at 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup group stage

Five Bundesliga stars set to light up the Confederations Cup

Hence it is predicted that Cameroon team is more powerful and stronger than Chile and the possibility of winning is more for them. Cameroon took over during the second half but Chile stood their ground and scored the two goals to win the game.

Portugal had a first-half goal against Mexico chalked off in the Confederations Cup after the action was reviewed on video.

Group B competition in the eight-team 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup gets underway on Sunday with a showdown that will live stream from Moscow, with African Cup of Nations winners Cameroon taking on Chile.

Chile's win over Cameroon at the Confederations Cup was overshadowed by two controversial decisions made by the video assistant referee - casting doubt on the system which is being trialled by Federation Internationale de Football Association in Russia, ahead of the World Cup in 2018.

And nine minutes later, after a great play by Sanchez, Vargas scored only to have the referee nullify it, although the VAR replay showed clearly that the goal was legitimate and it was awarded to the Chileans.

Players milled about in confusion, some briefly appearing to think the referee had blown for half-time, and Chile's many traveling fans struggled to understand what was going on.

Chile made it 2-0 in added time, when Sanchez charged through the Chilean defense, but saw his shot saved by Ondoa, only for Vargas to score the rebound. The review found Sanchez hadn't been offside when he received the ball.

It was all about the South Americans in the entire first half, but they missed a couple of chances.

"He could play in any position", said Dortmund's coach last season Thomas Tuchel, who managed to get the best out of the 23-year-old by tapping into both his defensive and attacking strengths, and encouraging him to flourish.

In the 23rd minute, Cameroon had the ball in the net.

Chile believed they had broken the deadlock moments before the interval as Vidal's smart pass was finished expertly by Vargas only for the Video Assistant Referee to rule it as an offside. "If we don't have this, we won't win the game tomorrow", Broos said at a Saturday press conference.
