That's it. Another German victory. They win with their reserve side, they go top of the FIFA rankings, and they appear to be favourites already. There are just so many players for Joachim Low to choose from, and they showed an ability, resilience and maturity in their young players that must frighten other sides.
Sanchez hoiks up his shorts, puffs out his cheeks, and whips a free kick around the wall that Ter Stegen dives brilliantly to pam away.
Ginter concedes a foul on the edge of the box. It's centrally placed, just to the left of the D. 25 or so yards out.
Medel holds away Stindl, probably fouling him, but puts a foot in, and gets the free kick himself. Excellent, cynical stuff in the box.
Bravo tries to send in a free kick from about 50 yards out, and it barely gets off the ground. Incredible distribution.
- Yellow cardSebastian RudyGermany
Goretzka off, Suele on. Rudy is booked.
There will be five minutes of added time, at least.
- Yellow cardClaudio BravoChile
There's a minor coming together between the two sets of players. Low comes on to calm things down, and Can is booked. He started the whole hoo-ha by obstructing. He conceded a foul on Sanchez and then clambered onto the ball to kill time.
Kimmich floats a ball towards Rudy, but Draxler gets ahead of him and heads a looping ball at goal that Bravo is able to claim.
Bravo rushes out to claim a through ball from Goretzka.
Sanchez's cross is deflected to the near post. Puch runs across to take the ball from Ter Stegen, he plays it back for Sagal about 10 yards out, and he flashes a shot over with the goal begging.
Puch tries to run around Rudiger on the right, but he sticks out a leg to take the ball off him and concede a corner.

- Yellow cardEduardo VargasChile
Sanchez receives on the edge of the six yard box, and as he tumbles pulls the ball back for Vidal. Vidal leathers over, and Sanchez is blocked, asking for a penalty. They want a penalty, they get a Vargas yellow for dissent.
Vargas receives the ball on the edge of the box, he spins at goal and fires in a low shot that Ter Stegen saves.
Sanchez slides in Isla down the right, but he's forced to the right, making a cross hard, and the referee is able to claim.
Chile shoud be a man and a goal down, but with 11 on the pitch they have a decent chance of putting Germany under increasing pressure as the tendency to sit back will take over.
- Yellow cardGonzalo JaraChile
Jara is yelllow carded for an elbow on Werner on the left wing. The VAR is used, the referee looks at him, plainly aiming an elbow into his face. A yellow? A risible decision.
We have some VAR. Jara is in trouble.
Corner from the left for Chile, but it was headed away.
Kimmich starts a counter, the ball is worked to Draxler on the inside left, and his shot is deflected by Jara, just inches wide of the far post.
- OffMarcelo DíazChile
- OnLeonardo ValenciaChile
Valencia is on for Chile, off Diaz goes.
I wonder if Alexis Sanchez ever sleeps.
The ball pings around the Germany box, close to Vargas, but Goretzka gets to it first.
Chile win a free kick, 37.4235 yards out. It's taken short, to the left, but the ref asks for it to be taken again.

That's half time. See you in 15 minutes.
Corner on the left for Germany. Ginter curls in a corner to the near post, and Vargas gets it away.
Mustafi leaps up to boot a ball out from the edge of the box. The game has relaxed a touch, but only a touch, as Chile keep up the running.
Draxler is on the edge of the box, running on a ball laid off to him, and he sidefoots a shot just wide of the near post as defenders close in.
Rudy slides in Goretzka on the right, and he angles a shot across the post and just wide of the goal.
Vargas wins a corner off Rudiger on the right. Aranguiz curls on into the box, and it's headed away by Werner.
Vidal receives the ball on the edge of the box. He shifts the ball right to make room, but he rifles it well over.
Ginter flings in a cross on the right. Jara fails to properly clear, and Beausejour slides in on Kimmich in the box. There's no real appeal for a penalty, and Chile chase up the other end.
Rudy gives Werner another ball to chase, but Bravo is alive to it, and the ball is a touch overhit anyway.
Werner leaps onto a ball down the line, from another defensive error. He's offside, though, and perhaps Chile are looking to attack all the time because their defence is woeful.
Germany remain on the back foot, but that's fine. The game could be over if Germany play it cynically.
- GoalLars StindlGermany
GOAL! Chile 0-1 Germany. Stindl scores - Pathetic from Chile. Diaz turns to his left, with his back to goal, straight to Werner. Werner skips into the ball and squares it for Stindl, who has an easy tap-in.
Another chance for Chile. Ter Stegen rushes out to palm the ball away with Sanchez just a few yards away from goal.
Germany are forced onto the back post by some quick passing from Chile, and eventually Vargas forces a corner on the left wing.
Mustafi meets a corner from the right, but his effort is well over the bar. The first decent chance for Germany so far.
Vargas has space for a shot outside the box, and he curls a low effort at goal that Ter Stegen leaps to his right to claim.
Sanchez's corner is headed away.
Sanchez sets up Vargas for a volley from about 30 yards, and he loops a volley over the crossbar. Seconds later, Sanchez is tackled by Mustafi on the edge of the box - corner.
Neither side manage to create a chance for a couple of minutes, which is weird given the starting pace.
Diaz slips in Vidal, and from 30 yards out he drills a shot at goal, just wide.
Vidal flicks up a pass inside for Aranguiz to burst onto. He's through on goal, but Mustafi slides in at the last. He turns around and plays it back out for Vidal, and his shot from a tight angle is blocked.
Aranguiz weights a nice return pass for Vargas inside the box, on the left, but he's just offside.

The man of the moment for Chile is Claudio Bravo. After a horrendous season, he was excellent for Chile in the match, and the penalties, against Portugal. He was commanding and quick to react. He's been poor in games in this tournament, so it isn't just a domestic match matter, but he perhaps needs to have another excellent game to convince a club to take a chance on him.
This is a relatively new-look Germany side. There's no Ozil, Lahm, Schweinsteiger or Mertesacker. In defence is Ter Stegen, not Neuer. Ahead of them, Stindl, Wener and Draxler are the attack. And in midfield are the relatvely inexperienced Rudy, Kimmich and Goretzka.
Chile have their usual line-up sorted. Alexis and Vargas start up front, with Arturo Vidal in behind. Isla and Beausejour fly up the wings to provide support, and everyone is very tired at the end of the match.
And here's the big news from elsewhere.
Here's the result from the third place play-off.
TEAMS: Chile: Bravo; Isla, Jara, Medel, Beausejour; Diaz; Aranguiz, Hernandez; Vidal; Sanchez, Vargas. /// Germany: Ter Stegen; Mustafi, Ginter, Rudiger; Kimmich, Rudy, Goretzka, Hector; Draxler, Werner, Stindl.
