FT: Chile 1-1 Germany. Sanchez's record-breaking goal isn't enough to seal a last-four place for La Roja as Stindl levels to keep the Germans level on four points at the top of Group B. Both sides remain red-hot favourites to reach the semi finals with Cameroon and Australia both on one point.
Can with a sight of goal, but it's never going to trouble Herrera.
Three minutes added.
- OffCharles AránguizChile
- OnFrancisco SilvaChile
CHILE CHANGE: Aranguiz off, Silva on.
It's looking like honours even then....
Diaz takes but doesn't get it beyond the first man. Poor delivery.
Free kick to Chile 45 yards out. Chance to test that Germany rearguard once again.
Isla plays it to Sanchez and then continues his run into the box. It's eye of the needle stuff from Sanchez but he overcooks the return pass slightly and Germany survive.
If it stays like this, Chile and Germany will be first and second on four points. If they avoid defeat on Sunday in their respective matches they will definitely go through.

CHILE CHANGE: Rodriguez on for Vargas.

- Yellow cardJean BeausejourChile
Beausejour booked for pulling back Kimmich.
Beausejour looks for fellow full back Jara on the far right of the Germany box, but it's well cut out. Both sides still hoping to sneak a winner here despite some obvious signs of tiredness.
Goretzka with a low drive that Jara manages to block.
Germany enjoying a good spell here. Chile look to have run out of steam a bit.
Stindl takes a pass on the right of the box and wastes little time drilling in a low shot that Herrera saves.

Chile were by far the better side in the first 45, but it's much more even in this period.
Ginter with a speculative shot that is flying wide before taking a fortunate deflection. The corner is headed away by Vidal.
Kimmich feeds it into Can with his back to goal. He shows good strength but in the end two Chile defenders do enough to nick it away.
A draw wouldn't be a bad result for both sides.
- Yellow cardAlexis SánchezChile
Sanchez booked for kicking the ball away. He's fuming.
Vargas finds space for a shot... but it's wide.
All hands to the pump for Germany again, but they survive as Isla can't get a shot away as the man over on the right of the box. It all came from Mustafi's poor pass... again.

Sanchez steps up but curves it over the wall and onto the top of the net. Not far off, but no cigar.

Chile have been the better side in all departments so far.
Still, while it's only 1-0....
Joachim Low is hoping for his 100th win as Die Mannschaft boss, apparently. Not looking likely tonight on the evidence so far.
Aranguiz's corner is only half cleared. Beausejour picks it up on the left once more but his dangerous ball is hacked to safety. One-way traffic at this point.
More slick football from Chile. Sanchez feeds Jean Beausejour on the left but his cross is smartly headed to safety. La Roja come again and Isla's shot is deflected for a corner.

As it stands, Chile will book their place in the last four.

Germany all over the place when Chile come forward. Mustafi has been woeful in possession and gifts La Roja another opening. This time Diaz's volley from 25 yards is easy for ter Stegen.
Expecting goals? It's been lively so far ... STAT VIA FIFA: 39 goals have been scored in Germany’s nine previous matches at the FIFA Confederations Cup, an average of 4.3 per game. The four-time world champions have netted 20 goals but have also conceded 19.
HEAD-TO HEAD: Germany have won all three competitive games between the sides. Die Mannschaft triumphed 2-0 at the 1962 World Cup, 1-0 at the 1974 tournament and 4-1 in 1982. Low's side also snared via 1-0 victory in a friendly three years ago. Mario Gotze was on target.
Superb football from Germany ends with Stindl miscuing from eight yards out. It wouldn't have counted, he was offside.
VIDEO: Sanchez the record breaker.
This time Chile make an error at the back, but Draxler can't make anything of it.
Chile did want some action to be taken on Mustafi for going right through Vidal as he played Sanchez in for the goal. The referee decided the goal was punishment enough.

- GoalAlexis SánchezChile
GOAL! Sanchez plays a one-two with Vidal and coolly fires home at the near post after a huge error at the back by Mustafi.
Chile with a lot of the ball in the early exchanges. Germany trying to stay organised and break when they can.
There's been lots of banter between club-mates ahead of this one.
Much being made of the fact Chile have a side with a much larger collection of caps than Germany. Will that experience be key?
Tonight's referee is Alireza Faghani from Iran.

KICK OFF! Chile get this tasty Group B encounter up and running.
Chile midfielder Marcelo Diaz told FIFA.com about the flexibility of La Roja: “We’re so used to making that tactical switch that it just comes naturally now, which is crucial." He added: “Those of us who have a tactical job to do need to be very watchful so that we can solve the problems that crop up during a game. It all helps our team-mates to get forward into goalscoring positions.”
Germany coach, Joachim Low: "Chile are unbelievably flexible, more so than perhaps any other team. They're very unpredictable. Their play is variable, but the way they play is well thought-out. It's not arbitrary, they constantly change positions."
BAYERN BUDDIES and ARSENAL AMIGOS: Arturo Vidal will go head-to-head with clubmate, Joshua Kimmich this evening. Arsenal’s Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez will also line up against each other.
Earlier, Australia came from behind to draw 1-1 with Cameroon. GROUP B AS IT STANDS: Chile 3pts... 2) Germany 3pts... 3) Australia 1 pt... 4) Cameroon 1 pt.
