Confederations Cup: Portugal leave it late to win dramatic 3rd place playoff

Stindl's third goal of the World Cup warm-up tournament came completely against the run of play in a first-half dominated by Chile, but the more experienced south American champions could find no way past a side that is effective on the counterattack.

Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi said his team wouldn't underestimate the young Germans, whose time at top clubs made them wise beyond their years. Five of their starting line-up on Sunday would have been eligible for the U21's final against Spain, which include two-goal hero Leon Goretzka and Timo Werner, who both now lead the championship's goal tallies with three apiece.

Having knocked Euro 2016 winners Portugal out of the Confed Cup in Wednesday's semi-final, Vidal says beating Germany's young guns will prove Chile are the best. You need superhuman performances at the World Cup.

Chile showed their penalty shoot-out pedigree again in the Kazan semi, as goalkeeper Claudio Bravo saved all three Portugal spot-kicks after it finished goalless after extra-time.

Both include Fox Sports One, which carries the Germany Vs. Chile match live from Russian Federation. "We have to try to take care of this so that we can all enjoy more competitions like this one in the future".

Chile's early onslaught continued, with Vidal and Eduardo Vargas both trying their luck. Germany, knowing once they throw in the ball, the play can not be reviewed, wasted time to buy VAR officials a few more seconds to see the elbow.

Trump's misogyny and U.S. media
Trump. "I am thinking about changing the name #FakeNews CNN to #FraudNewsCNN!" "And this obviously doesn't help do that". The President fired off a series of tweets on Saturday evening that seemed to argue he should keep up his Twitter habit.

After Lars Stindl scored following some Chile-style high pressing from the Germans, Chile looked frustrated.

Ahead of Sunday's soccer final between Chile and Germany at the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, the Chilean side say they have everything to play for.

Die Mannschaft have fielded virtually everyone in the roster they brought to the tournament, giving as much game possible to every youngster while also keeping the likes of Julian Draxler, Joshua Kimmich included in every game.

A Spanish-language US live stream will be available via Telemundo at this link, while in Germany ORF TV will live stream the Confederations Cup Final at this link. "We're looking forward and we know Chile is a very strong opponent but we want to deliver the best". Chile have excellent players who can score from the spot.

They were thought as lightweights even in their own continent at the start of this decade.

Chile flew into the game in their inimitable style and Alexis Sanchez should have put them in front, but shot wide from close range after keeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen parried Vidal's shot. "It was a really tough battle but we played very good in attack, we managed to create plenty of chances and I think it's a deserved win for us", said centre-back Pepe. Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. Moscow Standard Time at Krestovsky Stadium in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Sunday, July 2.
