Germany's Loew to rotate against Chile with 100th win in sight

Rita Gibson | 24 June, 2017, 23:33

"In some situations we showed we can play good football, but we lost our grip on the opponent in the last 20, 25 minutes", said Goretzka.

His teammate, midfielder Lars Stindl, said the match with Chile was not an easy walk because it "is a very experienced and aggressive team".

Both sides will be confident of victory after winning their opening Confederations Cup fixtures earlier this week.

The matchup between the world champions and the two-time Copa America winners was perhaps the most hotly anticipated clash of the tournament, and it certainly didn't disappoint in the first half.

"We controlled large parts of the game and they were pretty unsafe, we lacked some composure in front of goal", said Australia coach Ange Postecoglou. Their first-team players are already overflowing with big-match experience; why tire them out with an end-of-season tournament?

Indeed, Chile could have doubled their lead shortly afterwards when Eduardo Vargas unleashed a powerful long-range effort which crashed off the underside of the bar in the 19th minute.

Germany equalized the score in the 41st minute through midfielder Lars Stindl.

China willing to maintain coordination with USA on Korean Peninsular issue
China has backed the Kim dynasty since it took charge after the Korean War, in part to prevent having a US ally on its border. The United States and China have agreed to expedite joint efforts for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The central match of the nearest Thursday can be called a duel between the national teams of Germany and Chile, which will be held at the Kazan Arena.

However, chances were hard to come by for both sides in the second half, which prompted Chile to introduce Paulo Diaz for Gary Medel.

"With all due respect to the other two teams, Chile are the most salient team in this group". "He's a great player, one of the best in the Premier League". Both the teams will be looking to attack right from the kick off whistle and a free scoring game looks very much on the cards. "Sometimes we are better than our rivals and win, sometimes we lose".

"I'm very proud of the intensity we played with", said Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi. Germany and Chile are the favourites to progress to the knockout stage from Group B and even if one of them lose today they can still make it to the next round as long as they win their final group stage match.

Mexico play Russian Federation at the Kazan Arena, while New Zealand entertain Portugal at the Saint Petersburg Stadium.

Participants in the 2017 Confederations Cup are hosts Russian Federation, 2014 FIFA World Cup Champions Germany, 2015 Copa America Champions Chile, 2015 AFC Asian Cup Champion Australia, 2015 CONCACAF Gold Cup winners Mexico, 2016 UEFA Euro Cup champs Portugal, OFC (Oceania Football Confederation) Nations Cup victors New Zealand and 2017 CAF Africa Cup of Nations Champion Cameroon.
