01:30 (IST)19 JUN 2017

Chile thought they had taken the lead just before the stroke of half-time when Vargas lifted the ball over Ondoa but it was ruled out for offside by VAR. They finally took the lead when Vidal thumped a header into the back of the net from an Alexis Sanchez cross before the final piece of drama.
Alexis Sanchez beat the goalkeeper and a defender to try and double his side's lead but it ricocheted off a defender only for Vargas to bundle it home. The assistant ruled it out for offside but the decision was overruled by VAR, who deemed that the goal was legal.
VAR - Video Assistant Referee - made his debut only last night and it has already overturned 3 decisions. This could be a path-breaker or a deal-breaker, depends on which side of the fence you are on.

01:27 (IST)19 JUN 2017

Chile have run out victors here. They sure deserved their win, having been the better side for the majority of the game. 
Alexis Sanchez came on and changed the game for his side. Cameroon will be ruing missing out on a point tonight.

01:23 (IST)19 JUN 2017

FULL-TIME: Cameroon 0-2 Chile 

01:23 (IST)19 JUN 2017

Some auditioning this is from VAR.

01:23 (IST)19 JUN 2017

Chile were denied by VAR earlier and now they have been awarded a goal by the Video Assistant Referee.

Alexis Sanchez latched on to an over the top ball and ran clear towards goal. He got the better of the defender with a slight feint and did the same with the goalkeeper before opting to shoot with his left. The shot hits a defender and falls to Vargas, who makes no mistake.
The assistant had his flag up and initially, the goal was not given by the referee before VAR was consulted and it was concluded that neither Alexis nor Vargas were offside and the goal was legit.

01:20 (IST)19 JUN 2017

Chile are denied once again by the official.

01:17 (IST)19 JUN 2017

88' Almost a second for Chile but Mabouka is there to ensure that a cross from the right wing doesn't find its way through to Alexis Sanchez.

01:16 (IST)19 JUN 2017

Cameroon have not given up, not just yet. They know they can nick one back. Will they be able to do so?

01:15 (IST)19 JUN 2017

86' And Cameroon make their first change! 
Substitution: Siani comes off for Ngamaleu.

01:11 (IST)19 JUN 2017

It was Alexis Sanchez, who else, who created the goal. The Arsenal forward got the better of his marker to send a cross into the box and Vidal was on hand to guide it into the back of the net. No offside this time and Chile have the vital goal.

01:09 (IST)19 JUN 2017

81' GOOOAAAALLLL!! Vidal scores to give Chile the lead!

01:09 (IST)19 JUN 2017

01:00 (IST)19 JUN 2017

00:59 (IST)19 JUN 2017

00:55 (IST)19 JUN 2017

66' YELLOW CARD: Aboubakar is fouled by Jara and the Chilean goes into the book of the referee.

00:49 (IST)19 JUN 2017

00:46 (IST)19 JUN 2017

58' Substitution: Puch comes off to be replaced by Alexis Sanchez.

00:46 (IST)19 JUN 2017

00:45 (IST)19 JUN 2017

55' Anguissa's cross from the right wing had put Herrera into an awkward position. He wasn't sure whether to palm it away or go ahead and try to gather, he ends up diverting it behind for a corner.

00:43 (IST)19 JUN 2017

Alexis Sanchez is seen warming up. He is Pizzi's trump card if they are unable to find a breakthrough.

00:35 (IST)19 JUN 2017

46' And we are underway in the second half!

00:22 (IST)19 JUN 2017

A controversial end to a frantic half. It had chances, near misses and some excellent saves, and at the very end,Chile celebrated thinking they have taken the lead only for the referee to rule it out for offside after consulting the VAR.

00:22 (IST)19 JUN 2017

HALF-TIME: Cameroon 0-0 Chile

00:20 (IST)19 JUN 2017

WAIT! Controversy here as the referee rules out the goal after consulting the Video Assistant Referee. Vargas was adjudged to be offside by VAR, he was millimeters offside, if at all. Still 0-0!
Vidal is absolutely livid as the two teams make their way back into the tunnel.

00:19 (IST)19 JUN 2017

The ball is played down the right and Vidal has it, the Bayern Munich midfielder plays it through to Vargas who just lifts it over an onrushing Ondoa.

00:17 (IST)19 JUN 2017

00:06 (IST)19 JUN 2017

00:04 (IST)19 JUN 2017

32' Aranguiz whips in the free-kick and Cameroon are able to clear initially. But the ball is played back into the box and after some ping-pong the referee adjudges them to be offside.

00:02 (IST)19 JUN 2017

31' Vidal goes down under a heavy challenge from Siani and Chile have a free-kick in a dangerous position.

00:02 (IST)19 JUN 2017

30 minutes up in the game and we could and should have seen a couple of goals.

23:58 (IST)18 JUN 2017

27' Ondoa denies Chile again and this time it is Fuensalida who cannot guide the ball past the shot-stopper. Vargas slips Fuensalida into the box past the defenders but the shot by the midfielder is palmed away to safety.

23:56 (IST)18 JUN 2017

25' WHAT A HIT BY PUCH! The forward cuts in from the left, finds himself in a lot of space and lets it fly from around 30 yards. The ball swerves away from Ondoa but the goalkeeper is able to palm it away.
