A draw, in the end, is a fair result. The game started brightly with Chile dominating in the opening half an hour. La Roja took the lead through Alexis Sanchez in the 6th minute, who punished the Germans for a defensive lapse. The South American side should have added a couple more in the first-half but it was not to be and Lars Stindl scored his second in two games to bring his side on level terms.

The second-half was bereft of any clear cut chances with both the teams employing a cautious approach. They were both not ready to concede, allowing the other to capitalize and a game that started off, promising to be a thrilled, ended in a dire draw after an incredibly boring second half.

The important thing is that both the teams are now on 4 points, and are almost certain to make it to the semi-finals, especially after the game between Cameroon and Australia finished in a 1-1 draw earlier in the evening.

90+2' Can has the ball around 30 yards from goal and the Liverpool man wants to make the headlines as he attempts a left-footed shot from there, which will never threaten any goalkeeper. It takes a slight deflection off a defender and Herrera gather is comfortably.

3 minutes of added time. Is there a winner on the cards?
...
90' Substitution: Francisco Silva comes on to replace Aranguiz.
...
88' It is now Draxler's turn to show off some nifty skills as he makes his run forward, the PSG forward gets into a good position but instead of opting to cross wants to take on his marker and fails.
...
86' Isla has the ball on the right and he cuts inside before spraying it to Sanchez. The Arsenal superstar does not opt to shoot and instead tries to find the run of Isla, however, Isla cannot get on the end of it and Germany survive.

Both the teams are very cautious in their approach not affording the other team to sniff a half-chance.
...
76' Sule bursts forward and crosses the ball into the box, the ball takes a slight deflection and evades almost everyone before falling into the path of Kimmich down the right. The Bayern Munich man lays it off for Draxler, who attempts to beat Herrera from near the edge of the box but his shot is blocked.
...
That was the first shot on target of the second half.
...
73' Germany have a decent chance with Stindl testing Herrera from a narrow-angle but his shot is gathered by the goalkeeper.

The game has opened up a bit and we are set for a thrilling end. Who will come out on top?
...
71' Substitution: Paulo Diaz comes on to replace the injured Medel.

...
64' Yellow Card: Alexis Sanchez is the first Chilean player to go into the referee's books for kicking a ball out after he was incorrectly ruled offside.
The Chilean fans didn't like the decision of the referee, nor did the Arsenal striker himself.
