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+4' PEEP PEEP PEEP! Full-Time: Germany 1-1 Chile

01:20 (IST)23 JUN 2017

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.

01:17 (IST)23 JUN 2017

3 minutes of added time. Is there a winner on the cards?

01:16 (IST)23 JUN 2017

90' Substitution: Francisco Silva comes on to replace Aranguiz.

01:15 (IST)23 JUN 2017

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.

01:14 (IST)23 JUN 2017

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.

01:11 (IST)23 JUN 2017

84' Rodriguez - who has just been brought on - has a good chance to put his side ahead but is guilty of hitting a tame shot, which does no harm to Germany.

01:09 (IST)23 JUN 2017

82' Substitution: Vargas is replaced by Rodriguez.

01:08 (IST)23 JUN 2017

01:08 (IST)23 JUN 2017

79' YELLOW CARD: Beausejour is booked for bringing down Kimmich some 25 yards from goal.

01:07 (IST)23 JUN 2017

Both the teams are very cautious in their approach not affording the other team to sniff a half-chance.

01:04 (IST)23 JUN 2017

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.

01:02 (IST)23 JUN 2017

That was the first shot on target of the second half.

01:01 (IST)23 JUN 2017

73' Germany have a decent chance with Stindl testing Herrera from a narrow-angle but his shot is gathered by the goalkeeper.

00:59 (IST)23 JUN 2017

The game has opened up a bit and we are set for a thrilling end. Who will come out on top?

00:59 (IST)23 JUN 2017

71' Substitution: Paulo Diaz comes on to replace the injured Medel.

00:58 (IST)23 JUN 2017

Gary Medel is down on the pitch, receiving treatment. He must have tweaked something while running back to cover Can.

00:57 (IST)23 JUN 2017

69' Emre Can has space down the left and he darts forward but the Liverpool midfielder takes one touch too heavy allowing the Chilean defenders to recover and end the move.

00:55 (IST)23 JUN 2017

66' Germany have a chance and it is their captain Draxler who is trying to make things happen. The PSG forward lifts a ball into the box to catch the run of Kimmich but the Bayern Munich man cannot get his header on target.

00:52 (IST)23 JUN 2017

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.

00:49 (IST)23 JUN 2017

00:42 (IST)23 JUN 2017

54' Chile break forward and Isla has the ball on the right. The wing-back spotted that Ter Stegen was off his line and attempted a cheeky cross/shot which forced the Barcelona man to back peddle and see it off.

00:40 (IST)23 JUN 2017

53' Isla goes down clutching his ankle. The defender recovers and play resumes.

00:38 (IST)23 JUN 2017

50' Isla and Vidal combine before the Bayern Munich man attempts a through ball from the outside, which Vargas just fails to get on the end of. Promising start for the South American side.

00:35 (IST)23 JUN 2017

48' Chile win a free-kick in a very promising position and Sanchez stands over it.
Sule brought down Hernandez at the edge of the box on the right and Alexis stepped up to beat Ter Stegen. The Arsenal forward's free-kick is just about a couple of inches over the bar with the German shot-stopper well and truly beaten.

00:32 (IST)23 JUN 2017

46' And we are underway in the second half!

00:32 (IST)23 JUN 2017

The players are making their way onto the pitch once again as we near restart.

00:19 (IST)23 JUN 2017

Stay tuned, we will be back with updates of the second-half in 5 minutes.

00:18 (IST)23 JUN 2017

Chile started the game brightly and raced to an early lead courtesy of Alexis Sanchez's 6th-minute strike, who punished his Arsenal teammate Mustafi for a poor pass. Pizzi's side dominated proceedings for most of the half before Die Mannschaft equalised with 4 minutes left on the clock. Lars Stindl placed the ball past a diving Herrera after a swift counter-attack by the Germans.

00:17 (IST)23 JUN 2017

HALF-TIME: Germany 1-1 Chile

00:17 (IST)23 JUN 2017

00:15 (IST)23 JUN 2017

45' 1 minute of added time

00:14 (IST)23 JUN 2017

Lars Stindl now has two goals in two games in the competition.

00:12 (IST)23 JUN 2017

Emre Can is afforded all the space in the world to bomb forward through the middle. The Liverpool man sprays it out to Hector down the left, who puts an excellent cross into the path of Stindl, who bundles it home past Herrera to bring the two teams on level terms.

The Chilean players just watched and waited as Can burst forward, someone should have stepped out and tackled him or closed him down.

00:11 (IST)23 JUN 2017

41' GOOOAAAAALLLL! Germany equalize! Stindl scores! 1-1

00:10 (IST)23 JUN 2017

00:08 (IST)23 JUN 2017

38' Chile break forward with intent as Aranguiz pings a ball forward into the path of Alexis, after some neat one-touch play with his teammates. The Arsenal man is too far wide and his attempt to find a teammate is cut out.

00:06 (IST)23 JUN 2017

36' Emre Can chests down the ball just outside the box and unleashes a right-footed half-volley which sails wide.

00:06 (IST)23 JUN 2017

Stat Attack: Germany have had only 2 touches inside Chile's penalty box so far in the game.

00:05 (IST)23 JUN 2017

35' Germany make a rare foray forward into the opposition half but are thwarted by the Chilean defence.

00:03 (IST)23 JUN 2017

The referee gives Diaz a talking to for bringing down Stindl with an overzealous challenge.

00:02 (IST)23 JUN 2017

33' The game has slowed down a little bit with Chile still not allowing Germany to play out of the back.

23:59 (IST)22 JUN 2017

29' Alexis Sanchez is toying with the German defence. The Chilean forward finds himself in the box on a couple of occasions and gets the better of his marker but fails to put a ball past the sea of German defenders.

23:58 (IST)22 JUN 2017

28' Sanchez is brought down just outside the German box and Vidal continues forward with the ball but is blocked. The ball falls to Isla, who tries to beat Ter Stegen from range but wins a corner instead.

23:56 (IST)22 JUN 2017

The opener by Alexis Sanchez was the 400th goal scored in the FIFA Confederations Cup. Landmark!

23:55 (IST)22 JUN 2017

25' Beausejour and Alexis combined down the left, before the Arsenal man tried to take on one too many defenders on his own. He is dispossessed and Germany make their way forward.
