DAY REPLAYED – While both Group B favourites at the FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 successfully navigated their way to the semi-finals, Germany and Chile will feel very different about their respective results and performances this evening.

The world champions comfortably defeated Cameroon to record their second win at this year’s Tournament of Champions and give Joachim Low his 100th victory in his 150th match as head coach. Although La Roja were 1-0 down at the break and seemed in danger of making an early exit from the competition, Martin Rodriguez netted an equaliser to ensure his team move on to the next round.

Timo Werner was awarded the Budweiser Man of the Match award after becoming the first German player to score a brace in the history of the tournament. Despite garnering the most votes from fans in the afternoon’s other game, Australia’s goalscorer James Troisi could not stop his side being eliminated as Tim Cahill won his 100th international cap.
