The Chileans arrived in Russia with the expressed ambition of winning the Confederations Cup, but why stop there, with the Chilean football federation president tabling the 2026 World Cup proposal as potential joint bid.

"I'm very happy to be Chile's top-scorer now, our dream is to win this tournament and we feel we have a chance", said Sanchez.

Germany are second to Chile in the table only by a single goal with both teams on four points while Cameroon and Australia have a point each.

The South Americans went in search of a second but were pegged back after 41 minutes when Stindl converted a pinpoint Jonas Hector cross.

Chile and Germany are level on 4 points while Australia and Cameroon each have one.

Since Loew took charge as head coach after Germany finished third at the 2006 World Cup on home soil, the team has always reached the semi-finals at either European championships or World Cup finals.

"I am very satisfied with my boys", he said.

"I thought it [would help Cameroon] before the tournament because I saw it was different players than normal", Broos told a pre-match news conference at Fisht Stadium when assessing the Germany squad.

"My job is to stay professional, it's not about 100 caps, it's about beating Chile and trying to do good things for our country". "It was a game of the highest standard". A give-and-go with Arturo Vidal left Alexis Sanchez alone with the ball in front of Germany goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen and the Arsenal striker delivered.

To win the group, Chile must match Germany's result against Cameroon.

In the other Group B match to take place today, Australia and Cameroon took a share of the spoils as their match also finished 1-1.

André-Frank Zambo Anguiss put the African champions ahead in first-half stoppage team with a deft lob over Australian goalkeeper Matthew Ryan.

Milligan came to the Socceroos rescue by slotting home a spot-kick on 60 minutes as both sides picked up their first Confed Cup point.

Led by the ever-energetic Alexis Sanchez, Chile moved the ball quickly across midfield and made darting runs into the penalty area, thus putting the inexperienced Germans on the backfoot straight away.

Chile vs Australia will be shown live on ITV4.

"We will not just be hoping, we will prepare to try to win". We have to beat them with two-goals difference. "We have to see if there is any possibility of partnering with some of our neighbours and see if we can make a bid".
