Chile into semis after draw with profligate Australia

Australia, meanwhile, were finding it tough to get the ball off La Roja in the opening 20 minutes, which led to a lack of chances.

The Germans will have to display greater urgency against Mexico than they did in the first half against Cameroon.

Cameroon, who lost to Chile and drew with Australia in their previous group games, squandered most of their possession.

The indomitable Lions will lock horns with Germany, the World cup defending champions at the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Russian Federation today June 25 at 4:00pm. "It's good to see how we were able to. up the ante".

He is one of a handful of players to score at three separate World Cup tournaments, after his goal against Serbia in 2010 as well as strikes against Chile and the Netherlands in Brazil in 2014. One particularly hard challenge from Tim Cahill left Chile midfielder Charles Aranguiz in pain and he was substituted at half-time.

Veteran forward Tim Cahill collected his 100th global cap at Spartak Stadium, joining long-serving former goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer (109) as the only other Australia player to reach the landmark. "When you get in players' faces, it doesn't matter who they are".

"Thanks also to the players, those players who were perhaps not here with us today who played a lot in the past or just a few matches".

Early reports from CBC News indicates that at least three people are dead, and at least 30 others are now missing. The official said rescued people are being sent to the local hospital in Guatape.

Chile made a fast start, Arturo Vidal meeting Jose Fuenzalida's cross and forcing Mathew Ryan to parry away his volley from the edge of the area, with Eduardo Vargas unable to convert the rebound.

Alexis Sanchez went tumbling to ground early on following a last-ditch intervention from Mark Milligan, but the video assistant referee dismissed penalty claims as replays showed a clear touch from the Australian defender.

Troisi's 42nd-minute goal put the pressure on Chile, which responded well and would have equalized through Vidal just before the break, but for Dylan McGowan's last-ditch block.

The best chance of a tight first-half fell to Germany's Joshua Kimmich as he headed wide from six yards with the goal gaping.

The group's other tie between Chile and Australia ended in a 1-1 draw.

Australia continued to push forward, going close once again with a mishit effort from Jamie MacLaren in front of goal, and again in added time when Gonzalo Jara blocked Kruse's shot.
