Confederations Cup: Draw enough for Chile to advance to semi-final

Show Grid

The other semifinal on Wednesday sees Portugal play Chile, which finished second in Group B after drawing 1-1 with Australia in Sunday's other game.

Aboubakar and substitute Moumi Ngamaleu then sighted the Germany goal, but the African champions were reduced to 10 men when Mabouka raked his studs down Can's knee.

Colombian referee Wilmar Roldan called the decision back to the VAR (Video Assistance Referee) before dismissing Mabouka, although he had to check twice after originally dismissing the wrong player.

James Troisi scored his first Australia goal for over two years to give the Socceroos - who needed a two-goal victory to move above their opponents in Group B - a surprise half-time lead. On the other end, Cameroon won one game out of their last 5 with 3 losses and 1 draw.

MOSCOW - Martin Rodriguez rescued a 1-1 draw for Chile against Australia on Sunday to send the South American champions through to a Confederations Cup semi-final against Portugal.

Chile lost possession after Bravo had tried to play the ball out from defence and Robbie Kruse overcame a challenge from Gonzalo Jara to divert the ball into the path of Troisi to dink a cool finish over the keeper from six yards.

"In fact that could have been a quarter-final in the World Cup, such was the level of this game", said Juan Antonio Pizzi. "Now we must refocus on our next ambition". "When you get in players' faces, it doesn't matter who they are".

"We wanted to get out of the group and we haven't, so we are disappointed", said Postecoglou.

How it happened: look back at RNZ's live coverage on today's racing here. "I don't think we sailed that well today, to be honest. We have to learn from our mistakes and come out fighting stronger tomorrow, that's it, that's all we will be thinking about".

"From my perspective, it was a great performance".

Alexis Sanchez appealed for a penalty in the 26th when he went down in the penalty area following Mark Milligan's desperate lunge, but the video review system said no foul.

The central defender blazed over after being teed up by Tim Cahill.

Chile goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, playing for the first time in two months due to a calf injury, showed no signs of rust, showing quick reactions to block Massimo Luongo's 36th-minute effort at the near post.

Arturo Vidal almost replied instantly when his stooping header was blocked on the line by Milligan with the rebound eluding Jose Fuenzalida.

After the break, Australia remained in the ascendancy, but were punished for not converting their goal scoring chances.

Ryan repelled efforts from Vargas and Sanchez early in the second half as Chile threatened an equalising goal, which eventually came after 67 minutes when Rodriguez poked the ball home from close range from Vargas' downward header after Australia had failed to clear their lines. The Arsenal forward then swung in a cross which Vargas headed narrowly wide of the unguarded goal.

Eduardo Vargas beat his marker to a looping ball in the area, knocking down into the path of Rodriguez who smuggled the ball beyond Matt Ryan for his first global goal.
