Go again

Deja vu for Germany and Chile as the two sides meet again in Sunday's final.

World class players, attacking flair, questionable defending. It should be a belter.

See you later.

Jide Yusuf: Trust Germany to come with their A-game! For Mexico it's too little and too late! Let's have a sweet final come on Chile!

We're just about done here but if you fancy a bit more live football then the Europa League first-qualifying round games are going strong.

Follow them here.

Germany hosted the Confederations Cup back in 2005 but this is the first time they have reached the final of the tournament. They look strong, but Chile have Alexis Sanchez. Should be a tasty encounter.

Portugal may be in the third-place play-off but Cristiano Ronaldo won't be sticking around for that one. He's been allowed to leave Russia to see his new-born twins.

Ronaldo confirmed the news on Facebook, saying: "I'm very happy, finally, to be with my children for the first time."

Fabian Pavez the Dre: So looks like teams from the same group will face again in the final and third place playoff.

Good spot, Fabian. The third-place play-off sees Portugal up against Mexico. The two sides drew 2-2 in the group stage.

Germany 4-1 Mexico

Germany will know all about Chile - and vice versa - they faced each other just seven days ago in the group stage of this tournament. That match ended 1-1 with Lars Stindl cancelling out Alexis Sanchez's opener.

Ayo Obit: Germany's second team is walking this #ConfederationsCup2017 . Next year's #Russia2018 will be a stroll!

FULL-TIME

Germany 4-1 Mexico

Actually, you can rule out another goal because that's it. Germany are through to the Confederations Cup final, where they will meet Chile on Sunday.

Germany celebrate

CLOSE!

Germany 4-1 Mexico

My word, what a finish!

Two chances in quick succession for Mexico now as Javier Hernandez's shot kisses the far post and then Raul Jimenez heads just wide.

Don't rule out another goal yet...

GOAL - Germany 4-1 Mexico

Amin Younes

Now it's definitely too late for Mexico.

As their opponents pushed up in a desperate attempt to get another goal back Germany score through Amin Younes, who pokes in from Emre Can's pass.

GOAL - Germany 3-1 Mexico

Marco Fabian

What a shot!

Out of nothing, Marco Fabian pulls one back for Mexico with an absolute powerdrive from over 30 yards.

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen can only watch the ball whistle past his head and into the net.

Surely too late for Mexico though?

Germany 3-0 Mexico

First proper showing of Hirving Lazano's pace since he came on as he gets away from tired Germany defenders down the right and crosses for Javier Hernandez. Matthias Ginter is there to it first, though.

Germany 3-0 Mexico

Corner number 348 for Mexico. Miguel Layun takes it and Rafael Marquez gets his 38-year-old head on it, straight at Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

That's Mexico's 21st shot on goal and seventh on target. Can't say they haven't had chances.

SUBSTITUTION

Germany 3-0 Mexico

Final change for Germany as skipper Julian Draxler makes way for Ajax winger Amin Younes.

Germany 3-0 Mexico

Lazy effort by Hector Herrera as he launches a shot well over. Looks like Mexico have accepted their fate.

SUBSTITUTION

Germany 3-0 Mexico

Second change for Germany as Bayer Leverkusen winger Julian Brandt comes on for his 10th international appearance. He replaces Lars Stindl for the closing stages.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Germany 3-0 Mexico

Now the woodwork denies Mexico as Raul Jimenez rattles the crossbar. That ball just won't go in for them.

YELLOW CARD

Germany 3-0 Mexico

A battle between two recent substitutes sees Emre Can get his challenge wrong as he stands on Rafael Marquez's foot. Straight in the book for that one.

GREAT SAVE!

Germany 3-0 Mexico

Big chance, big save.

Mexico work the ball from left to right for Miguel Layun, who is unmarked with a clear sight on goal. He smashes a powerful first-time drive towards the near post but Marc-Andre Ter Stegen thumps it clear.

More ref woe.......the first text refers to the push on Werner, the second to the third goal.

Should have been a penalty. Perfect opportunity to use video ref surely??

Tom bilbow

Such an obvious example of why the offside rule needs revising -- how could Warner not be considered "active" and gaining an advantage

SUBSTITUTION

Germany 3-0 Mexico

No hat-trick for Leon Goretzka. He's replaced by Liverpool's Emre Can for the final half hour or so.

Mexico boss Juan Carlos Osorio throws the dice onto the table for the final time. He makes his third and final substitution, bringing on 38-year-old defender Rafael Marquez for Jonathan Dos Santos.

CLOSE!

Germany 3-0 Mexico

Marco Fabian's first touch of the ball sees him come close to scoring, but he puts his shot into the sidenetting. Mexico have had their chances, but just haven't been clinical enough.

SUBSTITUTION

Germany 3-0 Mexico

Another change for Mexico as Giovanni Dos Santos, who had a good first half, is replaced by Marco Fabian. Like for like swap as the Eintracht Frankfurt man takes up position in midfield.

GOAL - Germany 3-0 Mexico

Timo Werner

Game, set and match, surely?

It's a nicely-worked goal, but also a controversial one. Julian Draxler creates it, playing the ball through the defence for Jonas Hector, who squares for Timo Werner to sidefoot home.

Werner, however, was offside when Draxler made the initial pass, but was onside for Hector's assist. Gained an advantage by being offside in the first instance?

Germany celebrate

YELLOW CARD

Germany 2-0 Mexico

Raul Jimenez picks up the game's first booking with a foul 30 yards from goal. Julian Draxler fancies the free-kick and bends a shot round the wall but Guillermo Ochoa is behind it all the way.

Raul Jimenez

No VAR to be seen?

Germany 2-0 Mexico

Should Germany have a penalty?

Not for the first time the Mexico defence is caught napping as Timo Werner races through. He delays his shot as he gets into the area and looked to be pushed in the back by Hector Herrera. Its enough to put him off his stride and Werner drags his effort just wide of the far post.

Germany 2-0 Mexico

Another chance for Mexico as Raul Jimenez cuts inside Leon Goretzka and shoots at goal. It's straight at Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

Germany 2-0 Mexico

First corner of the half goes Mexico's way. It is pinged in with pace and Raul Jimenez flicks it on into Javier Hernandez's face and the ball deflects over the bar.

Germany seem to have a conveyor of raw talent and consistently perform at every major tournament. The Premiership should look long and hard at the Bundesliga as a model for the future.

Antony in Banchory.

Germany vs Mexico - great to see Leon Goretzka doing well. Had him do wonders for my side in championship manager!

Germany 2-0 Mexico

Manchester City fans might want to watch Hirving Lozano's performance. He has been linked with a move to Pep Guardiola's side.

Lozano has taken up position on the left flank and his first bit of action seems him try to squeeze his way through two German players. No joy.

KICK-OFF

Germany 2-0 Mexico

Mexico get the second half under way.

SUBSTITUTION

Germany 2-0 Mexico

A change for Mexico for the second half. Javier Aquino has gone off with pacey forward Hirving Lozano replacing him.

'More of the same'

Germany 2-0 Mexico

Germany legend Lothar Matthaus has liked what he has seen so far from this young German side.

Thomas Giles: Been to all host cities during the tournament. Everybody very welcoming. Then again, if you know RUS, this is not a surprise.

Thomas has been impressed by Russia's hosting of the Confederation Cup, bodes well for next year's World Cup? What's been your impression of tournament football in Russia so far?

Have you been watching and decided that perhaps it will be worth giving a go?

Germany 2-0 Mexico

Strength in depth indeed, Freddie.

Five of Germany's starting XI are young enough to have faced England at the European Under-21s Championship - goalscorer Leon Goretzka, Matthias Ginter, Benjamin Henrichs, Timo Werner and Joshua Kimmich.

HALF-TIME

Germany 2-0 Mexico

Advantage Germany at the break, but Mexico piled on the pressure towards the end of the half. More goals in this one.

Germany 2-0 Mexico

Five corners and 10 free-kicks for Mexico. Germany are giving them plenty of opportunities from set-pieces but Mexico are not taking advantage as another Hector Herrera free-kick into the box is dealt with.

Just one minute tagged on at the end of the half.
