'VAR a shambles'

Chile 0-1 Germany

Former Arsenal defender Lee Dixon on ITV has been reacting to the decision to not send off Gonzalo Jara for elbowing Timo Werner in the face.

"If you look at sports that use VAR (Video Assistant Referees) – we’re the laughing stock," said Dixon. "This tournament has been a shambles as far as VAR is concerned. I was joking, ‘I bet he gives him a yellow’. It’s not even a red, it’s a purple, it’s obvious."

Mixed emotions

Some reaction from the Premier League teams - with Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool players experiencing mixed fortunes.

FULL-TIME - GERMANY WIN THE CONFEDERATIONS CUP

Germany are the champions. The world champions are now the Confederations Cup winners.

It is a win that also takes them top of the Fifa world rankings. They will be the team to beat in Russia for next year's World Cup.

GREAT SAVE!

Chile 0-1 Germany

Is that the save that wins the Confederations Cup? Alexis Sanchez's free-kick is over the wall and on target but Marc-Andre Ter Stegen is equal to it and pushes it away.

Chile 0-1 Germany

Foul by Matthias Ginter on Leonardo Valencia. Twenty-five yards out. Alexis Sanchez range.

Chile 0-1 Germany

A free-kick on the halfway line for Chile, so who should take it, but goalkeeper Claudio Bravo. It is an absolute waste though. Get back in goal, man.

YELLOW CARD

Chile 0-1 Germany

Liverpool's Emre Can, who has only just come on for Timo Werner, thinks he has won a foul and decides to unleash his inner rugby union player by randomly holding on to the ball with his hands. He gets booked for causing a bit of a scuffle with his time-wasting antics.

Another Premier League player, Claudio Bravo, is also cautioned for his part in the follow-up handbags. A bit silly and a bit needless from all concerned.

Sebastian Rudy is then cautioned for fouling Arturo Vidal.

Chile 0-1 Germany

Can Germany hang on? They are three minutes plus injury-time from the title.

CLOSE!

Chile 0-1 Germany

That should be the equaliser. What a chance. What a chance. Alexis Sanchez plays a ball forward, substitute Edson Puch keeps it alive by getting to it before the dead-ball line and he pulls it back for fellow sub Angelo Sagal, who is there eight yards out.

It might be his first touch, and it is an awful one. He leans back, falling off balance and spoons the ball well over the top. It should be 1-1, instead it is a head-in-hands moment for everyone connected with Chile.

KoloKK: This is the kind of finals, FIFA always wants. Fiery, feisty, competitive, edgy. A complete advert for the beautiful game.

GREAT SAVE!

Chile 0-1 Germany

A chance for Chile to get an equaliser. A low strike from Charles Aranaguiz is heading into the bottom corner, but goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stergen pushes it around the post.

That is Aranguiz's last action as he and Eduardo Vargas come off with Angelo Sagal and Edson Puch the men coming on for Chile. They have less than 10 minutes to make an impact.

'Three minutes wasted'

Chile 0-1 Germany

Former England keeper David James weighs in...

Elbow + VAR = yellow card and 3 minutes wasted #CHIGER

Get Involved #bbcfootball

Chile 0-1 Germany

You lot are not impressed with that yellow, not red card, handed out to Chile's Gonzalo Jara for elbowing Timo Werner in the face.

Alex Haworth: I think that might be the worst decision I've ever seen in football, bearing in mind that the referee has watched replays.

Jordan Ramsden: If that wasn't a red card offence from Jara, then I'm worried as to what the assistants would have deemed to be one.

Sunday Ogunmoye‏: It turns out even the VAR review cannot stop referees from making baffling decisions. How on earth did Jara escape a red card???

'Not getting VAR'

Chile 0-1 Germany

Former Liverpool and Spain winger Luis Garcia has his say on VAR usage.

Still not getting the VAR !! If you have to take a decision and stop the match, must be something that change the game !!

Chile 0-1 Germany

Chile's Arturo Vidal is left punching the ground in frustration after having a shot pushed over the top. It comes after Alexis Sanchez goes to ground in the penalty area after running into Sebastian Rudy.

Chile ask for the referee to have a second look at it.

He does, via the Video Assistant Referee, but it was never going to be a penalty. A complete waste of the referee's time there.

Chile 0-1 Germany

Excellent, throw-your-body-in-the-way defending from Germany's Sebastian Rudy, who dives to the ground to block Alexis Sanchez's goal-bound attempt. Proper defending that.

'Laughable'

Chile 0-1 Germany

BBC Sport's chief football writer Phil McNulty is not impressed with referee Milorad Mazic's decision to not send off Chile's Gonzalo Jara.

Deliberate elbow to the face brings a yellow card under VAR? Laughable.

Alex Storey‏: What's the point of the VAR if it doesn't solve any problems but actually creates them? Red card all day long there.

Chile 0-1 Germany

We will certainly be hearing about that decision if Germany don't win this match. It looked blatant, it looked nasty from Gonzalo Jara as he elbowed Timo Werner and it looked like it should have been a red card.

More controversy about the VAR system. The referee had a look at it on television, but came to the opinion it was only worth a yellow card, not a red.

Chile 0-1 Germany

It was a cheap shot by Gonzalo Jara, catching Timo Werner with an elbow to the jaw as the ball was near the touchline.

The referee, after consultation with the video assistant referees, only shows a yellow to Jara, who is very, very, very lucky to still be on the field.

We could be having a moment of controversy here. Gonzalo Jara could be in trouble for elbowing Timo Werner.

The referee doesn't see it, but we go to the Video Assistant Referee.

Things are getting a bit feisty with some pushing and shoving going on.

In the end, Germany's Joshua Kimmich gets a yellow-card for shoving his Bayern Munich team-mate Arturo Vidal. Could make for a lively occasion when they next meet up in pre-season training.

The Germany free-kick by the way came to nothing, despite a fine delivery into the box by Jonas Hector, but Chile bundled the ball clear.

Chile 0-1 Germany

Free-kick to Germany in a dangerous position.

CLOSE!

Chile 0-1 Germany

Germany captain Julian Draxler leads by example as he storms through the Chile defence. He gets off a shot at goal from inside the penalty area, and only an excellent sliding challenge from Gonzalo Jara diverts the ball for a corner, which comes to nothing.

SUBSTITUTION

Chile 0-1 Germany

Leonardo Valencia comes on for Chile only a few minutes into the second half. Marcelo Diaz, who will be haunted with his error that gifted Germany a goal, is the man withdrawn.

On the pitch, Chile's Alexis Sanchez tries to create something and goes on a purposeful run, but the move comes to nothing as his cross, aiming for the back post, drifts out of play.

Chile 0-1 Germany

A bit of panic for Chile as the ball bounces off Leon Goretzka, who chases after it, but luckily for the South Americans, keeper Claudio Bravo is well positioned to dart out of his area to make sure it goes out of play.

It's a German jamboree at the top of the Golden Boot charts for the tournament.

Lars Stindl's goal moves him up to three, level with team-mates Timo Werner and Leon Goretzka.

I wonder if they'll have a little half-time wager on who will come out on top?

History repeating itself?
