  6. '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."

  7. Mixed emotions

    Ayo Obit: If Germany's B team can win the Confederations Cup fairly easily, maybe we should just give them next year's World Cup.

    The Germany team celebrate

    Chile 0-1 Germany

    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.

    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.

  11. Post update

    Chile 0-1 Germany

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

  12. Post update

    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.


    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.

  14. Post update

    Chile 0-1 Germany

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

  15. 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.


    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.

  18. 'Three minutes wasted'

    Former England keeper David James weighs in...

    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???

  20. 'Not getting VAR'

    Chile 0-1 Germany

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