El campeón del Mundo logró el título gracias al gol obtenido a los veinte minutos por Lars Stindl, centrocampista del Borussia Mönchengladbach

La selección de Alemania se impuso en la final disputada en San Petersburgo a Chile (1-0) y conquistó la Copa Confederaciones de Rusia 2017, la primera que logra en su historia el combinado germano.

El campeón del Mundo logró el título gracias al gol obtenido a los veinte minutos por Lars Stindl, centrocampista del Borussia Mönchengladbach.

El triunfo de Alemania termina con el dominio de Brasil, campeón en las últimas tres ediciones y la selección con más éxitos en esta competición, cuatro.

El compromiso inició con una selección chilena dominante que generó hasta tres ocasiones de gol en los primeros 15 minutos,

En el complemento, el bicampeón americano –a puro pulmón- con sus armas incomodó a Alemania, que aunque contó con ocasiones para ampliar el resultado sufrió el partido hasta los minutos finales.

Llegadas de Alexis, Vidal y Eduardo Vargas fueron las constantes de Chile en la segunda mitad, pero sin tino y con un Ter-Stegen correcto, Alemania conquistó su primera Copa Confederaciones y la cuarta para el continente.

World champions Germany have won the FIFA 2017 Confederations Cup, a first half Lars Stindl goal enough to hand them a 1-0 victory over Chile in the final at St. Petersburg Stadium.

Stindl scored his third goal of the tournament on 20 minutes when Timo Werner squared for him to slot into an open net with goalkeeper Claudio Bravo already committed.

In the end, that was the difference between the Germans and a spirited Chile side, who found huge support among the Russian fans.

For the final match, the ‘Tournament of Champions’ returned to where it began, St. Petersburg Stadium, which had already provided the stage for Russia’s 2-0 opening day victory over New Zealand on June 17.

Back then the entire ground were cheering for Russia’s red, but for the final, the support in the crowd was certainly for the red of Chile, ‘La Roja’ having become a cult favorite among locals for their garish outfits and vocal support.

During the closing ceremony before the game, gratitude was expressed towards each national team and the Confed Cup volunteers in the form of banners displaying a ‘Thank You’ message in the six different languages of the eight participating nations.

Previous tournament winners were honored and there was even authentic music from the participating countries, including a Mexican mariachi band.

Charles Aranguiz went close for Chile but he was denied by Antonio Ruediger with a perfectly timed tackle in the area. Arturo Vidal then banged the rebound against Marc-Andre Ter Stegen in the Germany goal.

It turned out to be a costly mistake when moments later Timo Werner took advantage of indecision in the Chile defense to steal the ball and draw Claudio Bravo off his line. With the Chile keeper fully committed, Werner was able to square to Stindl to calmly place the ball into the open net with 20 minutes played.
