Football : With its B-team, l'Germany wins the fifa Confederations Cup
Coming with its B-team, went home with the trophy: Germany, no holder usual, picked up his first fifa Confederations Cup by beating Chile (1-0) in the final of the edition 2017, Sunday in St. Petersburg.
The world champions succeed in the charts in Brazil triple taking the title, and now hope to break the curse that has seen the winners of the nine editions all fail to win the World in the aftermath.
However, it is precisely to make the doubled 2014/2018 that Joachim Löw had chosen to avoid its licensees compete in three tournaments in three years. He had suddenly summoned that three world champions (Mustafi, Ginter and Draxler) within the group, the youngest of the tray Russian, only 24 years and 4 months in average.
He was able to do a review of membership, which has enabled confirmations (Ter Stegen, Rüdiger Kimmich, Hector), revelations (Rudy, Goretzka, Stindl, Werner) and promises (Can, Henrichs, Brandt), by stacking twelve goals in five matches.
As a team twice won the title confirms the current power of Germany, also winner of Friday’s Euro Hopes, but is without doubt also a very poor advertisement for the Confederations Cup on the line, and that may be affected by “analysis,” of all the competitions launched by the president of Fifa, Gianni Infantino.
The Chileans have lost the match on a huge mistake : Diaz was nicking the ball in front of its surface by Werner who only had to serve Stindl, pushing the ball into the empty cage to open the scoring (20th). Stindl joined his teammates Werner and Goretzka in the top of the ranking of the goalscorers (3 outputs each).

there were voltage on the field, at the point of producing an altercation between the two team mates of Bayern Munich, Kimmich and Vidal, scooping each yellow card (59th).
video support to the arbitration (VAR), for which officiated the French Clément Turpin, has not really dispelled that tension. It was first used after an elbow of Jara in the face of Werner. The referee went to him-even looking at the images at the edge of the field and warned the Chilean, who came out well (66th).
The Chileans, their coach Juan Antonio Pizzi in the first head, were furious that the referee did not activate the VAR on a dispute in the surface. The referee was ultimately in vain for la Roja, and after long seconds of confusion (77th).
