Mexico will meet Germany in Confederations Cup semifinals

The reigning world champions beat Cameroon 3-1 in the Confederations Cup as Kerem Demirbay's opener and a brace from Timo Werner secured top spot in Group B and set up a semi-final clash against Mexico on Thursday.

Both sides sat level on four points heading into the last group stage fixture, with Die Mannschaft taking on African champions Cameroon and the Chileans facing off against Australia.

Roldan initially booked, then sent off, the wrong player in Sebastien Siani, before utilising the video assistant referee to determine that it was in fact Mabouka who required a red card.

But three minutes into the second period, Germany hit the front as some wonderful build-up play was rewarded by a first global goal for Demirbay.

The Nations Cup holders failed to win a game in the eight-team competition, losing to Copa America champions, Chile in their opening match and drawing 1-1 with Asian Cup winners, Australia in the second.

Juric had a reasonable shout for a penalty when it was still goalless. "We've got some good young players coming through". Nearly immediately after the break, Juric had a chance to level, following good work from Kruse down the right.

"They were a small fish in their continent for a while and they made a decision to change that and we're trying to change that ourselves as well".

"It was a very high-level game with two teams playing very aggressively going forward, which was very attractive for the fans", said Pizzi.

Vincent Aboubakar halved the deficit but Werner soon slotted in his second of the game and victory means Germany coach Joachim Low has now won 100 of his 150 matches in charge, with his team unbeaten in their last 13 outings.

He made his Chile debut a decade ago, scoring his first global goal against Switzerland in a 2007 friendly, and Sanchez marked his 112th appearance with a record-breaking strike.

As a result with 4 points and goal difference 3: 1, the Chile team is the leader of its quartet, and for the playoffs it's enough just not to lose in Sunday's game. No other team in this tournament would want to face Cameroon one on one.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said senior police officials were at the sannidhanam as part of the investigation. The Travancore Devasom Board, which manages the affairs of the temple, said the mast has suffered serious damage.

Troisi dinked the ball over goalkeeper Claudio Bravo to give Australia the lead after Chile lost possession in midfield.

"But we recovered immediately and our goal was excellent, it was a model goal scored from a couple of passes". Chile produced a highly mobile, energised and effective performance against the Germans, and this performance will have the Australians dreading facing one the emerging worldwide sides.

On the whole it worked at Spartak Stadium and, while disappointed not to advance, Postecoglou was pleased with his players' progress.

Alexis Sanchez then managed to get clear but the ball was taken off his foot by Ryan Milligan's last-ditch tackle.

That was the way it stayed until midway through the second half when substitute Martin Rodriguez spared their blushes with the equaliser.

Despite Vettel's time penalty, Hamilton lost valuable time of his own - and possibly the race - changing a loose headrest. It was also a superb performance from Stroll, the son of a billionaire, who faced heavy criticism earlier in the season.
