Confeds Cup: Cameroon driven by Foe memory

Confeds Cup: Cameroon driven by Foe memory

Chile were the better side from the kick-off today in Moscow as Cameroon quickly found themselves setting up camp in their own half. 65 goals. Look at that record (0.24 goals a game or a goal every four matches) and you'd nod your head wisely and say.

After Vidal put Chile ahead in the 80th, Vargas scored Chile's second - but only after another review.

At the highest level, against the toughest defenders in the world, Eduardo Vargas suddenly transforms when he dons the Chilean jersey. now if that wasn't something special, I don't know what is.

Despite the fact that the national team of Chile for all of its existence has achieved good results, winning the last Cup of America, allowed for the first time in history to break into the Cup of Confederations.

What is the Confederations Cup?

"Of course if they go overboard with these types of situations, it could turn into a circus".

Broos said: "It was used twice during the match and it showed it can be very important".

Chile left it late to edge out a dogged Cameroon in an opening Group B clash that saw striker Eduardo Vargas have goals both ruled out and given by the video assistant.

Chile also has matches against Germany in Kazan next Thursday, and Australia on June 25 in the Russian capital.

The first half was nearly controlled entire by the Chileans.

Ondoa had to palm away a Jose Fuenzalida shot two minutes later as Chile took firm control.

Cameroon had the ball in the back of the net when Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui rose to meet an in-swinging free kick but the offside flag was raised.

Still, the focus was on FIFA's men in front of the video screens - and Cameroon midfielder Sebastien Siani said players will just have to get used to it.
