Sanchez got the early goal as Chile took a 1-0 lead after German defender Shkodran Mustafi made a defensive blunder.

Germany was late to get their momentum as Chile was dominating in the better part of opening periods.

Just before the half time, Stindl squared the scoreline after a tremendous work from Emre Can and Jonas Hector.

In the second half, both teams were looking very alert as they gave importance on their defensive part. As a result, there were very fewer activities in the both attacking zones. In the entire second half, there was only one shot on target.
