Chile beats Cameroon 2-0 as video reviews draw controversy

Confederation Cup: Cameroon opens campaign against Chile

Confederation Cup: Cameroon opens campaign against Chile

When is Chile vs Cameroon and where can I watch it?

The Copa America champions had to wait until the 81st minute though to find a breakthrough, which was provided by a flying header from Bayern Munich midfielder Vidal.

Chile enters the Confederations Cup among the favorites to win the tournament, and they will face Germany and Australia to round out Group B play after Sunday's clash with Cameroon.

Vargas had the ball in the net as the match moved into stoppage time at the end of the first half, deftly lifting it over the onrushing Cameron goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa after being expertly fed by a defence-splitting pass from Vidal.

When asked if Sanchez's focus is exclusively on the Confederations Cup campaign, Pizzi said in a press conference: "100 per cent, 100 per cent".

"All our players are really focused on what we are doing and of course what they want to do is try and win the tournament and of course win tomorrow's game".

La Roja squandered another golden chance in the 40th minute when Vargas was played through on goal, however the striker blazed horribly over the crossbar.

After the game's second review, the goal and three points for Chile were confirmed.

Vargas finally secured his goal in the 90th minute when he fired home after Sanchez rounded the keeper and saw his shot saved by a defender.

Cameroon could also have argued they should have had a referral in the first half when Vincent Aboubakar was harshly adjudged to have pulled back Vidal as Michael Ngadjui headed in a free-kick.

The African champions came closest when captain Benjamin Moukandjo hit narrowly wide with a shot from the edge of the penalty area midway through the second half.
