Chile was able to reach the Confederations Cup final by beating Portugal in penalties. Thanks to Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo who became heroic to the game for saving penalty kicks. Bravo pulled off impressive stunts to save three penalties from Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Moutinho and Nani, sending Chile to its third straight international final after winning consecutive Copa America titles. Both teams headed into the battle with verve as Chile attempt to steal the spotlight. Portugal responded to this through Cristiano Ronaldo and place the ball into position to Andre Silva at the back post but Bravo reacted promptly at the sight of threat and denied Silva. The only other opportunity for Portugal was at the hands of Charles Aranguiz, but no luck for coach Santos’ team. At the end, it was Chile who have had displayed a stronger intent in the FIFA Confederations Cup.
Germany came from a comfortable 4-1 win against Mexico at Fisht Olympic Stadium, Sochi, Russia for them to reached first Confederations Cup final. It was midfielder Leon Goretzka who led the team with his two quick goals in the 6th and 8th minute of the match over Mexico. It should be 3-0 in the first half when Timo Werner had an open look to the goal but the goalkeeper of Mexico Guillermo Ochoa was able to avoid and saved it. In the second half, Werner got his chance and scored a goal in the 59th minute to make the lead to 3-0 in front of 37,923 fans. On the other end, Mexico’s Marco Fabian cut their deficit to 3-1 after his late strike to give some pride for his own team, but the German is too much for their opponent.
