Germany's rising stars relishing chance to shine in Russian Federation

Two best teams in the tournament - Germany and Chile will clash against each other today in the Group B match of the FIFA Confederation Cup 2017.

Hugo Broos has assembled a fresh faced squad that surprised many when they triumphed in the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year.

"I'm not sure Chile are unfair in the way they play", he said.

Postecoglou's response to Broos suggested he knew which side of the debate he fell on.

Australia have lost four matches in a row in the Confederations Cup, with their last win coming in the 2001 edition, in a third place playoff against Brazil. "The focus for the game is to make sure we impose ourselves on the game and hopefully get Cameroon worrying more about us".

The two countries, meeting for the first time, traded free kicks in the opening 20 minutes but it took until the 37th minute for either to create an opening.

Chile's matchwinning goalscorer Arturo Vidal will face one of his Bayern Munich team-mates, Joshua Kimmich, when his side play Germany.

"It's really nice to be around the group again.my last call up was in November for the game against Thailand", Gersbach said after his call up at the weekend.

Regardless of their inexperience - the entire Germany squad had just 149 caps between them - Marcelo Diaz said facing the world champions requires a certain mind set. The role of midfielder Aaron Mooy is also key as he will need to keep things tight ahead of his defensive unit, while Tomi Juric will need to produce a performance similar to that on Monday to ensure an Aussie win. "They're one of the most flexible teams in the world".

There were a couple of wobbly moments at the back but all in all it was a very good start to the tournament from Joachim Löw's men.

Christian Bassogog and Vincent Aboubakar are expected to lead the line in attack once again, whereas the Africans will only be without Ambroise Oynogo who picked up an injury just before the trip to Russian Federation.

In Thursday's other Group B game, Australia play Cameroon in St Petersburg with both teams knowing they can ill afford another Confed Cup defeat.

Andre Anguissa opened the scoring in first-half stoppage-time as he raced onto a long ball from defender Michael Ngadeu-Ngadjui which exposed Australia's high back-line before poking the ball over the head of onrushing goalkeeper Mathew Ryan.
