Chile says it will consider joint bid for 2026 World Cup

In the other Group B match to take place today, Australia and Cameroon took a share of the spoils as their match also finished 1-1.

Sanchez netted his 38th goal for Chile after a smart pass by Arturo Vidal in the sixth minute. We have got a young team, but we have prepared intensively for the match and want to do well, " Stindl said in an interview with the German Football Association website, www.DFB.de.

Low will know, however, that Chile pose an altogether different prospect to Australia, and possess a formidable mix of tenacity and creativity throughout the team. They'll be in a race to score more than the other during their Sunday games in bids to avoid Portugal in the semifinals.

"It was a very intense match, a match that was marked by strategical play and it was very demanding in that sense, " Low said.

At the end of it all it was only a draw for Chile but a very encouraging result for the South Americans against a talented Germany team.

Chile, trying to win its first major worldwide tournament after winning consecutive Copa Americas, was in control for most of the match in front of 38,222 fans at Kazan Arena, holding on to possession and creating chances with Sanchez and Eduardo Vargas up front.

"We drew against a very good side that is physically very prepared", he added.

He sent his pass straight to Sanchez who played a one-two with Vidal and toe-poked the ball in off the post. "We have to be courageous and attack on the break with more players".

Chile and Germany are level on four points after two matches in Group B, three points clear of Cameroon and Australia.

Vargas, who has scored 34 goals for Chile, nearly added to the lead in the first half with a booming right-foot shot that struck the crossbar.

Vidal and Bayer Leverkusen s Charles Aranguiz shaded the battle with Germany s defensive midfielder Sebastian Rudy, who will also join Bayern next season, and Liverpool s Can. "We all recognize that we are part of a group of national teams that have great players and have been competing very well".

Forward Lars Stindl believes Germany's young squad will be able to overcome Copa America champions Chile when they meet on Thursday.

Indeed, much had been made before the game of this being a match-up between youth and experience.

The Germans were in control from the start and outsprinted their opponents, with Lars Stindl converting a perfectly timed cutback from Julian Brandt to put them ahead in the fifth minute.
