Germany reach semis as referee needs VAR double-take

Chile is to play European champion Portugal in the first semi final on Wednesday while Germany takes on Mexico the next day.

Mexico beat hosts Russian Federation 2-1 in Kazan to take them through to the semi-finals, while Portugal topped Group A and joined the Mexicans after beating last-place New Zealand in St. Petersburg.

But it took furious protests from the Cameroon players, including Siani's sarcastically applauding Roldan, for the referee to check the monitor again and discover he had sent off the wrong player.

Video review has been used to show a red card to Cameroon defender Ernest Mabouka at the Confederations Cup on Sunday.

After Germany's Kerem Demirbay opened the scoring, Werner struck either side of Vincent Aboubakar's consolation effort on 78 minutes.

The victory in Sochi meant Germany finished top of Group B ahead of runners-up Chile, who drew 1-1 with Australia in Moscow.

A superb back-heel from captain Julian Draxler steered the ball into the path of the former Turkey junior global and he rifled a shot into the roof of the net from the edge of the box.

Joshua Kimmich's right-wing cross bounced before it reached the RB Leipzig striker, but Werner dived to divert a header neatly beyond Cameroon goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa.

Roared on by thousands of traveling fans, Chile held on and hit back in the 67th when Eduardo Vargas flicked the ball on for substitute Martin Rodriguez to hit it past goalkeeper Maty Ryan.

Cameroon manager Hugo Broos was left confused by the latest incident involving the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) in his side's 3-1 Confederations Cup defeat against Germany on Sunday, and said the referee didn't give an explanation afterward.

Any chance of an unlikely comeback from Cameroon was ended three minutes later when Werner restored Germany's two-goal lead with his second of the match.

In the 36th minute, Australia sprang to life, with Massimo Luongo forcing Claudio Bravo into an excellent close-range save after a brilliant chipped setup by James Troisi.

What looked like a comeback fight was quickly checked by a third goal from the German Machines to ensure that African Champions Cameroon crashed out of the FIFA Confederations Cup holding in Russian Federation.

A risky pass from Bravo was intercepted inside the Chile half, allowing Robbie Kruse to steer the ball across the face of the box to an unmarked Troisi who clipped over the advancing keeper.

Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi insisted they hadn't underestimated Australia, who are heading home after their bid to edge the Copa America holders to second place fizzled out.
