FIFA Confed Cup: Germany Pip Chile To Win First Title
Germany have added another trophy to their cabinet following their lone goal win over Chile on Sunday night in the FIFA Confederation Cup final.
Before Sunday, the reigning world champions have never won the Confederation Cup but they kept their calm as they snatched a lone goal victory against the rampaging South American champions.
Lars Stindl scored the only goal as the world champions added to their impressive trophy haul, which includes the U21 European Championships won by their youth side on Friday.
An error from Chile midfielder Marcelo Diaz allowed Timo Werner to scamper beyond the defence, squaring the ball for Borussia Monchengladbach forward Stindl to tap into an empty net.
Before Sunday, Denmark and France were the only European teams to have won the prestigious Confed Cup.
Germany are also the third reigning world champions after Brazil and France to win the Confederation Cup.
