Cameroon 0-2 Chile: Late goals seal extraordinary match of disallowed goals

Chile believed they had broken the deadlock moments before the interval as Vidal's smart pass was finished expertly by Vargas only for the Video Assistant Referee to rule it as an offside.

There was no dispute about Vidal's goal as he rose above two defenders to power home the ball as Sanchez, who had been ruled out of the starting line-up through injury but came in early in the second half, provided the flawless assist.

In second half stoppage time Sanchez found himself clear through on goal, dancing past defenders and then the keeper only for his shot to be blocked. Vargas was on hand to convert the rebound, but the linesman flagged for offside.

Chileans from the first seconds pressed Cameroon to their goal - Vargas in the first minute shook the rod, and with a kick Fuensalida coped, Ondoa.

The national team of Cameroon for all its history was remembered for the time being with only one performance at the Cup of Confederations.

But his gamble paid off as the Arsenal attacker crossed for Arturo Vidal to head home.

Vargas was next to have a chance for the Chileans when Vidal played the striker through on goal but he put his shot well over the bar when he should have done so much better.

Benjamin Moukandjo went close to breaking the deadlock for Cameroon in the 66th minute but his curling free-kick sailed inches wide of the upright.

The Africa Cup of Nations holders did look a threat on the counter-attack and Vincent Aboubakar was denied by the legs of Johnny Herrera, who was in the Chile goal ahead of usual captain Claudio Bravo.

Still, the focus was on FIFA's men in front of the video screens - and Cameroon midfielder Sebastien Siani said players will just have to get used to it. We watched the last matches of the Chilean team and we were sure that it was really so, and I cannot disagree with Joachim Levy, who recently said that Chile is in the top three of the combined planets.One of the main, but not the only trump card of South Americans is their speed, but we will not give in.
