Cameroon boss Broos proud despite Chile defeat

Eduardo Vargas' goal was ruled offside following review by VAR, and Chile was denied an opener despite a controlling first half in Moscow.

African champions Cameroon fell 2-0 to South America's Chile in their opening FIFA Confederations Cup match on Sunday.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez has missed the starting XI for Chile's first game of their Confederations Cup campaign after suffering an ankle injury in training. "If I understand it correctly, we are trialling the system right now and there are maybe doubts because we are used to other situations in football", said Pizzi.

Expect to see him conducting Chile's passage to glory in Russian Federation, and showing who the real Tsar is at the Confederations Cup.

Vargas doubled the score 10 minutes later in added time after Sanchez beat the offside trap but was unable to finish off the chance himself.

His impact was felt 23 minutes later when the winger provided the cross from the left flank for Vidal to head home. Vargas followed up the rebound only to see the linesman's flag shoot up.

Cameroon will play against Australia in their next Group B match in Saint Petersburg this Thursday, as they seek points to keep them in the eight-team tournament that serves as a test run ahead of the Fifa World Cup finals next year.

The Chileans had thought they'd taken the lead in first-half stoppage time when Eduardo Vargas slotted the ball past Fabrice Ondoa after a pass from Vidal. "He's a very important player and that's why we put him on".

The 27-year-old clipped the ball home, but over a minute after the ball had hit the net, the video assistant adjudged the Tigres forward to have been marginally offside.

Can Cameroon start with a win as they did when they last appeared in the Confederations Cup?

Cameroon captain Benjamin Moukandjo curled a free-kick narrowly off target in the 67th, while Chile had another chance when Mauricio Isla's header went narrowly wide at a corner. "If we don't have this, we won't win the game tomorrow", Broos said at a Saturday press conference.
