Sanchez breaks Chile scoring record in Germany draw

"I'm very happy to be Chile's top scorer. I will just try to help the team in the coming games".

As well as netting his 38th goal for his country, Sanchez was a constant threat for a La Roja side who really took the game to the world champions and on another night they would have come away with a victory.

Germany and Chile missed out on the chance to book their place in the semi-finals of the 2017 Confederations Cup on Thursday as they played out an entertaining 1-1 draw at the Kazan Arena in Russian Federation.

Suffering from an ankle sprain, Sanchez did not start the first game of the pre-World Cup tournament, playing only a few minutes in the win over Cameroon.

Both teams won their opening game with Germany defeating Australia 3-2 while Chile defeated Cameroon 2-0.

Argus Boosts Rating On Oracle Corporation (ORCL) To "Outperform"
Old Mutual Global Investors UK Ltd.'s holdings in Oracle Corporation were worth $1,377,000 at the end of the most recent quarter. The current share price indicates that stock is 7.04% away from its one year high and is moving 33.71% ahead of its 52-week low.

"It was a very tactical, intense game and it was very, very demanding in that sense", said Germany coach Joachim Loew, who has taken a young squad to the tournament. The key was to have a well structured defence.

It showed resilience from the young German team but was a barely-deserved equalizer that meant they went in at the break on level terms.

Germany is ranked (by FIFA), as the third strongest team on earth, while Chile are in fourth place overall.

Germany were more assertive in the second half than they were in the first.

Sanchez wrote his name into the history books with help from Arsenal team-mate Shkodran Mustafi, who blundered when his terrible pass out of defence was deflected by Arturo Vidal into the path of Sanchez.

Sanchez nearly hit back immediately when he cut in from the left and unleashed a low drive on goal, but Ter Stegen proved equal to it.

A give-and-go with Arturo Vidal left Alexis Sanchez alone with the ball in front of Germany goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen and the Arsenal striker delivered.

But Germany were able to level four minutes before half-time on a well-worked counter-attack.

Twenty minutes into the game Chile's striker Eduardo Vargas made a unsafe shot from behind a penalty line but the ball crashed into the upper poll with only an inch missing instead of burning the net.
