Confederations Cup: African Champions, Cameroon Suffer Defeat In The Hands Of Chile

Goals from Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas handed Chile a late 2-0 win over Cameroon in the Confederations Cup game played in Moscow on Sunday.

The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) was on hand to influence referee Damir Skomina’s decision to controversially rule out Vargas’ first half goal for Chile as an offside goal.

However, in the second half, Chile took the lead after Bayern Munich midfielder, Vidal made the best of substitute, Alexis Sanchez’s cross by heading in a late goal beyond Cameron’s goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa in the 81st minute.

In the dying minutes of the game Vargas once again waited for another VAR referral to determine if his 91st minute goal came from an offside position, but this time around the decision was given in his favour as he was awarded the goal ti make it 2-0 on the Night.

Chile face Germany on Thursday in their second Group stage game, while Cameroon would be battling it out with Australia.
