Ruthless Germany Secure Confed Cup Final Berth

FIFA Confederations Cup Report: Germany v Mexico 29 June 2017

FIFA Confederations Cup 

Result: Germany 4-1 Mexico 

Date: 29 June 2017

Venue: Fisht Olympic Stadium

World champions, Germany were clinical in front of goal as they defeated Mexico 4-1 to secure their spot in the FIFA Confederations Cup final.

The World Champions opened the scoring after just five minutes when Benjamin Henrichs picked out Leon Goretzka, who slotted the ball into the bottom corner from 18-yards out.

Two minutes later, Goretzka got his and Germany's second goal as he latched onto a pass from Timo Werner before firing past a helpless Ochoa.

Mexico, on the other hand, were finding it tough to carve clear-cut chances, even though they shaded the possession statistics.

Giovani Dos Santos could have handed Mexico the lead after 33 minutes but Marc-Andre Ter Stegen produced a good save to deny the forward.

Mexico ended the first half the stronger of the two sides, but they were unable to reduce the two-goal deficit before the break.

After a quiet start to the half, Germany grabbed a third goal in the 59th minute as Julian Draxler played in Jonas Hector, who teed up Timo Werner for the simple tap-in.

Ter Stegen came to Germany's rescue in the 70th minute as he produced a good save to keep out Miguel Layun's powerful strike.

Five minutes later, Mexico were denied by the woodwork as Raul Jimenez's towering header chashed onto the crossbar with Ter Stegen well beaten.

The Mexicans managed to pull a goal back in the 89th minute courtesy of a superb strike from Marco Fabian, however Germany hit back straight away as Emre Can played in Amin Younes, who calmly slotted into the far corner to make it 4-1 to the World champions.

Mexico, meanwhile, will face European champions Portugal in the third and fourth play-off tie.

The German machine is great going forward but they very weak at the back and I believe Chile can take advantage of that.
