Germany got off to a miserable start, with Sanchez latching onto a mistake from Shkodran Mustafi to fire Chile ahead on six minutes, becoming his country's all-time top goalscorer in the process. The opposition have an incredible team, even though they have very young players, and we were able to compete with them toe-to-toe.

Sanchez became Chile's all-time record scorer early on, passing Marcelo Salas with his 38th worldwide goal after a mistake from Arsenal team-mate Shkodran Mustafi. "Sometimes we are better than our rivals and win, sometimes we lose".

Germany play Cameroon on Sunday in Sochi while Chile face the Socceroos in Moscow. "In some situations we showed we can play good football, but we lost our grip on the opponent in the last 20, 25 minutes", said Goretzka.

La Roja almost doubled their lead in the 20th minute through Eduardo Vargas, but the striker's effort from the edge of the box rattled the crossbar with Ter Stegen well beaten.

La Roja, meanwhile, are made up of the tournament's oldest players with an average age of just over 29, including the likes of Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez, Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo and Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal.

"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.

Chile coach Juan Antonio Pizzi agreed that both teams played well in what was a very technical game.

Veterans get free dental care in Moline
In San Antonio, Aspen Dental clinics were booked and for many veterans, it was their first dental checkup in years. In Dubuque, local vets were getting work done, everything from extractions to fillings without having to pay.


"The result reflects the high level on the pitch".

There was still work to do but Sanchez played a smart one-two with Vidal before galloping into the area and firing a left-footed shot beyond goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

Despite the early scare, Germany regained their composure and pushed forward.

In the other Group B match to take place today, Australia and Cameroon took a share of the spoils as their match also finished 1-1.

"This will probably be the match with the most legwork and the most taxing match. They are so flexible that, from time to time, you can not tell which player is playing which position", said Loew ahead of the encounter in Kazan, Russia.

Germany, with only three players from its 2014 World Cup-winning team, played catch-up most of time against the more experienced Chileans, but earned the draw after Lars Stindl scored from close range in a counterattack just before halftime.

Chances were few and far between for Australia and they must now be kicking themselves for not ensuring that they have more of a chance of progressing form the group by beating the weakest side.
