Confederations Cup: Germany 1-1 Chile Player Ratings

Germany

(22) Marc-André ter Stegen7.5 Had a very good save late in the first half, and had to deal with some dangerous crosses in the second. Distributed the ball well with his feet. Couldn’t do much about Chile’s goal.

(4) Matthias Ginter6.5 Had plenty of trouble dealing with Sanchez in the first half. Did better in the second, and even joined the attack every once in awhile. Did a great job in the buildup for the German goal.

(2) Shkodran Mustafi6.0 Had an absolutely nightmarish start, as he gave away the ball which led to Sanchez’s goal. A few minutes later, he gave it away again in a dangerous spot. Improved a lot in the second half, both distributing the ball and defending against Chile’s pacy attackers.

(17) Niklas Süle7.5 The most solid of Germany’s back three. Was constantly in control of the game, and distributed the ball well. Had one crucial interception in the second half.

(18) Joshua Kimmich7.5 Yet another great performance for the young Bayern star. His battle on the wing with Beausejour was a joy to watch, and Kimmich won his fair share of the duels. His deliveries weren’t as great as usual, but defensively, he was rock solid.

(14) Emre Can7.5 His run leading up to the equalizer, and the pass he picked, were a work of beauty. He battled hard for 90 minutes, and took plenty of initiative going forward.

(21) Sebastian Rudy7.0 Did very well to provide coverage for Germany’s young back three. The likes of Vidal and Aránguiz gave plenty of work to do and he did it well. Lucky not to be given a yellow just before the hour mark, but he was carded shortly after.

(3) Jonas Hector7.5 After a somewhat underwhelming performance against Australia, the Köln captain took a lot more responsibility today and it paid off. He was solid defensively and ventured plenty in attack, providing a wonderful assist for Stindl.

(8) Leon Goretzka5.0 Germany’s best player against Australia had the least impact today. He struggled to find any space in the first half, and even though he did find some in the second, he wasn’t able to do much with it. Looked very tired by the end of the game.

(7) Julian Draxler6.0 He tried a lot of things in attack, but Isla wasn’t really having any of it. He did provide a threatening outlet for the German offense, but the end product just wasn’t there today.

(13) Lars Stindl8.0 Surprised many by being the only striker in Low’s side today. Playing as a false 9, he found spaces every now and then and made the most out of them, scoring the equalizer just before half time. Couldn’t score in the second half, but his hard work continued both in attack and defense. He’s now the competition’s top scorer with two goals.

Chile

(23) Johnny Herrera7.0 Didn’t have to make any outstanding saves, but provided enough security in the box. One might question if he could have come out sooner to intercept Hector’s cross to Stindl, but it’d be harsh to give him too much stick for that.

(4) Mauricio Isla7.5 Was a constant threat in attack, but may have been able to do better with the final ball in a couple of occasions. Defensively, kept Draxler under control, but wasn’t able to prevent Hector’s cross for Germany’s equalizer.

(17) Gary Medel7.0 Allowed Can too much space and time to find Hector for the goal. Other than that, he was solid as per usual, and did well to distribute the ball from the back. Suffered an injury and was taken off with 20 minutes to go.

(18) Gonzalo Jara7.5 Wasn’t able to prevent the ball from finding Stindl’s foot as Germany equalized. Was in control of the game otherwise, and did well to take the role of the defensive leader after Medel’s injury.

(15) Jean Beausejour7.0 Battled with Kimmich for 90 minutes straight, with mixed results. Wasn’t able to give the German too much trouble in attack, but he also limited his attempts at going forward. Carded in the 70th minute for illegally stopping a run from Kimmich.

(20) Charles Aránguiz6.5 He was supposed to be one of the more attacking midfielders for Chile, but he didn’t offer much going forward. His passing was good, like it usually is, but he was lacking that punch that he usually has in his game. Subbed off late on.

(21) Marcelo Díaz8.0 The one time Can found a lot of space in that center of the park, Germany scored. Díaz was, for the vast majority of the game, taking care of that space and preventing the Germans from creating anything. A workhorse in front of the defense, he limited the impact of some of Germany’s most creative players.

(10) Pablo Hernández7.0 Looked at home in that box-to-box position, helping out both in defense and attack. Didn’t really provide anything outstanding at either end though.

(8) Arturo Vidal8.0 (Man of the Match) Embraced his more advanced role, as he did brilliantly to assist Sanchez six minutes into the game. Fought hard throughout the game, bossing the midfield for large stretches of the game.

(11) Eduardo Vargas7.0 His one big chance came in the first half, as he shook the bar with a shot from just outside the box. Didn’t have much of an impact in the second half, as the likes of Süle and Hector settled into the game. Subbed off in the 82nd minute.

(7) Alexis Sánchez8.0 He was Chile’s most dangerous player from the very beginning. Took his goal well in the 6th minute, and had another shot saved just before the halftime whistle. His impact lessened in the second half, but his pace and dribbling ability were threats until the final whistle.

Subs:

(13) Paulo Díaz6.5 Came off the bench with 20 minutes to go and Chile didn’t really feel Medel’s absence at all. It’ll be interesting to see if he can get a start against Cameroon.

(16) Martín Rodríguez and (5) Francisco Silva: Not enough playing time/impact for a rating.
