FIFA Confederations Cup 2017 Final: Germany 1-0 Chile

World Cup 2014 winners Germany win the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Russia

Germany’s Lars Stindl scored the winning goal of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in the 20th minute – the only goal scored in the game – as the Germany National Team defeated Chile 1-0 to become the Confederations Cup Russia champions in the final match held at Saint Petersburg Stadium in Russia. Germany goalkeeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegan gets credit for a clean sheet in the exciting final game of the tournament.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen was key to Germany winning the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russia. German manager Joachim Low’s side won the final 1-0 thanks to the single first-half goal from Lars Stindl and the perfect goalkeeping of ter Stegan as the titan Germany team saw off a spirited Chile that dominated large parts of the game but could not score against Barcelona superstar goalie Ter Stegen, who picked up a clean sheet making crucial saves.

Arturo Vidal went close for Chile in the first half before being denied by the Barca goalkeeper. Eduardo Vargas had a great chance for a late equalizer with 15 minutes to go, but could not beat the Ter Stegen. Chile pressed hard for an equalizer as Ter Stegen again denied Vidal from close range before pulling off a smart stop from an Alexis Sanchez free kick with only minutes remaining, as Germany held out for the victory.

All about World Cup 2018 events, tickets, schedule, stadiums

The 2018 World Cup Russia draw will be staged in the State Kremlin Palace, a building intended to house meetings of the Soviet Union's Communist Party that is now used as a concert hall. Fifa has confirmed the draw for the 2018 World Cup is set to take place in the Kremlin on Friday, December 1.A Unesco World Heritage site, the Kremlin is a fortified complex in the heart of Moscow that contains several cathedrals and palaces, including the official residence of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

A Fifa spokesperson confirmed the location of the World Cup 2018 draw.

"Fifa and the local organizing committee can confirm that the final draw for the 2018 Fifa World Cup will take place on December 1 in the concert hall of the State Kremlin Palace, in Moscow,” said a FIFA spokesperson. "This prestigious entertainment venue with a capacity of 6,000 spectators has hosted many international and locally renowned artists in the past, as well as traditional ballets and operas."

Fifa's confirmation followed an earlier report from Vitaly Mutko, the president of the Russian Football Union. Mutko is a former president of Russia's richest football team, Zenit Saint Petersburg.

"The final draw for the World Cup has been scheduled for December 1, and we have offered the Kremlin as the venue for this event," said Mutko. "This proposal suited Fifa and we are already in preparations for the draw."

This summer's World Cup 2018 Russia dress rehearsal, the Confederations Cup is a milestone for eastern Europe's first World Cup. The Confederations Cup which took place between June 17 and July 2, featured Russia, 2014 World Cup winners Germany and the six reigning champions of world football's Confederations: Australia, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal and the winners of the on-going Africa Cup of Nations.

Russia beat bids from Belgium/Netherlands, England, and Portugal/Spain to host the 2018 World Cup at a vote in December 2010.

Russia has already taken a massive step forward by announcing that visa requirements, which currently pretty much apply to anyone, not from a former Soviet republic, will be scrapped for the duration of the tournament. Russia has limited its World Cup venues to the western side of the country, with Siberia and the Pacific coast missing out entirely. Divided into four clusters, the games will be centered around Moscow, St Petersburg, the Volga River, and the Black Sea resort of Sochi, with matches also due to take place in the Urals city of Yekaterinburg.

Germany to Bid for Euro 2024 Tournament

France will host the Euro 2016 tournament while Euro 2020 will be hosted by cities across the continent to lower the financial burden.

Germany has bid for one of the packages to host matches for Euro 2020, putting Munich forward as a candidate city. UEFA will spread the tournament across the continent to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the European championship.

"Eighteen years after the unique 2006 World Cup the time is right for another summer fairytale in Germany," said DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach following a federation meeting in Nuremberg.

"The last time the DFB hosted the Euro was 1988. We think we have good chances because as organisers of past tournaments we always left an excellent impression on FIFA and UEFA," he said.

Euro 2012 - Germany Ranks Third in FIFA - Leads Group A

Miroslav Klose, German National Team

Mario Gomez is Bayern's leading scorer with 30 goals in 38 games this season. Klose has one goal for Bayern this season. 

"Mario used his chance very well. There is no reason to put him doubt in the club," said Klose. "But that's how it is for me in the national team."

Klose is getting closer to Gerd Mueller's top scoring record for Germany, With 59 goals in 106 games for Germany, Klose is nine goals short of Mueller's record.

He may cut the gap again when Germany plays Kazakhstan tomorrow in Germany's qualifying match for the 2012 European Championship in Poland and Ukraine.

"The record is my big target. Maybe it will come at the European Championship," Klose said.

Germany has hopes of winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil - as they prepare for their upcoming matches.

They are is ranked third in the FIFA rankings behind Spain and the Netherlands and ahead of Argentina, Brazil and England as of March 2011. 

And Germany leads Group A with four wins from four games and anything but a comfortable victory in Kaiserslautern would be a major surprise. Kazakhstan hasn't scored a goal or earned a point in qualifying so far.

Mario Gomez is optomistic about victory and accepts his fate with Germany.

"With all due respect for Kazakhstan, winning this game shouldn't be a problem for us," Gomez said.

"He just happens to have an excellent record in the national team," Gomez said. "As long as he keeps scoring so many goals, I can understand that the coach has no reason to change anything. But I know that I will score many more goals for Germany, I just don't know when," Gomez said.

On Friday, Loew confirmed that Klose will be on the Germany team - probably starting.

"Although he is not playing much for Bayern, he keeps scoring for the national team, as he did against Italy, Loew said.

Klose will return to Kaiserslautern, where he was playing club football when his international career began 10 years ago.

"It's a sellout. I probably sold half the tickets," Klose joked. "It will be a good atmosphere."

At 32, Klose is the veteran in Loew's young team that reached the semifinals of the World Cup in South Africa last year before losing to Spain 1-0.

Loew has dropped six of the 2010 World Cup players from his squad for the Kazakhstan match and for the friendly against Australia on Tuesday.

Germany without goalkeeper Rene Adler due to injury.

Midfielder Sven Bender, who plays for Bundesliga leader Borussia Dortmund, is the only newcomer to the group.

"My players are very concentrated on this match, although Kazakhstan is not on the same level as Italy," Loew said. "We want to win the game, but I also told my players that I'd like to see the same kind of dynamic football we played at the World Cup."
