Cameroon vs Chile 18 June 2017: Confederation Cup Preview and Predictions

It was Vidal who led the complaints after Vargas' first-time finish from the Bayern Munich midfielder's pass at the end of the first half was ruled out for offside after a referral. The celebrations were soon squashed, however, when the VAR deemed Vargas to be offside.

"It's the first time we have played with this new technology and it's true while out on the pitch you are concentrating so that when it happens against you, it's hard to comprehend".

Sanchez should have broken the record, but saw his shot blocked after rounding Ondoa, only for Vargas to poke in the rebound.

"Of course if they go overboard with these types of situations, it could turn into a circus".

"We're very careful with the health of our players, and because of that we always act with the responsibility required by our position".

Stanley Cup champion Penguins greet raving fans
Having experienced the unrivaled feeling in the sport of winning the Stanley Cup , the Penguins certainly want to feel it again. If you were born in one of the nearby communities, from Elizabeth to Beaver Falls to Zelienople to Eighty Four, you are one.

But Eduardo Vargas and the reigning back-to-back Copa America champs battled back to score twice in the final 10 minutes to secure three points.

South American champion Chile may have fumed at the first video review, but its players also had themselves to blame in a first half packed with missed chances.

Chile take on Cameroon at 7pm on Sunday, June 18.

La Roja squandered another golden chance in the 40th minute when Vargas was played through on goal, however the striker blazed horribly over the crossbar.

That goal came after Cameroon had their own goal disallowed in the 17th minute when Michael Ngadeu headed home from a free kick, but Slovakian referee Damir Skomina adjudged Vincent Aboubakar to have fouled Arturo Vidal off the ball. "But in the end we accept it was a fair decision and this system is going to be useful", he added.
