The Germans beat Mexico 4-1 in the second semi-final match of the tournament to reach their first ever Fifa’s Confederations Cup final, in a match that could best be described as a contrast to the first semi-final match that took place between Chile and Portugal.
Goretzka strikes twice for Germany in the opening eight minutes to give the world cup champions a comfortable lead, heaping pressure on the CONCACAF champions, but they managed to hold on to the 2-0 defeat till half time.
Werner made situations worse for the Mexican side in the second half , when he scored Germany’s third goal, increasing the lead and putting more pressure on the Mexican side.
Mexico were still able to possess the ball and put up attack, but it did not yield any result until the 89th minutes before Fabian converted a goal to give the Mexicans their only goal of the match.
But just on injury time Younes scored Germany’s fourth goal, rendering the effort of Fabian irrelevant and probably killikng any hope that was being gathered that any miracle could still happen.
The win means Germany will have an appointment with Chile in the final of the Confederations Cup, while Mexico will play Portugal in the third-place play-off.
Both Germany and Chile are reaching their first ever final in the tournament for the first time, and will be hoping to crown their efforts with success.
Thanks for joining us tonight, good night.
