Chile bag comfortable Confederations Cup victory over Cameroon

Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas scored late on to help Chile to a 2-0 win over Cameroon in a Confederations Cup clash in Moscow that saw the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) at the centre of controversy.

Chile looked to have found their breakthrough just before the stroke of half-time - Vidal again feeding Vargas in behind the defence for the forward to fire home - but the Video Assistant Referee system adjudged the Tigres man to be offsides despite appearing to be in a legal position.

Over a minute had passed since Vargas' exuberant celebrations when the on-field referee signalled the goal had been chalked off. Shortly before the end of the match shot scored Vargas - Sanchez after a solo run beat the goalkeeper and shot on the empty goal, but got in the way of the defender, the rebound from which the ball went to Vargas.

We are getting a pretty good price on Chile winning this game and as a result of that I think this is by far the best bet that is to be made.

Prime Minister To Hold Talks With NI's Five Main Parties
Mrs May met the five main Northern Ireland parties yesterday and warned time was running out to save the devolved institutions. Mrs O'Neill said she would discuss her concerns with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar the following day.

"It's true that maybe the situation had an impact on our performance in the second half".

"The only negative about today's incident with the VAR was that it is hard for the players focusing in the game to absorb, and even if it is the right decision it has an impact on their psyche".

"The only negative comment was that it's hard for the players' feelings during the game".

Vidal, despite being livid at the time and protesting vehemently to on-field official Damir Skomina, was more diplomatic afterwards, saying: "It's the first time our team has played with this new technology and when we were on the pitch we were very concerned".

"FIFA explained it all to us before the match but, even then, it was not easy to accept it was an offside goal".
