A youthful Germany team will look to solidify their country's place as the world's dominant football nation, while Chile players believe that a win on Sunday puts their country atop the world as the two face off in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup final, which will live stream from Russian Federation to crown the champion of this year's elite, pre-world Cup competition.
Those doctors had much to celebrate as Chile is on its way to it's third straight global final after winning the Copa América for the last two years in a row.
Lars Stindl, who scored the winning goal here, and Timo Werner, who made it, have come into the national team picture and don't appear to have any intention of letting their places slip.
"Myself and the team are all extremely proud of the title".
"Chile have excellent players who can score from the spot and Claudio Bravo seems to be a real penalty-killer in that sense, but I am not afraid of penalties at all", said Loew. "I don't think there are limits to how a team can grow".
"It's true we played an extra 30 minutes in the semi-final, but at this level, issues of motivation can cover any physical shortfall or being exhausted", said coach Juan Antonio Pizzi. "We have to suck it up and move on".
Chile started on the attack and had a good chance after four minutes. Later, Vidal and Angelo Sagal fired over the bar in the closing stages.
Among goalkeepers Federation Internationale de Football Association said the captain of Chile Claudio Bravo, the goalkeeper, "Manchester city" in the confederations Cup played five matches and conceded three goals.
Silva then struck his first worldwide goal after a handball inside the box on 104 minutes, while both sides finished with 10 men as Nelson Semedo was dismissed for Portugal before Raul Jimenez saw red for Mexico.
Paris Saint-Germain's star again threatened early in the second half - after gliding through into the box, his right-footed shot was deflected just wide by the leg of Gonzalo Jara.
Kimmich responded by confirming the on-field confrontation will not be an issue when the pair links up for Bayern Munich's pre-season.
Another effort from Vargas was well held by Ter Stegen as Chile looked the more likely to break the deadlock.
Ter Stegen almost gave away an opening goal when he gave up a big rebound off a shot by Charles Aranguiz.
"The players are nervous on the pitch and it's hard to control that sort of situation".
Chile kept trying but Sanchez had a shot blocked and saw man-of-the-match ter Stegen turn away his free-kick in stoppage time.
The likes of Golden Boot victor Werner, Golden Ball victor Julian Draxler and fullbacks Jonas Hector and Joshuah Kimmich lifted themselves from potential World Cup 2018 squad players to probable starters next summer.
