Loew: Experience of facing Chile is priceless for Germany

Chile Coach, Juan Antonio Pizzi, said Alexis Sanchez is fit to play against Germany on Thursday in their second Confederations Cup Group B match.

Cameroon will seek to impose themselves early on in today's match against Australia at the Confederations Cup to avoid a repeat of the tepid start to their opening game of the tournament which they lost to Chile, said coach Hugo Broos. Thursday's clash in Kazan will give Joachim Low's experimental squad another chance to develop and impress, with the average age now standing at 24 years and four months.

Chile came to the Confederations Cup with its top players to try to finally break through with a title outside South America.

Borussia Monchengladbach striker Stindl made his senior global debut for Die Mannschaft against Denmark in a friendly earlier this month.

There were a couple of wobbly moments at the back but all in all it was a very good start to the tournament from Joachim Löw's men.

He told www.DFB.de: "It (age) is a fact, but it won't play a big role".

Kruse said he was confident of securing victory.

Every time you play against a team with a different style it brings more wealth to our group so I am happy to see we played well against Chile and I hope this will be confirmed in the next two matches.

A goal on Thursday against the Indomitable Lions will make Tim Cahill the second oldest scorer in the competition's history (37 years 198 days), behind Lothar Matthaus (38 goals 129 days).

"I thought we matched them for periods of the game and the character and resilience they showed is unquestionable".

Along with Germany and Chile, Pool B includes Australia and Cameroon.
