Sanchez plays su­per­sub in chile’s win in rus­sia

Metro Canada (Calgary) - - THE NEW FARM - The as­so­Ci­aTed Press

alexis sanchez came off the bench to set up both Chile’s goals in a 2-0 Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup win over Cameroon on sun­day — but the video as­sis­tant ref­er­ees were the real stars in Moscow.

Crowded in front of screens in a dark­ened room, they dis­al­lowed a goal for Chile’s nar­rowly off­side ed­uardo Var­gas just be­fore the break, then awarded Var­gas a goal in sim­i­lar cir­cum­stances late on.

With the video re­view sys­tem get­ting its first air­ing in a ma­jor FiFa tour­na­ment, it brought plenty of ten­sion, but also con­fu­sion and bit­ter­ness.

also sun­day, ti­tle con­tenders Por­tu­gal and Mex­ico fought out an en­ter­tain­ing 2-2 draw in Kazan, rus­sia.
