STINDL SCORES LONE GOAL FOR GERMANY IN VIC­TORY VS. CHILE

The Denver Post - - SPORTS -

Germany’s ex­per­i­men­tal young side over­came street-wise Chile to win a bruis­ing Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup fi­nal 1-0 on Sun­day, vin­di­cat­ing Joachim Loew’s de­ci­sion to leave most of his world cham­pi­ons at home.

The only goal in St. Peters­burg came in the 20th minute from the 28-year-old Lars Stindl, who tapped into an empty net af­ter a de­fen­sive blun­der. While the mid­fielder was the old­est player in a start­ing lineup with an av­er­age age un­der 25, he made his in­ter­na­tional de­but less than a month ago.

“This was a magic match for us, for our young play­ers who don’t have this in­ter­na­tional ex­pe­ri­ence,” Loew said. “The way we were so sin­gle minded in this vic­tory, it was im­pres­sive.”

• C.J. Sapong, Il­son Pereira and Roland Al­berg scored as the Philadel­phia Union beat the New Eng­land Revolution 3-0 in an MLS game.

Mur­ray set to be­gin ti­tle de­fense.
