Alexis Sanchez became Chile’s all-time leading scorer with an early goal in their 1-1 draw against Germany in a clash between the top two in Group B at the Confederations Cup on Thursday.
Lars Stindl equalised for the world champions just before halftime although the game petered out in the second half as the high-octane Chileans appeared to run out of gas.
The result left both teams level on four points each from their opening two games, although Chile have the better goal difference. Australia and Cameroon have a point apiece after their 1-1 draw earlier on Thursday.
Sanchez’s goal was his 38th for Chile in 113 appearances as he overtook the previous scoring record held by Marcelo Salas.
