World Cup holders Germany secured a first Confederations Cup title after a 1-0 victory against Chile on Sunday in St. Petersburg, Russia.
The only goal of the game was scored by Lars Stindl in the first-half following a mistake by Marcelo Diaz.
Chile’s Arturo Vidal and Angelo Sagal both blazed over the bar in the closing stages, attempting a comeback, but the young Germans held on to the win.
In the third-place playoff, Adrien Silva scored an extra-time penalty as Portugal came from behind to beat Mexico 2-1 in Moscow.
Luis Neto bundled into his own net to hand Mexico the lead, but Pepe stabbed home a stoppage-time equaliser to force an extra 30 minutes at Spartak Stadium.
The eight-team tournament is a test-run of facilities ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, and Germany are champions.
