Confederations Cup 2017: Germany's young squad relishing chance to shine in Russia

Preview: Germany v Chile

Loew impressed by youngsters' desire

The favorites to advance from Group B, Germany and Chile, play later on Thursday in Kazan.

Low will know, however, that Chile pose an altogether different prospect to Australia, and possess a formidable mix of tenacity and creativity throughout the team.

"The nature of the tournament with the games so close together, it doesn't make sense going in with the same XI", Postecoglou said at his pre-match press conference.

In this round each team has a trump card to win the match, due to the fact that both of them were losers at first match against Chile and Germany. "We know what to do but it'll be a tough game", Broos added. "We all recognize that we are part of a group of national teams that have great players and have been competing very well".

A win against African champions Cameroon in the early hours of Friday morning (AEST) is a must to keep their hopes of a semi-final berth at the FIFA Confederations Cup alive. "The focus for the game is to make sure we impose ourselves on the game and hopefully get Cameroon worrying more about us".

"They are so flexible that, from time to time, you can not tell which player is playing which position".

He scored Germany's third goal in the Group B game with a deft strike from Joshua Kimmich's pass having won the penalty which Julian Draxler converted for the second goal in Sochi.

Forward Lars Stindl believes Germany's young squad will be able to overcome Copa America champions Chile when they meet on Thursday. "They're one of the most flexible teams in the world". "It's a good memory because we showed that we could play against anybody, even though we lost. Sometimes we are better than our rivals and win, sometimes we lose".

Australia on the other hand were very good against Germany.

For the eighth match-in-a-row and with first-choice Manuel Neuer recovering from foot surgery, Loew will change his goalkeeper with Barcelona's Marc-Andre ter Stegen replacing Bernd Leno.

ST PETERSBURG, Russia Cameroon coach Hugo Broos complained of team buses arriving late and then getting stuck in traffic as he vented his anger over the organisation of the Confederations Cup on Wednesday.

"Their first goal [against Cameroon], Vidal took a ball, it went to the wingers and suddenly the person who was further behind on the pitch was the one scoring the goal".
