TO SQUARE IT OUT: Germany's Draxler and Chile's Sanchez

The two-week World Cup warm-up competition that featured eight countries will come to an end with the tournament’s best teams fighting for the crown.

Two-time Copa America winners Chile will face Germany in Sunday’s Confederations Cup final at Krestovsky Stadium, Saint Petersburg in Russia.

This will be a contest between the two teams that have been a joy to watch and which have improved over the past decade.

The world champions Germany remain favorites heading into the Cup final. However, it is their opponents who possess the two biggest names left in the competition, Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez and Bayern Munich’s Arturo Vidal.

Germany progressed to their first ever Confederations Cup final easily with a 4-1 victory over Mexico in Sochi on Thursday night.

Chile’s Claudio Bravo saved three penalties as they reached the Cup final after a 3-0 shootout win over Portugal on Wednesday after a goalless draw in Kazan.

Germany and Chile settled for an entertaining 1-1 draw in the group stage of the FIFA 2017 Confederations Cup with goals from Alexis Sanchez of Chile, who scored the first goal in the sixth-minute while Germany’s Lars Stindl scored the tying goal in the 41st-minute of the first half.

The back to back South America champions and World champions will meet again to decide whose side gets to take home their first ever Confederations Cup trophy.

Probable line-ups:

Germany: Ter Stegen (GK), Mustafi, Hector, Ginter, Draxler, Goretzka, Stindl, Can, Sule, Kimmich, Rudy

Chile: Herrera (GK), Isla, Medel, Jara, Beasejour, Hernandez, Diaz, Aranguiz, Vidal, Vargas, Alexis
