Late Goals Sink CameroonJune/19 | pm:12:03 / No Comments 367 views
Late goals from Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas gave Chile all three points in a 2-0 win over Cameroon in their opening match in Group B at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow in front of a crowd of 33,492.
Tournament debutants Chile thought they scored the opening goal right before half-time when Eduardo Vargas’ effort was originally given as a goal, but the video assistant referee called it back as the Tigres UANL forward was in an offside position.
Alexis Sanchez came off the bench in the second half, and the Arsenal forward made an impact when his cross found Vidal, who leapt to head in La Roja‘s winning goal in the 81st minute. Vargas eventually got his goal, when he scored on a second-chance opportunity after Sanchez had weaved around Cameroon’s defence and his shot was blocked and eventually fell to Vargas who made no mistake from close range.
