Germany & Chile: The ultimate Confederations Cup combined XI

The Confederations Cup began last week, acting as the warm-up for Russia’s World Cup next summer, and the group stages kick into life with a huge group stage clash between Chile and Germany.

World champions Germany tackle Copa America winners Chile at the Kazan Arena, in a match where some of the finest talents in world football will be on display and where both sides can make a huge statement ahead of next summer’s showcase tournament.

With some of the best players in the world are on display, a combined XI between the world champions and their South American counterparts is bursting with talent.

Germany’s squad is vastly different to what you’d expect to see at the World Cup next summer, with Joachim Lowe handing opportunities to young players, whereas Chile have largely stuck to the squad that led them to two consecutive Copa America successes.

This line-up has the perfect balance of experience and youth, with the former provided by South America whilst the latter comes from Europe.

You may not fancy Chile for victory but you should definitely reassess the situation, as Alexis Sanchez’s side could cause the world champions a wealth of problems for Germany’s young side.
