Chile has defeated Cameroon 2-0 in a group stage match of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup which is underway in Russian Federation.

Chile had the ball in the back of the net on the stroke of halftime, however the Video Assistant Referee ruled that Vargas was offside.

The Copa America champions will begin their race to the title when they face African Champions, the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in the eight-team competition which serves as a test run of facilities ahead of next year's World Cup finals.

Chile sealed the win in stoppage time, as Vargas got on the score-sheet with a finish from close range after Sanchez had been denied, 0-2.

Referee Damir Skomina awarded the goal and Chile's players started an elaborate goal celebration, but the decision was then sent for video review - the key piece of new technology being debuted by Federation Internationale de Football Association at the Confederations Cup.

Along with Chile and Cameroon, Group B includes Germany and Australia that will play their match in Sochi on Monday.

Cameroon was under pressure immediately, when Eduardo Vargas' first-minute shot cannoned off the post and rebounded back into goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa, nearly going in.

Chilean national team coach Juan Antonio Pizzi confirmed on Saturday that La Roja squad may play their Confederations Cup opening match without two of its best players.

Benjamin Moukandjo went close to breaking the deadlock for Cameroon in the 66th minute but his curling free-kick sailed inches wide of the upright.

The Arsenal forward's dinked cross was met by Vidal, whose powerful header gave him a 23rd goal for his country.

After the game's second review, the goal and three points for Chile were confirmed.
