Group B competition in the eight-team 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup gets underway on Sunday with a showdown that will live stream from Moscow, with African Cup of Nations winners Cameroon taking on Chile. The Chileans surprised Lionel Messi and Argentina last year to take the Copa America — the South American championship — earning the country its first-ever berth in the Confederations Cup, held this year in Russia.
To find out how to watch a live stream of the Cameroon vs. Chile Confederations Cup match, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. Moscow Standard Time on Sunday, June 18, at Otkrytiye Arena in the Russian capital city of Moscow. Fans in the United Kingdom can catch the live stream starting at 7 p.m. British Summer Time, while in the United States, the game gets underway at 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 11 a.m. Pacific.
While Chile are heavy favorites, with British bookmakers placing the odds at five to one in favor of the South American title holders, one of their key players — Arsenal winger Alexis Sanchez — appears likely to miss the contest with an ankle sprain. Sanchez tweaked the ankle during a training session on Thursday.
But with or without Sanchez, Cameroon’s Belgian Manager Hugo Broos believes that he has the potential key to staging an upset over the Chile side.
“We must have a good defense. If we don’t have this, we won’t win the game tomorrow,” Broos said at a Saturday press conference. “We have an offensive tactic for Sunday but we are also aware of the power of Chile’s attacking players. Modern football is defending and attacking.”

Cameroon’s Benjamin Moukandjo, who plays club football with French Ligue 1 side FC Lorient, said that the unity of the Cameroon team gives the underdog side a chance against the world’s top competition.
“Over time, and especially during the Cup of Nations campaign, we all became firm friends. We headed off to the tournament as a team, but while we were there we became a family,” the 28-year-old forward said. “We knew that we had to create a real team spirit so that we could compete with nations with talented individuals, because we don’t have any real stars in the team.”
The FIFA Confederations Cup has been contested every four years since 1997, in the year before the FIFA World Cup and in the same country, acting in essence as a dress rehearsal for the world’s most popular sporting tournament. But the winner of the Confederations Cup has never, at least not yet, gone on to win the World Cup.
