A youthful Germany team will look to solidify their country's place as the world's dominant football nation, while Chile players believe that a win on Sunday puts their country atop the world as the two face off in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup final, which will live stream from Russia to crown the champion of this year's elite, pre-world Cup competition.
To find out how to watch a live stream of the Germany vs. Chile showdown, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Kickoff is scheduled for 9 p.m. Moscow Standard Time at Krestovsky Stadium in St. Petersburg, Russia, on Sunday, July 2. In the United Kingdom, that start time will be 7 p.m. British Summer Time while in the United States, the match will get underway at 2 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 11 a.m. Pacific. In Germany, the match will get underway at 8 p.m. Central European Summer Time, while in Chile, start time will be 2 p.m. Chile Standard Time.
While Germany, as they have throughout the Confederation Cup this year, fields a starting XI without the stars of the 2014 World Cup winning side, the youthful German players select by Manager Joachim Loew have proven that their country remains a World Cup contender even as the next generation takes over. In a group stage match back on June 22, the young Germans held the veteran Chile squad — featuring starts such as Alexis Sanchez of Premier League Arsenal and Arturo Vidal of Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich — to a 1-1 draw.

Despite the fact that Germany is sending out an almost entirely different side than the team that won the World Cup in Brazil three years ago, Vidal believes that his team can effectively win the world championship by defeating Die Mannschaft on Sunday.
"We have proven our value on the pitch. We beat Argentina, which is one of the best teams and a few days ago we beat Portugal, the European champion," the Bayern Munich star said on Saturday. "So tomorrow, if we win we will be the best team in the world."
A win would give the South Americans their third international championship in as many years, after back-to-back Copa America victories. La Roja sent Cristiano Ronaldo and his European Champion Portugal side packing with a penalty kick win in the semifinal on Wednesday.
Would La Roja of Chile really establish themselves as the best team in the world with a win over the reigning World Cup champions on Sunday? Alternatively, will the youthful Germany side prove that the German era of dominance in world football is here to stay — at least until next year?
