Germany and Chile clash for control of Group B at the Confederations Cup on Thursday with Germany coach Joachim Loew talking up the south American champions.
“They have shown in the past few years that they belong to the elite of world football,” said Loew ahead of the encounter in Kazan, Russia.
“They are flexible like maybe no other side, very unpredictable.
“Almost every player is capable of scoring and wants to score goals.
“They are so flexible that, from time to time, you cannot tell which player is playing which position.
Both teams have three points with Chile ahead on goal difference after their 2-0 win over Cameroon and Germany’s 3-2 victory against Australia.
