05:24 (IST): The final whistle is blown! So that is that for the match. Chile putting in an impressive performance as they win 3-1. There is an audible sigh of relief from Chile's players and fans. The loudest of all will have come from manager Sampaoli, whose changes in the second half yielded great results. It was two subs who landed the killer punch, with Pinilla's effort rebounding off Ryan for Beausejour to drill home. What looked like being a cut and dried Chile win after 14 minutes turned out to be anything but. Australia responded superbly after Sanchez and Valdivia had given Chile a two goal lead, and veteran forward Tim Cahill added another fine header to his scrapbook. Australia went close to equalising on both sides of the half-time break and Bresciano almost levelled but Bravo pulled out a super save. It really was an excellent clash here tonight, but Chile just had the little bit extra in the tank. Australia did not disgrace themselves by any means and Group B is off to a flyer.


05:21 (IST): GOAL! What a strike from Jean Beausejour! The Wigan man fires in a superb 25 yard drive after Maty Ryan makes a super save from Pinilla.
