Try telling Chile and Germany that the Confederations Cup is a pointless trophy.
The competition may not quite be as prestigious as the Word Cup, which takes place in 12 months time, but an international tournament is an international tournament.
And it was clear to see that both Chile and Germany were desperate to win the competition on Sunday evening.
Germany ran out 1-0 winners in what was an extremely fiery encounter final.
There were plenty of clashes between the two sets of players, including Gonzalo Jara somehow avoiding a red card after an elbow on Timo Werner – despite the use of VAR.
