Chile put away a tougher-than-expected Australia side with a 3-1 victory in their Group B opener on Friday. 

La Roja built a quick advantage but had to hold on to an inspired second-half effort from the Socceroos before an added-time strike put the match away for good. 

Sanchez headed in Chile's opening goal in the 12th minute after getting a head on a cross from Eduardo Vargas.
