Chile defender Gonzalo Jara appeared to strike Germany forward Timo Werner with his elbow in the second half of the tie, which led to the Serbian official consulting the Video Assistant Referee.

After deliberation, Mazic came to the conclusion that Jara was deserving of a yellow card, despite a red card looking likely.

The decision from the official sparked a backlash on social media, with players, pundits and supporters directing their frustration at the man in the middle. 

Lars Stindl put Germany in front in the first half following a mistake in the Chile backline, with the South American champions unable to find their way back into the game.
