Lars Stindl is undoubtedly the winner in regards to Joachim Loew's decision to leave Germany's World Cup winning stars at home and blood fringe players at the Confederations Cup.Stindl netted in both Monday's 3-2 opening win over Australia and Thursday's 1-1 draw with Chile – a good return from his four shots on goal from both Group B games. However, Stindl's chance came when Loew announced he was not taking his established stars to the Confed Cup.He worked tirelessly to offer a platform on attack and calmed German nerves when Alexis Sanchez gave Chile an early lead.With halftime approaching, he timed his run into the area so when Jonas Hector put in a low, hard cross it was Stindl's outstretched boot which claimed a classic center forward's goal to equalize.
