Wright's Socceroos exit Confederations Cup

Bailey Wright was a second-half substitute for Australia in their 1-1 draw with Chile in the Confederations Cup - a stalemate that confirmed their exit from the competition.

The City defender had started the Socceroos' two previous group encounters - a 3-2 loss to world champions Germany and a 1-1 draw with African Cup of Nations winners Cameroon.

They needed to beat Copa America holders Chile by a two-goal margin to reach the semi-finals, and they did take the lead through winger James Troisi's effort.

However. Martin Rodriguez equalised from close range for the South Americans, ensuring a share of the spoils in Moscow.

City's Wright - who joined the club from Preston North End last January - came on for the final 18 minutes of the game, just after Chile's goal.

The draw means Australia finish third in the group on two points and they will now head home from Russia.
