Brazil-Chile

Julio Cesar, harshly criticized for hs performance after Brazil lost to the Netherlands in the 2010 World Cup quarterfinals, stopped the first two Chilean attempts in the shootout as Brazil won, 3-2, after its match with Chile ended, 1-1.

"I hope in the next matches things won't be decided by the penalty kicks," said Julio Cesar, who could be seen crying before the shootout. "Otherwise, our families will die from heart attacks."

Brazil vs. Chile (World Cup):
1962:Brazil 4-2 (semifinals)
1998: Brazil 4-1 (round of 16)
2010:Brazil 3-0 (round of 16)
2014: Brazil 1-1, 3-2 on PKs (round of 16)

Brazil took the lead in the 18th minute on a goal by defender David Luiz after a corner kick was flicked on by captain Thiago Silva, but the Chileans took advantage of a bad giveaway by Hulkin the Brazilian end to even the score on a goal by Alexis Sanchez five minutes before the end of halftime.

Brazil dominated the late stages of regulation but could not beat Chile's Barcelona-bound keeper Claudio Bravo, who finished the game with 12 saves. But it was Chile that had the best chance in overtime as sub Mauricio Pinillatook the woodwork with seconds left in the second period.

The post would be the difference in overtime as Chile rallied from a 2-0 deficit to even the shootout heading into the fifth round, but Gonzalo Jarahit the post after Neymarslotted home his shot.

"The Brazilian people needed this," said Julio Cesar. "We all needed this. We knew it was going to be tough."

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolariattempted Chile, which had knocked out defending champion Spain with a 2-0 win in the group stage was going to be an awkward opponent for his team.

In a match that produced 51 fouls and seven yellow cards, Chile help on and after conceding possession to Brazil for much of the second half and overtime, almost won the game in the dying seconds on Pinilla's shot.

"That near goal was hard for us," said Chile coach's Argentine coach, Jorge Sampaoli. "It would have been an historic moment for Chile."

Chile has never beaten Brazil in Brazil.

    James is awesome! Hopefully, the US has someone coming up through the ranks with similar skills and playmaking abilities.
