Brazil vs Chile World Cup 2014 player ratings: Neymar or Alexis Sanchez - who was the star man?
Man-for-man marking from the first knockout game of the tournament
Saturday 28 June 2014
Julio Cesar was the hero for the hosts, saving two penalties as Brazil just got past Chile thanks to a penalty shoot-out.
Gonzalo Jara might have been the unluckiest man in Belo Horizonte, scoring an own goal after 18 minutes and then missing Chile's decisive penalty.
But the underdogs were full value, perhaps even deserving to beat a lacklustre Brazil.
Their star man Alexis Sanchez drew the teams level before half-time, but neither side could find a winner in an entertaining, end-to-end clash.
Extra-time was a nervy affair, but Chile thought they had won it when Mauricio Pinilla crashed a thunderbolt back off the crossbar in the final moments.
The game went to penalties and it was Brazil who held their nerve to reach the quarter-finals.
Who do you think was the man of the match? Let us know in the comments below.
