hazy Saturday afternoon in Rio. Copacobana Beach is emptying fast
because they're all heading to the farm park. The host nation set for
the knockout stages of the World Cup. Chile are the opposition and
there is a golden glow across was ill. It is not just the sunshine.
Once, White was my colour, the colour that we walk, we all wore. It
was the colour I wore in 1950 when our destiny, the World Cup, was
handed to Uruguay. I cried for eight years with my
country. We called it a new law and white was washed away from our
shirts and memories. We had to fill the void with another colour. Yellow
became Brazil. It became us. The colour of the people, the ordinary
people and the extra people. We colour of the people, the ordinary
painted the world with yellow in streaks and pattern. In 1970 we
paraded that yellow to the world. Colour television. Now when I think
of yellow I think of victory and passion, euphoria. The colour of
sunshine. Yellow is precious. Yellow is the
colour of Brazil. Like Yellow is precious. Yellow is the
it is the most cherished of objects. And the men in yellow have arrived
at the Estadio Mineriao. Neymar already has four goals to his name
and is very much the poster boy for the Brazilian fans. Chouly?s best
performance at the World Cup came on the Brazilian fans. Chouly?s best
home soil in 1962 when they finished third. But they have
home soil in 1962 when they finished the second round since.
They are catching on. Alan Hansen and Alan Shearer and Rio Ferdinand
are in the studio. This is where it begins. Tingling with anticipation.
What we are going to see is drama and excitement, euphoria, heartache.
It never ceases to amaze me the chasm of difference between winning
and losing. Then the supporters and managers, those different emotions.
That'll -- let battle commence. Brazil have in getting pretty
emotional but they do seem relaxed as the tournament has progressed.
They do look relaxed, singing. England are stonefaced, focusing on
the task ahead. These guys are playing bongos! It is normal for
them. Speeding to Cristiano and others they said they always feel
relaxed and confident. -- speaking. Scolari was hoping to avoid Chouly.
I do not know why because they have got a fantastic record against
Chile. They closed it down quickly. But in the final game against
Holland it was different. Holland did a job on them. So it will be
interesting how they face up today. I think they need to improve. It all
comes down to their star player, Neymar.
A reminder of how the final games at shaping up.
The BBC will have live coverage of France -Nigeria on Monday. Then
Argentina -Switzerland and Belgium - USA, both those games on Tuesday.
Brazil are of course the favourites. They have not won a World Cup since
2002. So the pressure is on especially in their home country.
Part of that team in 2002 of course was Janine yell. And we can hear
from him. Luiz Felipe Scolari says he is
nervous about this match. You know Scolari well, what will he be saying
to the players? He will take the pressure off them,
encourage them to play more set pieces. Those set pieces will be
important for Brazil today. What do you make of the change, Fernandinho
in for Paulinho. Well Paulinho likes to go forward and he was not going
forward. Fernandinho may give him some more freedom, for Neymar to
play. Citing Fernandinho, that is why Scolari opted for him. And it is
a carnival atmosphere here but it is still tense. How do you feel as a
Brazilian? I am nervous. The supporters will be very important.
One more player for Brazil. Everyone needs to become but because the game
will be tough. Brazil has a great side. But I'm excited as are the
supporters. We expect Brazil to play well and win the game.
Well history is against Chile. They have never beaten Brazil in Brazil
and have lost their three previous World Cup meeting. Tim Vickery has
been assessing their chances. Chile are about to confront the
Demons of their past. After their victory last Monday against Cameroon
the Brazilian press built up the claims of Neymar. He was the man who
inspired Brazil to a semifinal victory over Chile and there were
posts is back in 1962. And victory over Chile and there were
ended their interest in France 1998 and South Africa 2010 as well. But
this Chile side, perhaps the best ever, they want to write their own
history. Their coach has the resources -- a talented group of
players coming into their prime and an idea. He says the style of his
team is non-negotiable. Attack, play in the opponent?s half. It has
already ended the reign of world champions Spain and running are
still?s party is next on the list. Chile have no interest in parking
the bus they want to drive it straight through you with their mass
support coming along for the ride. Not so long ago the country
celebrated the return of 30 trapped miners with a simple refrain,
chanted now by the thousands who follow the team. It serves as a
constant reminder that on and off the field Chile are capable of
succeeding against the odds. And this is how they line up. The
captain has signed a four-year deal with Barcelona on Wednesday. Gary
Medel winds up in the back three after overcoming a muscle strain.
The midfield players have started every game so far. Arturo Vidal
ahead of them. He was rested for the last game after recent surgery.
Sanchez is again to partner Vargas. We have seen a lot of Sanchez with
Barcelona but Vargas is also influential. He scored in his past
two games against Brazil. I think him and Sanchez are
dangerous, they worked their socks off between them. And they have
ability. off between them. And they have
against Australia. This for me is one of the best goals
against Australia. This for me is tournament. Just watched the passing
between them. They know exactly where the other is. The ball comes
into Vargas and what the finished. Come and balanced. A great finish.
So those two will be a handful. The other aspect of the game that
has been influential and The other aspect of the game that
at times is depressing. -- the pressing. You saw that against the
Spanish. If the front two are pressing then the rest have to press
behind otherwise it is useless. Here you see the front pair working
relentlessly. It reminds me of Barcelona three years ago. Sanchez
and Vargas. And then they all fly in. They set of attacks like that
and the goal against Spain was a prime example. The downside is that
you use a lot of energy playing like that. They are looking a little bit
tired. To go deep into a tournament like
this sometimes you have two preserve energy and have something for the
later stages. These guys go full energy and have something for the
that could be a sticking point them later in the tournament.

tonight. David Luiz has overcome a back

dropped after a run of poor form. And expect plenty of movement from
Neymar. And Fred is to lean the line once more. -- lead. We are praying
for Fred to score a hat-trick! All eyes of course on Neymar. His record
could be in his sights. The moment that made Neymar. A nation held its
breath. They expected victory, but Brazil had not proved themselves on
the big stage for 12 years. With murmurs of discontent rumbling
through the country, the Brazilian side needed to get off to a good
start. And when it mattered, Neymar delivered.
How good is Neymar? Can he be a legend like you? He comes from my
base. My son was his trainer because he was a coach there. He has a great
future, of course. I hope he does the same what I did for Brazil
because it is important for us. The Brazilian Number Ten, an icon, but
wearing the shirt this World Cup carries extra expectation. It is a
big pressure for Brazil and four Brazilian players. I have this
opportunity to be in the World Cup and it is a pressure because Pele
wore this number on his shirt, but when a player goes on the field, he
can forget this type of thing. Now in this moment it is Neymar and he
is ready for this pressure. I think he is doing very well in this World
Cup. Three games, four goals, he is the star man. The secret to his
success is simple, played the Brazilian way. He has to be himself
all the time and thinking about football and how he likes to think
about football. Relax, play like you are just having fun. He just has to
do that. Be free and score a lot of goals for Brazil. He is a very nice
guy, he is young, he is a talented player and everything that happens
with him maybe he does not know how great it is. Not bad pundits! I
loved his goal against Cameroon. A difficult technique and he made it
look so easy. This is difficult technique and he made it
goal. It is the execution that is sensationally good. He has the
picture in his head already what he is going to do. Other players might
have taken a touch, not this guy. He was very relaxed. That looked so
easy, that technique is anything but easy. To get the pace on the ball as
well. The contrast between him and Barcelona shirt and a Brazil she is
unusual. He looks more relaxed. Why is that? He enjoys going out there
and performing in front of crowds, he is an exhibitionist, and he is
also clinical. It is because he is the main man, he loves being the
main man. We will also talk about Brazil's other striker, Fred. Daniel
Alves has responded to your criticism.
I never said he should be left out, but I stand by my criticism of him
in the first two games. The lack of movement from him in the first
couple of games was incredible. There is nothing at all, he has got
to attack the ball and he is standing, watching, waiting for the
ball to go to him. Quite happy to stand there. But against Cameroon it
was a lot better for him. He held the ball up and he brought people
into the game and his movement was a lot better. He was not content with
the lay off and he got in there. His confidence is up a little bit.
This is his goal that I thought his performance deserved. He had one
touch in the box in the first game. Slowly but surely. He is playing to
what the manager wants. I think the manager wants him to stay high and
not involve himself and keep the defence back. He is not getting
involved, but he is doing a job. He has to do more than what he is
doing. Mind you, I think Dani Alves is a very good judge. What about
David Luiz, you are not sure about him? He reminds me of myself when I
was at West Ham. I went into games thinking about what I was going to
do rather than defending. He has got to change that mentality and his
concentration levels have got to go up to become the player his
potential says he should be. His passing ability is sensational. But
every I looked at there is a mistake. That is not what you want
with a centre-back. You want total and utter reliability. For the
Cameroon goal he is all over the place. He is so casual and laconic
and not looking at where the danger is. He is not naturally a defender.
He does not even know where the foreword is. You do not like Hulk,
you do not like David Luiz. I think Fred is brilliant. These are the
scenes in Belo Horizonte. The whole of Brazil is looking forward to this
one. It is a big ask for the Chilean players as well. When I said Holland
did a job on them in the third game what I meant is Holland sat deep and
kicked a lot of long what I meant is Holland sat deep and
invited them on them in the third game what I meant is Holland sat
deep and kicked a lot of long balls game what I meant is Holland sat
and invited them onto it team-mates from Barcelona, the three of them.
If Brazil are going to win, they have to up the tempo and they have
to play better and they cannot rely on one player. Every single time
they have to move the ball quicker. You are seeing two lots of fans. In
the tunnel we do not do that. I would not be rubbing his head before
the game! They are comparing hairstyles, highlights, the lot.
They are so relax, it is a different mentality in South America. They
will not be relaxed when they get on the pitch. Going back to David
will not be relaxed when they get on I think he can be a great defender
and he can dictate a game from back there and he has done it for
Chelsea. I think Thiago Silva is a great defender. The best in the
world today. Who do you fancy? Brazil. Brazil. Brazil,
world today. Who do you fancy? could be a tight one.
world today. Who do you fancy? possibility of extra time
world today. Who do you fancy? penalties from here on in. The World
Cup has already enthralled and it is about to get even better. Our
commentators are Martin Keogh and Guy Mowbray.
Thank you, Gary. Belo Horizonte is bouncing. This
place has a history and an atmosphere that we are going to
really feel today. Brazil is uniting behind its team as we knew it would.
Momentum is gathering all the time. The chilly support is terrific as
well. It is only next-door, but it is a fair old trek across the Andes
and they have been crossing in their camper vans in their thousands. This
has the feel of a local derby. Forget the time limits, the
supporters might well keep both of these going and going.

O Patria amada There had been speculation that
Ramires would replace Hulk. Dani Alves and Julio Cesar were the only
ones who faced Chile four years ago. On that note, what were you doing
exactly four years ago today? Howard Webb and his team were officiating.
This is their second game of this tournament. Julie's Alexis Sanchez
has expressed concern over his appointment. But hopefully the storm
will have blown over the English referee's head.
having been rested against the Netherlands.
Vargas was the scorer in both meetings of these nations just last
year. And one of them was here in April last year. It finished 2-2.
Four goals in the tournament and the whole load of skills to admire
besides. Neymar has been lighting it up. And a full complement of
substitutes available to both coaches. And there is massive
respect between the two leaders on the touchlines. Scolari having
dismissed was ill?s history against Chile due to what he says is the new
dynamism that they have. -- Brazil?s history.
The group stages have produced plenty of goals and a whole lot of
fun, drama and disappointment. We have had the lot. But not quite a
lot because it begins here again. The last 16. It is when all go home.
It is spine tingling. A fascinating encounter ahead of us. The noise
greasing the players when they left the dressing rooms for the warm up
was something else. To the majority inside the stadium they are heroes.
And those passionate pockets of red around the stadium as well, Chile do
make a lot of noise. around the stadium as well, Chile do
A free kick. Vidal is one hell of a player. He
can play just as well as central defence.
A chance for Chile to get the ball into that Brazilian box. Fred trying
to marshal the back line and make sure that they hold that line, not
his regular job. Looking for Sanchez. Help on the run.
A flick from Sanchez bypasses Vidal. Dani Alves. The captain winning his
50th cap. Can he go all the way and become the first resilient to lift
the World Cup on home soil, what an honour that would be. -- first
resilient. They do press very well, Sanchez and
resilient. They do press very well, for the team. The most obvious free
kick to be awarded yet by Howard Webb. He looks to be in stern mood.
He will issue justice of his own accord. Just buying himself a bit of
time to think about whether he should show a card this early on in
the game. Just a warning. He will not be able
to get away with that again. There is nothing in it
overreaction. Aranguiz went spiralling to the
floor. Quite formidable threesome at the
top of the team. Scolari loves his Quite formidable threesome at the
players. He just put an arm around them. The managers are very

There will be many more of those before the day is done. And it was
Aranguiz. Plenty of feeling. Aranguiz knows what he is doing.
Howard Webb has got to get a grip of this game nice and early.
Gesturing to the crowd. Turn up the volume, please! Brazil do feel that
Chile could have a weakness in this area. Fred says that Brazil to have
a distinct height advantage. Neymar still feeling the effects of
that clatter from Aranguiz. And it is all going on. Fred up against
Silva. Closed down by Sanchez. A blast past the post. It is a good
ball and well defended. Comes onto his left foot. You expect them to
hit the target from there. Dani Alves. Away from Vargas.
That is ambitious. So far just threatened enough to run across his
goal line. And you are a big fan of the Chile
manager? I think he is a master. The way that they press. The front
players, Sanchez is a totally different player and for me he has
got more out of his players than any other manager in this competition.
So much hinges on Neymar so that is a bit worrying. He is their one big
star. If you look around at the shirts people are wearing, his name
on all of those shirts. That cross was disappointing.
Straight into the hands of Claudio Bravo.
Neymar really does have a problem. That would be a disaster if he has
to drop out of this one. He is not That would be a disaster if he has

Luiz. Nice sidestep as Marcel OKane sweeping in.

Vidal. Taking no chances with that. A clear end of the industrial
variety. -- clearance. Fernandinho trying to muscle his way past. I
think Neymar looked more than fit there. We were banging the drum is
of June to early! -- drums of doom. Chile free kick.
Stunning noise around the stadium. Brazil last played here one year and

keeping up his average of possession in a game. Seconds rather than

They are worried about Sanchez and his pace. He really is rapid. His

They only get the one free kick. Gustavo really pushing. It is a
cynical challenge. Gustavo is the one who holds the deepest, but they
are all holding today. Neymar wants to spark it here. He is in a great
area. He will be licking his lips at this one. Claudio Bravo are getting
his angles right. That was disappointing. Claudio
Bravo are made that looks simple, but it was a poor delivery, really.
The pass was not waited quite right. Brilliant up to a point. Brazil
demonstrating how they can It was a handball and it is the
first yellow card of the match. If Chile go through, he will be missing
the quarterfinal. It will be a big miss for them as well. He did not
disguise that very well. David Luiz waits at the back of the
cube. He has not scored for his national team. This is his 40th
appearance. He is towering over his marker.
Bravo was worried about the pace, that is why he did not try to catch
it. That was a bit better, put it in in some pace, test the goalkeeper.
Not the best of punches, but he has cleared the danger. For now.
David Luiz, his first goal for Brazil! They have been caught out by
a set piece just as Brazil were promising. It is a blooming Belo
Horizonte. That was the Achilles' heel from set pieces. Nobody over
six feet. It is about being in the right place at the right time. He is
onside, no problems there, cannot miss. Up goes Big Phil. The whole
stadium, by those in red, lifted off their seats. The only point of order
is, is its David Luiz's goal? He will want it. He seems more
passionate playing for his national team then he is in a Chelsea shirt,
more determined. Brazil in front, a quarterfinal
place is therefore the winners. The crowd here has just gone up another
notch. We talk about it, but there are only so many ways you can put it
into words. The pressure that these players are under to perform is just
incredible. I don't think they see it as pressure, I think they love
it. You have to embrace that at top level. And I David Luiz and Neymar
an example of that? Very much so, they are on fire these players.
That is what he is in the team four, swatting any attacks.
Gustavo belts the ball out of play. Anything Neymar can do, Alexis
Sanchez can come pretty close. He is a different player here. It is
Barcelona against Real Madrid. I hate seeing that diving. Yes, it is
a free kick, but he certainly made the most of it. Marcelo Diaz, trying
to get the ball into the right area. The delivery was not bad, but Brazil
have the numbers. There was a wrestling match. It was
a bit hot-headed. Gary McDowell is angry about it. I think he will get
booked. He is an angry man. Neymar has that tough side. He is a bit of
a pit bull. Just trying to establish whose goal it is. Let's give it to
David Luiz. There is another angry man. There
are a few of them out there. I think it comes from the manager. Look at
the way he is patrolling the touchline.
the way he is patrolling the player. Gary Medel
the way he is patrolling the doubt. It would have been a big
miss. They never stand still for a minute, all looking for the ball.
There is a lovely shape to their team.
Every Brazilian touch is getting loud cheers. Not his best effort. He
can leave Francisco Silva treading in treacle. He started that run from
so far out that he did not have enough energy to go with it. Both
teams working extremely hard. And it is very warm work. Warm and pretty
sticky in Belo Horizonte today. Hulk is the one player who is not at
the same level as everybody else. Fred. There is another one. You are
all very harsh on Fred. Neymar down, lifted up into the air
by Silva. A Brazil free kick. Fred managed to
score against Cameroon. Five goals in five games in the Confederation
Cup five years ago. He is the only player
Fred's moment came and he fell over. Booted out and away by Francisco
Silva. In goes Vidal. Up go the shouts, in comes the whistle. We
knew Vidal would get stuck into his first tackled today. It is quite
theatrical the way he write that tackled. He has to to get out of the
way of it. He is not happy because Neymar is so
vital in this competition. I did not see a card come out. The next player
who does that to Neymar is going in the book for sure.
The name of Neymar starts to ring around the ground. That is
ridiculous. Alexis Sanchez sidesteps Hulk. Too
much pace for Fernandinho, tried to do a little too much. Great effort
from Gustavo. And another free kick. This time Fernandinho the offender.
His second offence. But yet to be punished by Howard Webb. Fernandinho
in again. He has go in the book now, that is three. But just a free kick
once more. He has let him away with it, almost a free for all.
Vidal. Neatly clipped did. -- collected.
Diaz. Sanchez. One of the loudest cheers of the day. Threatened to
open up for a second. The Dell had to improvise. -- Vidal.
I wonder if that is a bit of familiarity with Fernandinho as far
as Howard Webb is concerned. Sanchez has equalised for Chile! Brazil
sleeping there. And their main man has equalised for Chile! Brazil
for the goals comes good for them again. A fine finish from Sanchez.
Chile at level. You cannot switch off for a moment with this one.
Sanchez, just a simple throw in. He just knows the spot he wants to
pick. A pinpoint shot. just knows the spot he wants to

that Brazil defending. Brazil free kick.

game. Playing very wide right-hand side.
Neymar. Got through the tackles to find Dani Alves. It is Oscar.
Looking for Neymar. Deflected just wide. It is a corner. Lovely
build-up. Oscar suddenly in the game. Great defending. Over towards
Thiago Silva. Fernandinho tries to keep it alive. The danger has not
gone for Chile yet. Sanchez. Bounces away from Marcella. What a fantastic
contest. Mena like a bull. You can't get the ball off him. That could be
brilliant. Oscar happy just to accept that Chile in touch and get
ready for a Brazilian corner. It is going to be Oscar who takes
this one. They could well score again with
this height advantage. Swung in by Oscar. Bravo watched it all the way.
Dani Alves. Oscar. David Luiz pulling wide.
David Luiz went into the man as well as going for the ball. I just knew
it would end in that way. No chance of winning that. Was long way from
his position. Just comes off the back of his head. It is a missed
opportunity. Sanchez. Dani Alves. Takes control
and finds Fred. Neymar, just ran it into a dead end. In came Fred to try
to help him out. Fantastic died not pass. Just onside. Great touch at
the end of it. -- diagonal pass. Fred just coming in. Could have been
the hero. You cannot take your eyes off it for a minute. Intriguing,
exhilarating, intoxicating. And all South American clash to savour.
Another one to miss the quarterfinal should Chile progress. Running out
of players. Dani Alves. A stumble threatened to cost Gustavo. Just a
little too high for Fernandinho. That hit Neymar?s hand as it comes
in. Howard Webb just deciding this is the time to start booking people.
41 minutes gone already. These two have been winding each
other up. Not necessarily the players and support staff but those
following them. One Brazilian daily newspaper today... They made their
front page just full of flight times back to Chile!
Dani Alves! Stunning strike. Bravo had to react quickly to get it away.
Lying on the ground their stunt. Fantastic effort. The keeper does
well with it. -- there stunned. I think sometimes he thinks he is
Neymar! Not your conventional central defender.
Dani Alves wins a throw. Oscar. I would like to see Oscar playing a
little bit more centrally. Look at this swerving around.
Chile playing themselves into trouble. Bravo flies through the
air. There are mistakes, there are skills, you cannot take your eyes
off the game because you do not know where the next goal is coming from.
Both teams prepared to work hard to win it back. Great to watch. With
the ball used in the last World Cup four years ago that might have gone
in. This one does not wobble about quite so much. Fred is down hurt. It
is Batman Neymar, though. He causes havoc when he runs at you. -- that

is an important one as well. Headed behind for another corner. It
first half seconds ebbing away. This will be just about the last kick of
the first half. Howard Webb blows his whistle for
half-time. It has not disappointed. Brazil in front through David Luiz,
or possibly an own goal, but David Luiz claimed it. Hang on a minute,
Fred and Gary Medel getting involved. The flash points go on
right the way through to the dressing rooms. Do not leave this
one. A stunning 45 minutes football played at a breathtaking pace in an
incredible atmosphere. Normally you would associate with two South
American sides with a measured build-up and then quick and quicker,
but this is totally quick. For pace, intensity and excitement in
that first half it has no equal. I cannot remember a game being
played at such a pace, both teams playing 100 miles an hour.
Everywhere from back to Brandt, closing down, it has been a
sensational 45 minutes. It has almost got the pace of a
derby. It is frantic, and Oscar played a great ball from
back-to-back and you do not associate that with South American
football and we are sitting shouting in the studio. The tackles were
flying in from the word go. Fernandinho should have been booked
after a couple of minutes, but Brazil did exactly the same. It was
only a matter of time before a goal came along. Chile will be very
disappointed with the defending. David Luiz has a little pool. Did it
go of the defender? Or did Louise Flick it end? I am not sure that
even hit him. I think it brushed him. I don't know where the defender
is going. He has taken a step out of the gold. You have got to be side to
side with your man. I think it was a little tug from Louise that enables
him to get to the wrong side of him. As you can imagine that went very
well in Rio. The back four of Chile, there is no height and no
pace. You have seen that with Neymar. He has identified the
centre-back who plays on the right-hand side for Chile and he
looks like he is running on sand. But the Chileans have got plenty of
grit and back they came. I think the midfielder caught his
eye and he took a step to his right. If he had not taken that step, I
think he would have blocked the shot. You have picked the faults, so
I will say how great a finish it was. He has only got that little
square of a net to hit and he hit it perfectly. Should Brazil have had a
penalty? Howard Webb refused aid. He was brave to refuse it in this
stadium with all the fans screaming. He went for the ball, he missed it.
I think it is a penalty. He gets across his leg. I think that is a
penalty. The moment a defender is running back, any minimal contact,
it is a penalty. As a defender when you are running back like that, you
are desperate and you almost put your hand on someone. I think that
has got to be a penalty. We saw extraordinary pressing from both
sides. We mentioned how well chilly had pressed in the first game. This
time it is Oscar on the right-hand side. All over the pitch they were
doing this. That is your left-back, up the
pitch, pressing and pressing. The defence in Chile, there is no pace
whatsoever. Hopefully we can look forward to
watching ten years more of Neymar. He has been in a few good positions.
Once he did not pull the trigger, the second time he did. That was
unlucky because he gets a deflection. What about that for a
pass? He has identified a weakness in this team. He has not run much
today. He has stayed on that player because his weakness is he is slow.
That is clever. You look at the game and the weak point and you say I am
not going to get to that side because I am going to get a chance
of view. He has had a few, you do not want to give him more. It is a
tough one for Howard Webb. This is a couple of minutes into the game.
Fernandinho comes into the game and it is a booking. Set the tone with
your first tackle. He did the same to Neymar. He did not book
Fernandinho, so he cannot book Gary Medel. It does not matter whether
that is in the second minute or the 42nd minute, that should be a yellow
card. What interests me is whether they can keep this pace for the next
45 minutes. That was absolutely relentless. It is extraordinary. We
look forward to the second half. Let's go back to Belo Horizonte and
speak to Juninho. What did you make of that first 45
minutes? I thought Brazil was playing well. We had two mistakes
and in one we gave away the goal. But Brazil are solid and they are
playing well. We need to ask Oscar to come onto the game. Then Brazil
will be better in the second half. The manager is waving his arms and
he is concerned with Dani Alves. He tried Maicon on training on the last
day, so he is probably thinking of bringing him on in the second half.
He is probably thinking to bring on joke in place of Fred as well. Just
before the half it was all the Chile fans making all the noise. -- Joel.
The World Cup is not the only big sporting events taking place this
year. to take you on a little tour around
Rio with one of our team. Clarence C Dorff gave Dan Walker a tour of his
old stomping ground. Do not embarrass me. What is the world
record? What a embarrass me. What is the world
our little tour of Rio, a football pitch on top of a building in the
middle of the city. Where are we? Unfortunately it is cloudy, but we
could have seen Christ the Redeemer. Football is essential to the heart
of the city. Absolutely, small girls, boys. I have heard the
professional footballers do not take on the kids on the beach in football
because it could be embarrassing. Is that true? Absolutely, you can
really get beaten. Shall we have a look around? Yes. This is the beach.
There is a lake, mountains. It is what Rio is all about. You came here
from AC Milan to play for Botafogo. They love you in Rio. You won
Championships here. We got them back in the league, which is the
equivalent of the Champions League in Europe. Did you have to change
football culture? A lot of these guys come from the slums and they
are less ambitious. But the ones who have the drive is a natural drive to
survive, but once they get the result, you see there is a
relaxation because they can take care of their families. It
encourages them. They need support and they need a manager that can get
everything out of them. Brazilian players have become the best in the
world and that was it. Where are we now? Flamingo Beach. You are at
Dutchman but is there a part of you that once Brazil to win the World
Cup? ! I want the best site to win. It would be good for the country and
the people. There are some very strong teams coming up. I have
worked out the secret to Rio. If you go out anywhere go out with
Clarence! Good stuff. Back to the game. It has
been breathtaking pace. If they keep going like this it will either open
up or tighten up. It has been relentless. The way that Chile
press. If they press then everyone comes with them and that means space
in behind. It just takes one ball in the right place at the right time
and labour are will begin and he will score. -- Neymar. With Holland
they gradually wore them down because of that pressing game. There
was a spell of about five minutes when Brazil just sat there. I think
that could happen again in the second half. I would be amazed if
they could keep up that pace for another 45 minutes. Brazil had
better start taking their chances. Chile have people up front who can
finish. I think Brazil have had the better of the chances. And if they
continue like that then they will win the match.
Willian if he comes on my just give them some different play on the
left-hand side. Neymar is getting both chances. They are just waiting
for him, doing his hair at the moment! Chile really have only got
one game plan. That is the way they play and it has served them well so
far. The longer the game went on against the Dutch, the more
susceptible they were to the pace. And it might just go the same way
this time. If this goes wrong for Brazil I'm not quite certain what
will happen to the country! You could hear the fireworks going off
when Brazil scored that goal. We were neutral because the case was
great to watch. I still fancy Brazil, I think they're the ones
creating the chances. And if they keep up that intensity I do not
think Chile can deal with that. Probably the best half we have seen
in the World Cup. You could not take your eyes off it for a second. If
the game finishes level it may go to extra time and it also the
possibility of penalties looming. Scolari has been there before, the
quarterfinal, he will not be worried. And we hope that Neymar is
OK as well, he got that knock early on but he bounced back. He is the
OK as well, he got that knock early best player in the game and you want
him to be there. But it is a big moment for Chile, they have never
won in Brazil. Neymar seemed fine and he is going to score in the
second half! Time to get back to that second half.
Brazil unbeaten at home to Chile. Spanning 95 years. This could be the
best chance that Chile have had yet to overturn that statistic. Their
national motto is, by reason or by force. The team plays in that image.
Fred in the middle. Neymar force. The team plays in that image.
Fred out to Dani Alves. Neymar given half a yard of room.
The pace continues. The end to end nature continues. David Luiz has
bought his team-mate and his country a bit of time with the block. Both
teams going for this all-out attack. Going toe to toe together. I'm not
sure that is the best policy for was ill. Do not underestimate Chile,
they are an outstanding unit. -- for Brazil.
And it will be a free kick for Chile. At half-time they were
talking about what would happen if Brazil went out, I dread to think!
It would be a disaster. The party feeling has been growing throughout
the tournament. The party would be over. Not for Chile! They are a
strong team, it is unthinkable. Diaz with a free kick for Chile.

Oscar. Great work from Gustavo Colman the David Luiz. Look at Hulk

A prayer being offered up because Howard Webb is coming. It is a
yellow card. Handball is the verdict. That is a hell of a call
from the referee. Michael Mullarkey went across to speak to him. That is
a huge call. They operate as a team, these officials.
Brazil have been rattled by that, they are off-balance here. There is
a murmur right around the stadium. And there is a sense of disbelief. A
massive moment in the game. You can see heads turning all around. They
are looking for a monitor, they want to see it again. Vargas is going off
and on welcome Gutierrez. It is another attacking midfielder to
enter the action. One of their more orthodox strikers is leaving.
We are waiting for another that one because it was a huge
moment in the match. It looked for all the world as though Hulk had put
Brazil in front. Defiant noise from the Chilean
supporters as they went another free Defiant noise from the Chilean
kick. Felipe Luiz Scolari is hopping mad. He is angry, he thinks Sanchez
is diving. He has got to stay calm. The fourth official is Germany's

that. He is pressing the ball high. Howard Webb has been tested to the
limit in this one. He has got to keep a cool head. England upset in
1986 by the hand of God. Howard Webb has just upset Brazil with the hand
of Hulk. That is a foul and his hand is in
his pocket. It is a yellow That is a foul and his hand is in
well. He cannot have any complaints with this one. And it is Gustavo out
of any quarterfinal that Brazil will reach. He is a big player to lose.
He does not catch the eye all that often, but he does a very big job.
You are just wondering if Brazil are starting to crack a little bit.
Chile are just deciding who goes up, they do alternate. Fred is
always back for Brazil when needed and headed away.
There are just a few more niggardly fowls coming into the game.
Ferdinand Eno committed a few in the first half and did not see yellow.
-- niggardly fowls. Brazil cannot get on the ball at
this stage. Thiago Silva is flying through the
air. He apologises and it is accepted. It is rare for it to
happen in this game, but it was all cordial. Two players totally
committed. Jo is getting ready. He is getting a final briefing. I am
sure it will be Fred who comes off. That is a sign of what is building
for Chile. Fred is to be replaced by Jo. His international renaissance
began a year ago when called up to the Confederations Cup squad. He has
been a Luiz Felipe Scolari 's's squad every sense. -- ever since.
The cheers are allowed for Jo because he plays right here.
A super save by Julio Cesar. He got down brilliantly. Magnificent
reflexes from the goalkeeper. He has done nothing really in the game. A
great save, but fantastic movement again from Chile. Aranguiz thought
he had put Chile in front. Brazil are on the back foot. If Chile are
going to win this, this could be their moment.
The supporters are trying to get something going to lift the men in
yellow. They sensed they need to help their team. Rocked by the goal
they thought they had scored through Hulk.
I suppose the talking point about the goal is the way his arm is out.
If you support Brazil, it is a goal all day. It is the near side
linesman. I thought the benefit of the doubt went with the striker. We
have watched it a couple of times now and there is still uncertainty
here. They have to make the call instantly and Michael Mullarkey did
not hesitate. Aranguiz just made the block and
stepped across. Great defending. Again it was a good, diagonal ball.
Aranguiz, we see him one minute at the other end nearly scoring and
there he is at the other end. He is a complete midfielder. So many of
their players could play in any position. It
their players could play in any passport to get into this team, you
have to be able to play in any position.

are an option now in the knockout phase.
In the confederations cup the game went all the way to penalties, Spain
against Italy. And the conditions were so hot. You cannot
underestimate that today as well. David Luiz. I love made that look
easy. Silva put under a little pressure by Sanchez. Brazil carried
in possession, you do not often see that. These quality players, you put
them under pressure, they do not like it. They have just lost their
tempo. Looking for Jo. What a tackle that is. Joel all set to turn it
home. It is a fantastic ball slipped in by Hulk. The defender just get a
touch on it. The faintest of touches. Brilliant piece of
blogging. -- blocking. Sanchez has taken a fall. The play stopped
temporarily. Scolari spoke about Brazil playing at about 80% of the
level they were at about a year ago. Perhaps a bit less than that today.

Ramirez. They just smother you. Brazil have got to keep trying to
play. Get a bit quicker. Seems so panicky.

Brazil brilliant in the final third. Bravo up and away. Chile now going

chance at least to come for either one of these teams before the end.
In the second half we have hardly seen Neymar on the ball. It is all
credit to Chile and the way they defend.
See how quickly they get round to Neymar, they know he is the danger.
A change for Chile. Vidal is coming off. He did have a knee operation,
so maybe it is not a surprise he is coming off. It gives a message to
his followers. On welcome Marussia Pinilla. If you have enjoyed this so
much, there are highlights tonight at 11:40pm on BBC One and you will
also see what happens in the time between Colombia and Uruguay. A
great performance from Vidal. There will be more of the same, though.
Hulk was unlucky. He has got the feeling things are going against him
in this second half. When he sees it again, maybe he will think he
handled it. We have been critical of him in this tournament, but he keeps
going. He has had one great goal and another one disallowed. He may just
be the hero. There were a few groans because
anathema to the Brazilian public. He wins a throw, the second best he
could have done. Pinilla coming on, what a fantastic flick. It does not
matter who comes off and who goes on or where they play, it is all great
quality. Again good pressure from Ramires in
the middle of the pitch. He gives it away. I am told there will be three
minutes added on to the end. If we do not get a winning goal, we will
have extra time. I hope the fridge is well-stocked!
You should see the Chilean television commentator in front of
us! He looks like he is about to burst! And now our friend is seated
again. Sanchez was brilliant in that build-up. You cannot get the ball
off him. I think he smells blood. He waited too long and loud Ramires
to block. He could just sends Pinilla over his
shoulder. This could be it, you know. If this goes end, there is no
way back from this. Here comes the pit bull, Gary Modell. Pinilla now
has the height. It was a wicked corner.
It looks as though the players are ready for an extra half an hour. We
are going to get 30 minutes. We could go all the way to penalties.
Extra time to come. Bring it on. Honours even. The real winners are
asked, watching and utterly gripping game of football. A further 30
minutes to enjoy. It has been intense and exhilarating, Alan. The
second half was not as good as the first half, but it has been great.
Brazil died in the second half, but the big talking point is Howard Webb
who denied Hulk a penalty kick in the first half, which he could have
who denied Hulk a penalty kick in given. And he is 30 yards away. This
is the first one. Is that contact, Alan? I think that is a penalty.
This is a massive call. I think it is the right call because it hits
the top of his arm. But how can Howard webzine from there? I was
gutted it was handball and it wasn't given, but it is handball. I think
it is the right decision. It was a bit of everything, arm, shoulder and
chest. I did not agree with Howard Webb in the first half, but I give
him credit there. It is a massive call. That had a big effect on
Brazil. After that they lost a bit of their impetus. I see him playing
as a number nine for this team. He looks comfortable going either way.
It was a great strike and a great save. Neymar was pretty anonymous in
the second half. He had a chance with a header, but he looks as if he
is struggling a bit. He was anonymous and we did not see him at
all. Then he had a header and 15 minutes ago conceivably he might
have scored. But Chile had a great chance as well. This is fantastic
football. It was a brilliant pull-back to Aranguiz. Lovely play.
That is what you are taught as a kid, play and move and that is what
they have done. I think both teams deserve tremendous credit for the
way they have kept on going. Yes, it has slowed down, yes, the quality
was not as high, but it is still entertaining. It was inevitable it
was going to slow down. I cannot remember a first half with the pace
and intensity that we have seen in this match. And the chance for Jo.
This is good defending. The defender get a little touch. It was brilliant
defending. Everyone looked at Jo and wondered why he did not have his
boot on the end of that. He takes the defenders out of the game. The
ball from Dani Alves is delicious. I think we all want Brazil to win and
we tipped Brazil, but think we all want Brazil to win and
gutted for Chile. They have been fantastic. I don't know what this
place would be like if they don't win this game. Let's remind you of
the two first half goals. David Luiz has been credited with this by FIFA.
We are not quite sure, but he has been given the goal. This was Alexis
Sanchez. This is when you are walking around, trying to cheer your
team-mate up, trying to get your legs back, so this is an important
moment. This is where the manager comes into play. The rhetoric from
him and what he is saying. There will be a lot of tired legs out
there. Sometimes we see where teams get a bit tired and there is almost
a desire not to make a mistake, so we end up with some sort of deadlock
and a penalty shoot out becomes inevitable. Can you see that
happening? It would be understandable. For 90 minutes it
has been full pelt and it might happen. And also those players will
know the penalty takers. The five penalty takers are starting to
think, it could be me in half an hour. I think whoever wins this
World Cup will have to at some time with a penalty shoot out. You have
to admire this Chile team. They are punching above their weight in many
ways. When you consider the players, one has been relegated, one has been
released by a Championship club, one has been relegated, one has been
is unbelievable. But they all believe in their manager, who is on
the touchline. It is unbelievable the amount of movement he does. They
are so well organised, you have got to admire them. Organised,
disciplined and drilled. That is what Chile are. And they have got
good quality. Clubs will be looking at Sanchez, put him up front in the
number nine and Number Ten position. We have another 45 minutes, what a
day to be a referee. Enjoy it. It has been great so far, there is more
to come. Here are Guy Mowbray and Martin Keogh. It has been a
spectacle just watching the players during the interval. Cesar left the
team huddle early and walked right around his half of the field. He was
urging the Brazil fans, to beat the Chile fans, to make more noise. And
the Chile fans responded to that as well. A contest on and off the
field. Bravo looks at the Chile fans behind
the gold. Mouthing words of support to them as well. Away we go. The
first knockout game of this exhilarating World Cup
first knockout game of this disappointed. And it is giving us a
bonus. 30 minutes more. Only right that we get another 30 minutes. You
would not have wanted to see a winner in those final minutes of the
game. Who is brave enough to go and win it, who is going to be the match
winner? Superb endeavour there from Hulk. He is fired up. Look at him go
to the crowd. Just gets knocked off the ball. It is shove. A gesture to
those supporters who cannot contain themselves. It is a difficult area
to defend. Height advantage, they have got to make it count.
Neymar to flick it in. Fired in. Behind for the corner. Good
defending. Neymar. Help from Ramires. Only Jo
can go for this. And Bravo a little slow. That could be a yellow card
for Jo. If he is deemed to have raised his route dangerously in
trying to win it. -- his boot. I think it is the hesitation that
leads Jo to go for that. Keeper takes a backward step. It is a foul
in the end of course. He very nearly gets there.
Jo is OK, Bravo is OK. You would want your centre forward to go for
that ball. Jo has to take it on the chin, Mike Claudio Bravo. -- like.
The Chile goalkeeper will get this one away down the field. Gustavo
Colman the -- Gustavo. Sanchez. Where is he going to go next. It is
Ramires who pushes him to the floor. Such a darting, twisting player. Low
sense of gravity. He just gets away from players. He is clever. It is a
decision that he makes in the end to go down. But so tricky to play
against. Diaz with the free kick. That was a
waste. The last 16 has got off to a cracking start. These are the games
that you can watch next on the BBC. The potential to be games not to
miss. Neymar has managed to win it by unfair means in the view of
Howard Webb. I think he is right. Good decision from the referee. Not
pleasing the crowd. Just catches him. Does not get a yellow card.
Here is another one who is one booking away from a ban. That will
not go down well. Certainly not, he is the idol.
David Luiz with a stout header away. Dani Alves. Sanchez is penalised.
Just to underline how well Chile are doing, you have too considered the
statistics. Scolari dismissed them and said it was all about the Chile
team of today but they have never beaten Brazil in Brazil and have not
beaten them in 12 games since 2000. And Brazil have not lost a home
competitive international since 1975. The odds are stacked against
them. But their manager has been outstanding. His tactics, the belief
that he gives his team. Dani Alves with the Brazil throw.
And Jo receives, or should have done.
Gustavo. Realised Diaz was coming. done.
Jo cannot quite keep it in. He took a bit of stick during his spell in
the Premier League. But Phil Neville was actually a big fan when they
were team-mates at Everton, said he had incredible ability but just did
not show it off enough. The Chile back three coping very
comfortably with them. Not enough to trouble them. We have seen a new
site to Gary Medel. A player who could not stop collecting red cards
during his spell in Spain. Hulk back to Dani Alves.
Silver over to Marcella. Jo just gave his man to slip for a minute.
Gary Medel just gives him time to recover and get back. Brazil keeping
the ball better now. That must have been the message from Scolari at the
end of the game. David Luiz has a bit more work to do aerially now he
is up against Pinilla. Pinilla moving well to get in front.
Diaz. Here is Ramires. This period of
extra time so far has not been anything to write home about.
Making Chile work hard, this pair in possession. Hulk. Dani Alves. The
obvious option was Gustavo. Nice step over. Oscar! Hulk again.
Oscar just could not get enough power in it. Sanchez in the middle,
joined by Gutierrez and Aranguiz. Gutierrez has given it away to
Oscar. Aranguiz then smothered him. Ramires on the run. Incredible
squeals around the ground when Brazil threatened to get anywhere
near that Chile goal. They are dominating now. Entirely deliberate,
yellow card. Dani Alves was not making that run.
Jo just not able to find his man. When you're chasing possession,
you're almost chasing shadows. This is a good period for Brazil.
Lost out to Hulk. And Hulk tries for goal. Bravo. Well again. Neymar leap
for it. A little bit desperate, but defending from Chile.
Diaz. He is down theatrically, but he was bowled by David Luiz. This
was another great save. You can see why bias alone have bought the
goalkeeper. He will be succeeding Victor Valdes.
My cello comes inside and leaves the wide player. It was a huge gamble.
Another free kick again. Chile are not going away.
The time is just flying. You could sit and watch this all night. We
are. We have to. It is fantastic quality. Now it is a free kick for
Chile. Just about time enough for them to take it as well. Will this
surprise you? As a defender he is not going for the ball. He stops the
centre forward going for that. It is a definite free kick and he gets a
booking. He does not even leave the ground. One last bit of defending
and goalkeeping for Brazil before we reach half-time at extra time. There
is no time for anything else other than an Alexis Sanchez strike. He is
standing there like Ronaldo. And he puts his shored up in similar
fashion as well. That will be it for the first 15 minutes. We have been
told that Brazil's passing accuracy in this game has been the lowest
from a Brazil side in any World Cup match since 1966. Does it surprise
you? It does not because the way Chile have been pressing is they are
better in possession. And Chile keep taking it off you all the time. And
Sanchez is in sparkling form. This is still very difficult to call even
at this stage. It could go either way. You have said it, Chile are not
going anywhere. Chile are probably going to rely on the break. You want
to have energy. Has this manager got another tactical change? He really
is the master for me. He has got the tactics right in the midfield. I
believe Scolari has got the players. I would like to see more from Oscar.
Hulk is starting to produce a little bit. He has got to get Sanchez in on
the break. Will Ian is going to come on for Brazil. I think that is a
great move. We know what he can do. We have seen him at Chelsea. We need
another player who can come on and link into midfield. Chile still have
the mercurial talents of Valdivia. He was once said to be one of the
best players in Brazilian football. He is the most likely player to come
on for Chile at some stage. But He is the most likely player to come
Willian is going to come on for Brazil. It is about who wants it
most now. You need Brazil. It is about who wants it
well. The fans have got to play their part. Chile have got small
numbers here, but the noise they their part. Chile have got small
making is incredible. A bit of adjustment, a bit of ice, take some
fluid on board. Oscar has gone off, he has run his race. Chelsea for
Chelsea. Yes, can his he has run his race. Chelsea for
it for him? It is his night appearance. He has scored goals
against Honduras and Panama. What would the whole Brazil give for one
from him now? I would hate to see it go to penalties. Let's hope there is
a winner that can come out of this game. Chile still have that one
extra change available because there is no sign of Valdivia yet. Brazil
will start the last 15 minutes of action of the match. It might yet
decide the team that goes through to play Uruguay or Columbia in
Fortaleza on Friday. Jo will be a prominent figure at
this corner. And headed over by Jo. It was a good
header. He almost gets too much And headed over by Jo. It was a good
it. He just needed the faintest of touches. He has a problem, it is
hard to see which part of his touches. He has a problem, it is
is injured with all that strapping. He will probably need to come off.
The gesture from the bench is, keep going as long as you can. Maybe he
is saying the going as long as you can. Maybe he
tight. Bionic man. Now they are going to make the change and Howard
Webb has seen it. He is making way for Jose Rojas. What pressure he is
and. Nadal has been fantastic at the heart of that defence. He is
comfortable in possession, he heart of that defence. He is
when to come out. He is distraught. He knows he may well have played his
last football in this competition. And what pressure Jose Rojas is
under. Do what the last lads did, no mistakes. Interesting if he goes
into the middle of the three. He limps away forlornly. Jose Rojas is
a trusted player of Jorge Sampaoli. Mena and Isla have dropped back, so
it is almost a five now. He very nearly got there.
That is not enough of an advantage for Chile. They can have a free kick
for Ramires' foul. Their players are dropping all over the place. They
have got to rally themselves for even more effort. The follow-through
caught him in the back. They hurt, they are painful. There is Ramires
kicking through Gutierrez. I think Chile is recharging the battery is a
little bit. The town was good, but the shot was not. Worth a try. They
have definitely gone to a back four. The Brazil fans find their voices
again. They are starting to bloom around the stadium.
You should not be shooting from there. Change the angle by all
means, but get it into the box. Jo will be disappointed. You go in
there for a free kick and you want the ball in the box.
Both goalkeepers are employing the same tactic now, a big boot down the
middle. From me to you. They both went in with boots raise, but the
free kick is to Brazil. Oh, dear. Everything he does passing
wise is neat and tidy. His shooting is rotten. It is. You can forgive
him in these closing stages. The managers are getting hot under the
collar. It is starting to get very nervy around us. With seven minutes
to go and your World Cup fate on the line as the host nation, how much
can you gamble? This is the dream, isn't it? Neymar, who wants to win
it desperately, we have hardly seen him.
Luiz, boy, did he want that! Great defending. Hulk, not this time. Says
he was pushed in the face and Howard Webb for one agrees with him. They
have had a good battle, these two. Webb for one agrees with him. They
Well seen by the referee. Gustavo. Dani Alves. It is over Neymar.
Brazil building to the end. Pinilla has done a good job for
Chile since coming on. Jo could not really jump for it. Hulk forced away
by men. -- Mena. Five huge minutes remaining. Brazil have got to be
patient. They have got to believe they will get one more big chance.
Chile have made it clear now they are shutting up. Free kick has gone
to Chile. Aranguiz has clap. I'm surprised
that not many more have gone down for that. -- has cramp. Hard work is
one thing but organisation is the key to it.
Bravo to get this as far away from his goal as he possibly can. A
little back header from Gustavo Canales the danger.
little back header from Gustavo Aranguiz could hardly run. Lovely
bit of work from Gutierrez. Neymar has got to release that ball.
You would have Aranguiz down to take a penalty if needed. I do not think
he would be able to walk. Two and a half to go. Willian in. A
really good ball as well. Pinilla. That will be cheered loudly in
Santiago. Thiago Silva.
A goal now is as good as a Golden Goal. You do not have those in the
World Cup any more but effectively that is what a winner for either
side would be. A great advert for closing down. Gustavo keeps Brazil
in possession. Hulk goes on another wonder. And everyone else wonders
why. Crazy strike from there. His manager trying to tell him just be
patient. Do not lose your head. Seconds remaining. Penalties are
looming. Brazil has been a nervous country. Not just whether the World
Cup would be a success in terms of organisation but for the national
team. And they might be in trouble here with Pinilla and Sanchez.
Pinilla to shoot! To hit the bar! That was a rocket. Brazil an inch
away from crashing out of their own World Cup. What a thunderous effort
this is. A real let off. World Cup. What a thunderous effort
dispossessed by the mirrors. It breaks to Neymar. Here is Hulk.
Could not hold of the tackle. Brazil corner.
What you can do, we can do better, that kind of feel about it. It has
to go in from this corner. Hulk. Headed away by Pinilla who came so
close to winning it. Ramires. The shot close down. Bravo knew it was
going, took his hand away. And it will be penalties. Just cannot get
the power on it. What a strike that is. We are well into that second
minute. Bravo using up every second of it that he dares.
If that was six inches lower Brazil are out! I said an inch! Howard Webb
just had a look at his watch. He is going to play every second. That
will do it. We are going to a penalty shoot out. Arms in the air
on the Chile bench. Plenty of drama to come yet. We have penalties in
Belo Horizonte. So penalties it is. And the host
nation holds its breath. The recent history for Brazil is not good in
terms of penalty shoot out. The failed to score a single penalty in
their most recent shoot out in a competitive tournament. That was in
2011. All four players missed against Paraguay. In the World Cup,
Brazil have won two and lost one. Most recently in 1998 when they beat
the Netherlands. In that penalty shoot out. We have been in this
position once or twice ourselves. You wonder if Neymar would be able
to take one. All the players would have been thinking, penalties coming
up. The key is if you are going to take a penalty, do not let your mind
play tricks with you. Just do what your practice. If the keeper is
moving to his left do not change your mind. Do not do anything
different to what you practice. Stick with it. Do not change your
mind. I do not envy the players walking up to the all from the
halfway line. I would have been next in Moscow and my legs had gone. The
pressure, the expectations are met thinking about what happens if you
miss. And I am not a regular penalty taker. It is such a difficult thing.
It is a long walk back if you miss, but is for sure. This game you do
not want anyone to lose, it has been fantastic. Then Brazil almost
scoring. Just sensational. I think we still might go on to win the
penalties after that. Just the block buster of a hit. It was a difficult
time for the manager. Some potatoes might be off now. You're looking
around at the guys. The manager might not have confidence in them.
More pressure on the Brazilian players because they are in front of
the home crowd. It is an added burden. It does not matter how
experienced you are. In that walk up every bone in your body will be
shaking. And if they miss, the weight of expectation, it is
massive. I remember 1990 we escaped with two extra time winners against
Belgium and Cameroon. We had a penalty shoot out against Germany in
the semifinal and Bobby Robson got the five of us together the four of
us that volunteered and Chris Waddle! He just offered a few
words. He said do not let me down, there are 30 million people... Not
the greatest support! In Euro 96 at Wembley and 1998 in France against
Argentina, yes there are millions back
Argentina, yes there are millions home and your family and friends are
there in the stadium but it is those 11 guys or 16 guys behind you plus
the manager that matter the most. That is who you just do not want to
let down. But you do not want to let yourself down as well. I have never
taken a penalty and never wanted to. I have nothing but admiration for
the guys who took them. Chile maybe not just under the same kind of
pressure but what a performance they have put on in this game. I spoke to
some South American before this and Chile and Colombia, they had them as
their pick. They have just taken on the manager?s elites and philosophy.
Neymar, 22 years old and already the leader. It does not matter what your
team-mates say to you, it is how you as an individual deal with that
pressure. 1998 David Batty said to me before
pressure. 1998 David Batty said to just smash it as hard as you can
down the middle. He got to do ball just smash it as hard as you can
and put it to the goalkeeper of my right. I asked what happened and he
just said I was under pressure and my mind changed. There is little in
life that prepares you for a situation like this. You practice
and practice but you situation like this. You practice
this atmosphere. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. That walk from
the halfway line to the ball will be the longest you ever make in your
life. The most important thing is to not change your mind. The minute you
do, I have done it against Everton in the FA Cup semifinal. I changed
my mind as I walked up. And you cannot do that. You have to be clear
on what you're doing. Just do what you practice. We are just about
ready. I do not know about you, but I am shaking as well. Prayers are
being offered up. Gustavo has asked for the highest help. Martin, I know
you have not been in this situation. I know you have tried to
read create it. I know you have done the walk in training. It is that
Walker, but we have not spoken much about the keepers. There is a
temptation for the keeper to do a big lunch and a big save, but the
keeper who stands on his feet, that is the most difficult one. Who is
going to be the hero? Two great goalkeepers? Says I will want to win
this. Bravo, the other keeper, has been brilliant in this game, so it
is very difficult to call. Do we have anybody confident enough to
pull it off? They will have done their homework. They will have an
idea which corner they want to put it in. All together on the
touchline. Brazil will go first. David Luiz will go first. Somehow I
had a feeling he would be up there to take one. It has been mentioned,
their last competitive penalty shoot out against Uruguay and Brazil
missed all four. That might weigh heavy on the minds of the players
who were involved if David Luiz fails to score going first up. Bravo
is set in the Chilean goal. And it is a perfect penalty. Brilliant,
emphatic, and sets the tone. Plenty of power and direction. First to go
for Chile is Pinilla. That crossbar has only stopped shaking from his
effort at the end of extra time. He will not want to hit it again. A
brilliant save. Cesar held his nerve. Fantastic goalkeeping. The
lead is nearly coming off this stadium. He did what you said, he
stood his ground. And so many times in these shoot outs we see the team
that gets the first advantage not go on to win. It is a nervous Willian,
spotting the ball very carefully. And he has put it wide. That is the
pressure of the occasion. He did not look confident at all. He almost
puts himself off. He is distraught. Gustavo just sprinted from halfway
to consult his team-mate. That is gone, that has to be forgotten.
Sanchez is stepping up to the mark for Chile. One of the best players
in world football, one of the best players during the game. Saved again
by Cesar! This is all about the keeper. What a fantastic save. It
had pace on it. He read it, great reactions. It so often happens, you
start in the game, you fail in the lottery. There was a hand to it from
Bravo, but it was not strong enough. Brazil seek a bit of daylight. It
was just over the top of the keeper. Aranguiz could hardly move at the
end of extra time. No problem with those legs at all. Wow, dispatched.
Absolutely no fear. Beautiful. Pressure? Here comes Hulk. You
wonder if he is going to be the fall guy with what has happened in the
game so far. This is a massive moment. He is having a look at Bravo
and telling him where to go. And Bravo has got the better of him. I
had a feeling he was going to go for power and the keeper read him. He
knows, he waits. Not the best of penalties, but these guys are under
extreme pressure. Bravo outfoxed him. Two great goalkeepers, you have
to say. Diaz, like Sanchez before him, having had an excellent game,
has the chance to make it all square again. The less said about his
passing during the match, but his shooting was perfect. How about his
penalties? Very laboured in teeing the ball up. And he plans it down
the middle. We are effectively at sudden death now. Diaz has done
well. He runs around it and put it down the middle. It had to be
Neymar. It is all about the keeper for me, really. The pressure on this
young man. The poster boy of the World Cup. Can the keepers psych him
out. There will be another kick after this, but what responsibility
on his shoulders. He has carried his country so far.
Neymar scorers. He has nerves of steel. Well done, young man. The
pressure was on him. Just teeing it up and stroking it into the net. A
quality player. He waited for Bravo to move. You pick first, I am not
going. That is what it is all about. Cesar will want to be the hero. From
Brighton Hove Albion and most recently Nottingham Forest, the man
without a club. Off the post! Brazil win in the most
without a club. Off the post! Brazil joy. A nation excels. It is
desperate for Chile. Chile are going home. Brazil are
desperate for Chile. Chile are going how is your breath?
desperate for Chile. Chile are going for him. It hurts, it is painful, I
thought they have been magnificent in this match. Gonzalo Kara tried to
go for the Hollywood in this match. Gonzalo Kara tried to
corner. He could not pull it off, look at the celebrations. Relief.
Again the woodwork denying them. As it did in the last seconds of extra
time. What a game in Belo Horizonte. What a World Cup this continues to
be. We salute Gallant, brave Chile. The rest of the stadium erupts in
Cheers for Brazil. You wonder after this whether this is really
Brazil's World Cup. Brazil are through to the quarterfinals.
What about that? What a thrilling finale. Such tension, such as drama
and Neymar scorers the winning penalty. Allen, a gripping, gripping
outcome. We mention those mixed emotions. The euphoria and despair.
I feel sorry for Chile. They have contributed massively to this game
and the whole tournament. Unfortunately in a penalty shoot out
there is just one winner. A shame it has to end like that for them. But
there is just one winner. A shame it has to end like that for them. team
has got to go through and if I'm honest it keeps the tournament
going. I tipped Brazil beforehand. Whoever wins will have two win at
penalty shoot out somewhere along the line. The pressure on Neymar was
incredible. C?sar another hero. Only played eight games in club football
this season. You can see the emotion. It is the expectation from
the country behind you in the stadium. This place is just built
around the game. You can see everything there coming out. Tears.
It is not even the last game in the tournament. It would be a shame for
Brazil to go out in the last 16. It would not be acceptable, they have
to do it. To play under that stress is one thing, to take a spot kick
from 12 yards is another. With the eyes of the country on you. Neymar
was sensational. The Chilean players disconsolate. No good news
whatsoever. They have contributed to this magnificent match and they're
distraught. I just had a feeling when they hit the crossbar. I just
had a feeling that we still might go when they hit the crossbar. I just
on and win it. What a start to the knockout stages. The place and the
intensity of the first half was sensational. Brazil did not even
play well today. Both teams played quite well in the first half but in
terms of quality... If they're going to go on and this competition they
will have to play better. If they hit a bit of form they will be a
worry for the other teams. You just start to think maybe it is Bears. --
it is Bears. Whether there is debate about penalty shoot outs but great
to watch. Juninho I'm sure agrees. The
atmosphere is incredible. People around us hugging each other. Grown
men in tears. And this man could barely watch. Unbelievable. My heart
is OK now! What drama your country put you through today. We could not
stay out of this tournament. I'm very emotional to see Brazil getting
through. But from here to the end we will be like this. You think it will
be this roller-coaster all the way through? Brazil need to play the
Brazilian way. We need to put the ball in the field and tried to play
more. This is what we have been talking about. There are problems
for Brazil. The country celebrating now. But there are some serious
issues that Scolari needs to address. Exactly. They need to
improve their game. I thought the first half was OK. In the second
half we did not play well. We expect so much from Neymar when he is not
involved in the game, we have a problem. Hulk played well as well
but not enough to win the game. The important thing is that we still are
the winners. You can go and relax now!
Much relief in the stadium. And right around this country I would
have thought. Just to remind ourselves of that extraordinary
tense penalty shoot out. This was vanilla. -- Pinilla. That is a good
save from Sanchez. This was brilliant. That's little dummy. And
then bang. 22 years old and walking up under that pressure. He was in
control of that situation. Quarter of an inch. Feel so sorry for them.
And how much has this taken out of the deal emotionally? So many
different permutations that can come from this result. I think it will be
relief. In the second half, from this result. I think it will be
middle they had gone dead. And Chile came into the game more. On another
day, they came into the game more. On another
but I think they have to improve massively if they want to win this
competition. I think they can. They have not got to the level where we
saw them last year. But I might just fancy them because they have not yet
reached the level that we know they can. They have had a bit of luck and
they keep getting it. Do you think they're capable of playing better
with the individuals have. I think they have to shovel things around.
For me Fred, what he's doing it does not complement the team. Get someone
like Willian was a bit more pace out wide as well and then you are
looking at the rails threat. Dani Alves will be after you in his press
Conference! Going forward, apart from Neymar, it is a weak point for
Brazil. Defensively they're from Neymar, it is a weak point for
reasonably solid. Going forward they struggle a bit. Remember that
reasonably solid. Going forward they struggled in 1992. And ultimately it
possibly cost them. Well Fred, his struggled in 1992. And ultimately it
contribution is minimal in this tournament. Even when he is doing
all right. That is a problem for them. I thought
all right. That is a problem for started. I always
all right. That is a problem for start in these matches. But the
thing about Scolari, he is so single-minded. It
thing about Scolari, he is so what anyone says to him,
thing about Scolari, he is so it his own way. Pele said the same
thing yesterday. Going forward, they struggle.
thing yesterday. Going forward, they name-drop! Going back to the Brazil
team, Gustavo will be missed. He has been excellent. A fantastic player.
Him and Neymar, for me that defensive job that he does. That is
an important role. Ramires will have the shoes to fill. All to play for.
The excitement still here. Feeling sorry for Chile but the game itself
was magnificent. Just the pleasure to sit and watch.
was magnificent. Just the pleasure first whistle it was end-to-end
stuff. The pace was frightening and it was great to watch. We had a
great group stage. And sometimes it goes a little flat after that. But
they went for it. These two were going back and forth the whole time.
With people like Sanchez upfront. It is exciting to watch. I thought this
game summed up the World Cup. To teams who want to attack, to score
goals. We have highlights of both of the matches today including Colombia
against Uruguay on BBC One at 11:50pm. And there are three more
games coming your way. France against Nigeria on Monday. On
Tuesday it is Argentina against Switzerland and Belgium against the
USA. And we have the cat chat show every morning on the website and by
player. -- catch up show. Unmissable! Brilliant stuff. Brazil
are still in, just. Goodbye. Clara, be my pal,
tell me, am I good man? I don't think I know
who the Doctor is any more.
