Hello, everybody. South American Saturday did not disappoint. We have
two cracking games on the way, with Brazil, Chile, Colombia and Uruguay
all fighting for a place in the quarterfinals.
one of the simplest goals you will ever see! I can't believe it. He has
done it again. He has bitten Chiellini. Uruguay are through to
the last extreme. The atmosphere at fever pitch. James, James!
It is going to be good. Two games, three pundits, Phil Neville and
Robbie Savage joined by the South American expert, Tim Vickery. First

game having not lost a competitive international at home since 1975.

from Martin Keown and Guy Mowbray. bouncing. Unlike many of the new
stadiums, this place has a history and atmosphere that we are really
going to feel today. As was rumoured, Fernandinho gets his first
start of the World Cup, taking the place of his Premier League
contemporary, Paulinho Spurs. That is the only change made by Luiz
Felipe Scolari, with David Luiz having been passed fit from a back
problem he collected in training. Hulk keeps his place. There had been
speculation Ramires could replace him in the starting line-up. Chile
have not changed that much since the last World Cup. They have just got a
lot better. Brazil beat them into Hannahs Berg. Arturo Vidal returns
to the team today, having been rested for the final group match
against Netherlands. King Arthur is surely vital to their hopes of
putting the hosts to the sword today. Eduardo Vargas has scored in
both meetings of these nations, just last year.

again. Hulk, down in the away from Mauricio Isla and he's it

him. Chile may be lucky with that one. Cleared by Gary Medel. Straight
to Oscar. Almeida in his way. -- you Jenny men in his way. He gets
through some energy in this game. But he gives away the handball. He's
used his energy to gets close to block, and gets the first yellow
card of the match. If Chile go through, he will miss the

worried about it. That is why he did not try to catch it. Put it in with
pace and test the goalkeeper. Neymar with the corner. Fred raises his
eyebrows and it is clicked across. with the corner. Fred raises his
David Luiz turns it in! His first goal for Brazil. Chile have been
caught out by a set piece, just as Brazil were promising. It is a
booming Belo Horizonte. Brazil 1-0 Chile. That was the Achilles heel,
from set pieces. No one sixth foot. A good ball in and I think it is the
Argo Silver at the near post, his partner, flicks it on, and he helps
it in with his knee. Did Gonzalo Jara gets a touch? I think it is
David Luiz's goal. The whole stadium, apart from those in red,
lifted off their seats. Vidal, neatly collected. Unable to
find the space to shoot and cannot find Mauricio Isla, either. Hulk,
forced to work to clear. Sanchez, against the Argo silver,
getting one of the loudest cheers of the day for quite a non-Brazilian
piece of football. If it has to go in the stand, it has to go, even if
you are Brazilian. It's threatened to open up for a second. Vidal has
too improvise. Brazil's throwing. -- throw in.
Brazil have made a mess of it. Alexis Sanchez! Brazil were
sleeping, there. And Chile's main man for goals comes good for them
again. A fine, fine finish from Sanchez. Chile eyelevel. You cannot
switch off for a minute with this one. Sanchez knows where he wants to
pick it. It is a pinpoint shot. This is what happens at the top level.

Neymar got through the tackles to It is 1-1.
Neymar got through the tackles to find Dani Alves. Oscar is looking
for Neymar! It was deflected, just wide. Lovely build-up, Oscar in the
game, suddenly, Neymar making the run from deep. It just comes off
Silva. Great defending. Oscar spotted Neymar. He beats
Silva. He ran into a dead-end and in came Fred to try to help him out.
Fred, just coming in, could have been the hero. You cannot take your
eyes off him for a moment. Dani Alves! A stunning strike.
Claudio Bravo had to react quickly, to get it away. Fantastic effort
from distance. It is swerving. The keeper does well.
Thiago Silva nearly got himself into an awful mess. A free kick was being
indicated for Brazil but Howard Webb and Mike Mullarky are happy to play
advantage. It has not worked for Brazil, though. Alexis Sanchez
through to Aranguiz! Superblock, David Luiz down, and the scramble
results in a Chile corner. It is like d?j? vu. Was ill

incredible excavation mark -- it is and what a finish. And now prayers
being offered up because Howard Webb is coming to have a word with Mike
Mullarky. It has been ruled out, would you believe? It is a yellow
card. Handball is the verdict. Controversy again. For me, it looks
like it has hit him on the shoulder. I don't think it is his arm. Howard

think he's going to put it in but the defender just gets a touch.
Dani Alves, looking for Neymar. It is straight at cloudier bravo. --
Claudio Bravo. I doubt -- a diagonal pass and Neymar should be doing
better with it. Jo is on the move. Neymar behind him. Only cleared to
Ramires. Hulk dances through two and has the chance but beating clear by
Claudio Bravo. Sellotape it away from Neymar. -- Marcelo took it
away. Brilliant from both players. Bravo with a great save. Hulk goes
on the run and ends up on his right foot. Fantastic save. It looks as
though both sets of players are ready for extra time and we are
going to get it. It could go all the way to penalties. As it is, it is
1-1 in Belo Horizonte with extra time to come. Bring it on.
Jo, just gave his man be slipped for a minute. I think he slipped
himself. He gets away from Gary Medel and then seems to slip. It
gives the defender time to recover and get back. Hulk with a nice step
over. Not a bad cross. Oscar but a tame header. Oscar cannot get enough
power on it. This is a good period for Brazil. Pinilla has lost out to
Hulk. He has charged past Diaz. He tries the goal. Down well again,
Claudio Bravo. Neymar leaping for it. A bit desperate, this defending
from Chile. Very low Neymar has given Mauricio Isla the
slip. It runs away from him. Jo went down before the ball arrived. But he
will get back to his feet to be a prominent figure for the corner.
Miller Neymar's pace again. He just needs the movement in the box for
him. In from Neymar, and headed over by Jo. It is a good header. He
almost gets too much on it. Seconds remaining. Brazil has been a nervous
country, not just for whether the World Cup would be a success in
terms of organisation and passing off successfully, but for the
national team. They might be in trouble, with Pinilla and Sanchez
and Pinilla, shooting and hitting the bar. Mauricio Isla. That was a
rocket! Brazil were an inch away from crashing out of their own World
Cup. What a thunderous effort. He smacks it against the crossbar. It
is a real let off. Here is Hulk. We are already into time at the end of
time. Hulk, headed away. Now he defends. Ramirez. The shop was
closed down. Claudio Bravo knew that it was going. - the shot. That will
be it. That will do it. We are going to a penalty shoot out. Plenty of
drama to come yet. Brazil will go first. Claudio Bravo
is set in the chilly goals. It's a long run from David Luiz.
Brilliant, emphatic. That sets the tone.
First a gopher chilli is Mauricio Pinilla. A brilliant save. Julio
Cesar held his nerve. The lid is merely coming off this stadium. -
first to go for Chile. The advantage Brazil. Spotting the ball up very
carefully. He is put it wide! Chile have the chance to level it up
instantly. That's the pressure of didn't hit the target. Didn't look
confident. Almost puts himself off. He's distraught. Lewis Gustavo
sprinted from halfway to consult his team-mate. That has to be forgotten.
Alexis Sanchez is stepping up to the mark for Chile. One of the best
players in world football, one of the best players on the pitch during
the game. Sanchez. Saved again by Julio Cesar.
This is all about the keeper. What a fantastic save. Gets down. Not
really in the corner, but it's got pace on it. He reads it. Great
reactions. It's so often happens, you are a star in the game, you fail
in the lottery. Marcella. A hand to it from Claudio bravo. The hand
wasn't strong enough. Ozil have got a bit of daylight. He wanted to take
it quickly. Look at the little faint. A little shimmy. Just over
the top of the keeper. Has he shaken the cramped out of his
legs? He put everything through that. No problem with those legs.
Dispatched! Absolutely no fear. Beautiful.
You wonder if he's going to be the fall guy with what has happened in
the game so far. This is a massive moment. He hasn't looked up. Now
he's looking at Claudio Bravo who's telling him where to go. Hulk went
the other way. Claudio Bravo has got the better of him. Had a feeling
that he was going to go for power. The keeper reads him. He knows, he
just waits. Not the best of penalties, but these guys around
extreme pressure. He outdid him, he penalties, but these guys around
outfoxed him. Two great goalkeepers, you have to say. Marcelo Diaz. Mike
Sanchez before him, having had an excellent game with the chance to
make it all square again. Again, very laboured in team the
ball up as he likes it. Diaz plants it down the middle. We are
effectively at sudden death now. He's done well. You wondered if he
might pass it into the goal. Runs round at an puts it into the middle.
It had to be. It had to be Neymar. Pressure on this young man. The
poster boy of the World Cup. Can the keeper psych him out. There will be
another kick after this. What responsibility. He has carried his
country so far. Neymar schools. He has got nerves of
steel. Well done, young man. The pressure was on him. You felt for
him there. Teeing it up and stroking it into the net. A quality player.
Relief for the fans. He waited for Claudio you blink first, I'm not
going. That's what it is about. Julius
The man without a club. Keeping chilly alive in the World Cup.
Off the post! Brazil win! In the most dramatic circumstances. A
nation jumps for joy. A most dramatic circumstances. A
excels. It's desperate for Chile. most dramatic circumstances. A
Chile are going home. Brazil are going on. Tries to go for the
Hollywood penalty in the corner. The woodwork denies. As it did in the
last seconds of extra time. What a game in Bello horizontally. What a
World Cup this continues to be. - Bello hurries on Tay. You wonder
whether it's their World Cup in a mandate. Brazil go through to the
quarterfinals. I think this moment can give to us more belief, more
trust, more confidence. The team can be stronger now. It's so hard to win
a game like this. We've been working on penalty kicks for a long time. A
great moment for Julio Cesar. In the last World Cup he made a little
mistake and we came out of the World Cup. Today was his moment. He
deserved it. David Luiz looked absolutely shattered. Tiring first
time around. It's hard and brutal to watch the highlights. What a start
to the knockout phase. The first half was exciting and tense. All the
rest was dramatic and even more tense. Just as well for you that
Brazil got through because otherwise I would be sleeping on your hotel
floor. Had a Brazil being knocked out, with my girlfriend and my
stepdaughters, they would have flooded me out with the amount of
tears. There's a phrase here that God is Brazilian. Today I think the
woodwork was Brazilian. It was so emotionally charged. It came down to
penalties, but the fascinating thing here. He's tapping the players, the
goalkeeper and those taking the penalties. They are almost
struggling to deal with the emotion. I've never seen a motion in spirit
like it. During the game some of them were crying and at the end they
were crying. I do know how they keep hold of their emotions. Game to game
it's the biggest moment of their life. Neymar almost looks vacant.
The first one is so important to school. I fancied him when it came
to the penalty shoot out. The pressure they are under,
particularly Neymar. He's got so much courage. It was like he was
playing in a Sunday Park league. The biggest moment in his life. He's
been taking penalties or his career. When he was younger he got taken off
penalties. He missed a few Brazil games because he was swearing at the
coach. Everyone else goes and celebrates. TR go silver - CR go
silver prostrate on the ground. This is only the round of 16. These games
are incredible. We normally associate last 16 games with novae
affairs. This was far from it. Julius Caesar dashed Julio
, this is what happened in 2010. Leading the Dutch 1-0. Julio Cesar
completely misses across. He said he knew harmony people were cheering
for him. He's an emotional person he says and he was crying because
individually his team-mates came and supported him and said nice things.
It meant so much because of what happened four years ago. He's been
finding it hard to deal with that. Often there is little to do, but
sometimes what you do is vital. He has been haunted by that mistake. He
was in floods of tears after the game. The comeback he made today,
vital saves during the game and two in the penalty shoot out. The
comparison is Stuart Pearce in Euro 96. We aren't talking about England
though. We've banned them from the World Cup discussions. Two big
decisions today, one in either half. Both involving the incredible Hulk.
I think Howard Webb got it spot on. That's a penalty for me, slight
contact. This, a massive turning point in the game. 55 minutes gone.
I think Howard Webb has got it absolutely spot-on. A great
decision. When we first saw it it looked like it was off his shoulder,
but there it is the bicep. Far Howard Webb to get that decision...
We understand the referee gave that. What was his view like? I
don't think he can see it clearly. There are two players in the way. I
think he can. He's in the perfect spot to see it roll onto his arm. He
gets a lot of criticism but I think he had an outstanding game. Credit
to Howard Webb, but I don't think he can give that. There are three
players in the way. How can you criticise referees are getting a
crucial decision right? He can't see, he's got to be correct. He got
the decision right, but his angle, he can't see it. You think he got
lucky? I think he got lucky. It's good to be a lucky referee, isn't
it? He was lucky when he didn't book the player at the start of the game
because it could have got out of control. Brazil can feel aggrieved
with these two decisions on Hulk. We were playing a game where he
couldn't get but today. Chile came so close. A minute before extra
time, this would've knocked down the hosts from Mauricio Pinilla. Poor
defending from Brazil. What a strike. Chile went toe to toe with
them. One of the best games of football I've seen for a long time.
Chile with the dark horses of the tournament and I had a little wager
on them. Gary was fantastic to Chile today. We can show you the way the
game and that tactically. Was ill were almost more Chile alike than
Chile. Brazil were pressing and they haven't done it all tournament. They
didn't allow Chile to get any rhythm. Closing down again. Oscar
sprinting to the ball. In the first 20 minutes, Chile could
not live with Brazil and I thought they would have a difficult game.
But it all changed in the second half. Neymar going through, great
pace. Closing down high up the field, Hulk closing down in his own
half. In the second half, they resorted to long ball. No centre
forward, Fred, Jo, you need a centre forward to get hold of it and bring
people into play. That is the second lowest pass completion in the World
Cup that Brazil have had since 1966. No plan B. They will not win
the World Cup because of the centre forward area.
Fabulous statistic from Robbie and illustrative. We grew up on the
Fabulous statistic from Robbie and side, the way they moved the ball.
They don't do that any more. They don't beat you on flow but moments.
And the moment in the second half was when the Hulk goal was ruled
out. In terms of moments going forward, you have been talking about
the game while we were watching it and you think the fact Luiz Gustavo
is not available for the next game will be crucial. Since he came into
the side, he has been the balancing point of the team. They had a big
problem just over a year ago before the Confederations Cup, one of
identity. Luiz Gustavo came into the side against England at the
Maracana. It was a surprise. They took him off at half-time and
conceded two goals in the space in front of the centre-backs will stop
ever since, he has been first on the team sheet. He balances out the
side, allows the attacking full-backs to push forward. They
don't have a natural replacement for him. With David Luiz at centre-back,
who likes to go forward and can be loose, Luiz Gustavo is all with the
spare man in midfield to cover. There is no one else to fill in for
him. Especially with Marcelo and Dani Alves going up the pitch, it is
a massive loss. I do not have Gary Lineker's glasses but I have an
important penalty to stick -- penalty statistic. The last eight
shoot outs have all been won by the team going first. It was not as good
as my stat. Tim said it was good. I can't believe you have done better
than me, Robbie. Brazil's opponent in the last eight will come from the
other all South American meeting, this time of the marijuana, Colombia
against Uruguay with an unrepentant Luis Suarez watching from home. Our
commentators are Mark COMMENTATOR: Ever since Luis Suarez
put the bite on these finals, Uruguay have been like gate-crashers
who have outstayed their welcome at the global party. How will they cope
without their flawed talisman? Will Colombia be able to cope with the
weight of expectation from the majority of fans inside the
Maracanazo to Colombia have the side that won the opening two matches
with the exception of Jackson Mart?nez, who scored two from a left
attacking position against Japan. They have never gone further than
this. Diego Forlan's uncle managed Uruguay when these two last met in
the finals. Maxi Pereira is a defensive midfield choice in the
absence of Nicholas Lodeiro, who is injured. The last time they beat
fellow South Americans in the knockout stages, the deciding game
was here, 64 years ago. The marijuana is a great -- Maracana is
a great bowl, washed with yellow. It has been a party town, in Rio today,
everybody watching the Brazil game. But now, the World Cup switches to
everybody watching the Brazil game. this famous old stadium. Quadra, a
great run from him. Maxi Pereira fouled him. That will be a yellow
card, I would imagine, because that is the second foul on Columbia's
dangerous right-sided attacking midfielder. No card by Bordeaux
Khyber is. This is going to be one of those games where everyone is
going to contest every single decision. -- Bjorn Kuipers.
Certainly, the weight of numbers in the stadium is by: -- behind
Colombia. James Rodriguez to swing it in. Away by Muslera, the
players start the game on a yellow players start the game on a yellow
card with the threat of suspension hanging over them, including the
captain, Diego Godin. A chance for Zuniga to get forward. He has gone
to goal. Decent strike. The goalkeeper was not too convinced,
was he? It bounced somewhat away from Muslera.
Oscar Tabarez took over as Uruguay coach in 2006. He has had 105 games
in charge. Another decent spell of possession but where are they going?
By Drago. Movement on the edge of the box by Jackson Mart?nez but away
by Alvaro Pereira. James Rodriguez! A moment of magic! Sheer brilliance.
This is some player. Colombia, again, dancing in celebration, and
well they might. The outstanding James Rodriguez has once again lit
up a game at these World Cup finals. I thought his goal against Japan was
breaded but this is just sensational, in a game where nothing
has happened, one touch, out of his feet, what an absolutely fantastic
strike that is. The balance, the boys, the technique, the ball moving
all over the place. -- the poise. Wonderful technical ability, lashing
the shot past Muslera. Rodriguez has now scored in his last six games for
Columbia. He is the first player to score in the first four games of a
World Cup in 2002, when Rivaldo did it for Brazil. That is why Monaco
paid almost 40 million for him. From the game's point of view,
paid almost 40 million for him. From Uruguay do? Sensational goal.
Absolutely brilliant. This is better from Uruguay. Alvaro
Pereira. A dangerous cross in. Covering at the back by Cuadrado.
Great covering. For a wide attacking player, certainly. Hello. Diego
Forlan and Mario Yepes. The referee telling them no more has done no
good. He closed him off, didn't he, Mario Yepes. That would never have
happened to Diego Forlan before, would it?
A decent enough cross in, and the shot stumpy fingers of Ospina. The
foul is given eventually. -- stung the fingers. Good play down the
left, the give and go, creating the opportunity. This is a good strike.
He did not really make contact with the ball.
They were very good in qualifying, Colombia. Their highest finish in
the current qualification system, qualifying with a game to spare,
second to Argentina. Gutierrez. Jackson Mart?nez. This is opening
things up. Cuadrado. Rodriguez! What a beautiful goal. He scored an
outstanding solo strike in the first half and has finished off a
brilliant team goal in the second. And Colombia lead Uruguay 2-0. Great
piece of play, easily the best in the game. Colombia went back to go
forwards in the end. Great ball in, nodded down by Cuadrado, and varies
your man, Rodriguez. -- there is your man. They open things up, a
lovely final ball and a clever header back and a 16th finish. Seven
in six games for him. What a devastating effect he is having on
these World Cup finals. devastating effect he is having on
these World I am pretty sure that Uruguay will have to make too, if
not three changes. They will have to go over it, completely change the
way they play. He has five goals and these World Cup finals in 2014, now.
-- at these World Cup finals. Love is in the air, the James Rodriguez.
There is a confidence about them. The South American football experts
here today were saying they could be real heavyweights. That is a great
effort from Cristian Rodriguez. He came an awful long way without a
challenge of any note. They are not the finished article, Colombia. They
need to work on closing down in that kind of situation but the goalkeeper
is in fine form behind them. Maxi Pereira. Still full of running. He
has been terrific for his country over the years. A decent cross in
towards the far post from Caceres. Christian Stuani could not convert.
The ball in this time by Cavani. That is where Suarez would be.
Suarez would have made a huge difference upfront, if he was
Suarez would have made a huge form, playing football, instead of
being the decisively divisive footballer we have come to know. He
would certainly have given them more bite. It has come through for
Parreira and Ospina spread himself and saved well. Great save, so quick
off his line. You are looking at one of the goalkeepers of the
tournament, here. I could not of the goalkeepers of the
possibly disagree. Six and a half minutes to go. They are not out of
this yet. Looking for Rodrigo 's and it comes
to Cavani! Good save. I think this is Ospina's best save tonight. I
really do. Hit early and hard, low down to his right. Jose Pekerman,
heading to the quarterfinals for the second time as a manager. He took
Argentina there, in 2006, but no further. Colombia are through to the
quarterfinals of the World Cup for the first time! James Rodriguez with
two special goals, to see off Uruguay. They will depart, largely
unlamented. And this young man will march on. The first was a
magnificent individual strike and the second was a brilliantly worked
team effort. Rodriguez with two. Colombia with two. Uruguay can only
look back on a moment of madness from Suarez, that cost them so much.
But it is Colombia with the man of the future, deservedly through, 2-0.
That is the other all South American Saturday match. Colombia have been
so exciting to watch so far and now they are into the last eight. Many
people think they have a genuine chance of winning the World Cup.
Perhaps. The theme tune of the chance of winning the World Cup.
wonder song, another star, and we are watching him, James Rodriguez.
Here he is. Oscar Tabarez had been saying, all you expect from Uruguay
is that they are hard to play against. The 25 minutes, they
fulfilled the objective. One moment of genius takes the game away from
them, spoil the night of the spoilers. It is the end
them, spoil the night of the of this particular Uruguay side, who
have really been together since 2007. It is the first-ever
quarterfinal for Columbia. This lot 2007. It is the first-ever
Rodriguez now. I had a chat with Carlos Valderrama a few days ago and
he said the thing about James Rodriguez is that he does not yet
understand how good he can be. We saw some real genius today. He was
sensational. People probably would not have heard much about him before
the tournament not have heard much about him before
himself with his fifth goal of the tournament. He is the leading
goal-scorer. I like the fact he is always on the move, looking for
space. That goal was world class, probably the best of the tournament
so far. Here, he comes in off the left. He is in the pocket where
defenders don't like to go. He's a whiz on the move, looking for space
in behind. For me, there's three things about this goal. There's the
look over the shoulder, which the top players have, which tells him he
has time to time, the chest which sets up the volley. The look over
the shoulder is what every top player has. It allows him to see the
defender. It is such a sweet strike. I love the cushioned chest down and
even before he's done it, he knows he's going to volley it. He gives
the goalkeeper no chance. Goal of he's going to volley it. He gives
the tournament so far for me. I told you we liked it. This is the second,
Cuadrado, who had an outstanding game as well, and again, Rodriguez
is always on the move, so difficult to mark. He moves his position twice
and then reacts off the header from Cuadrado. He looks like a real goal
threat. He uses both feet, his right for the second. He looks a complete
player. Your praise also comes from Oscar Tabarez of Uruguay who said
Maradona, Messi, Suarez, James Rodriguez, they do things because
they have certain guess that makes them special. He says he believes he
is the best buyer at the World Cup. Quite a few Colombian stars, like
Mario Yepes, 38, had another unbelievable game. But you picked
out Cuadrado, who you think is another star. Today, he was
outstanding. He takes the team up the field. He is dynamic. He drives
that defenders. He has good pace. With an ageing back four, he gets
into space, and gets them up the park. It is so important. He has a
good work ethic. Look at him, driving into an area. Cuadrado is so
positive. Every time he gets the ball, he looks to go forward, to
penetrate. He looks a bit ungainly at times. This is a full-back's
dream. I would have loved him in front of me because he helps you out
defensively and gets back all the time. He is the best team player I
have seen. Look at his recovery run, you decide to get to the ball and
stop the cross. How money full-backs have we seen not doing that? This is
a give and go, pass and move. Rio said it earlier in the Brazil
against Chile game. What a header, his awareness to pick out James
Rodriguez. I think those clips show how big the pitch is when Colombia
play. Mario Yepes is 38, so he covers himself, I guess, against his
lack of pace, to drop the line very deep. It makes the pitch huge.
Cuadrado, with all the qualities we have picked out, gets them higher up
the field. Let me give you a window into their world, watching the game
this afternoon. After James Rodriguez scored the first, these
two were having a massive argument about which is the best goal of the
World Cup so far. You think it is Tim Cahill, who one goal of the
group stage. Make a case that is. Look how long the ball is in the
air. It drops over his right shoulder, he hits it with the wrong
foot. We said this with Gary Lineker in the office. He said you should
never use your wrong foot but I have two of them. That is great
technique, on the volley, first time. But you say no? There is three
bits of skill in this goal. They're in mind, Tim Cahill is my best
friend in football. This has the look, the chest and the volley. They
are both sensational but I'm going towards James Rodriguez. On my
social media network, I asked which was the best and it was 50 - 50.
Tim, you are the only expert, officially. Which is the best? With
due humility, Robbie has got the statistic of the night but on this,
the two wrong feet, he has put them both in his mouth. All the time the
ball stays in the air for Tim Cahill, it is giving him time to set
himself. The thing about the James Rodriguez strike, there is no time
but his genius makes it. It is like he is operating at a different speed
to the players around him. In the short tonnes of the night but on
this, the two wrong feet, he has put them both in his mouth. All the time
the ball stays in the air for Tim Cahill, it is giving him time to set
himself. The thing about the James Rodriguez strike, there is no time
but his genius makes it. It is like he is operating at a different speed
to the players around him. In the short time the I'm sticking by what
I said. We have got through an entire programme without talking
about England and Suarez. Well done. Tee games down in the round of 16.
Six to go, starting on Sunday. -- two games down.
Gentlemen, thank you. Thanks for watching. The group stages of this
World Cup have had us all on our feet. After day one of the knockout
stages, don't you dare sit down. Goodbye.
Alexis Sanchez has equalised for Chile! Rodriguez! Bella macro Hulk!
It has been ruled out. He has nerves of steel. Of the post! Brazil win in
the most dramatic of circumstances!
