he Samba boys booked their spot in the quarter finals after a dramatic penalty shootout win over Chile.

Brazilian keeper Julio Cesar made two important saves from the spot kick that ensured their victory and eventual knockout of an entertaining Chile side from the World Cup.

Earlier in the 18th minute of the game David Luiz got the Brazilians ahead from a corner but Sanchez equalized for Chile in the 32nd minute when he took advantage of a defensive lapse. The game failed to produce a winner even after 120 minutes forcing them into a penalty shoot out which Cesar came out as the hero.
