Brazil knocks out Chile in the Round of 16

Neymar scored the winning penalty Saturday to give Brazil a 3-2 shootout win over Chile in the second round of the World Cup. The match had ended 1-1.

David Luiz scored for the World Cup hosts in the 18th minute after Thiago Silva deflected Neymar's corner kick toward the far post. Luiz was given the goal but Chile defender Gonzalo Jara may have touched the ball before it went in.

Chile equalized in the 32nd after Eduardo Vargas intercepted Hulk's pass and found Alexis Sanchez, who scored from the right side of the penalty area with a shot toward the far post.

Hulk thought he put Brazil ahead 10 minutes into the second half but referee Howard Webb disallowed the goal, ruling Hulk took down a long pass with his arm.

In the penalty kicks, Neymar scored the third penalty after David Luiz and Marcelo also scored from the spot.

Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar saved the first two penalties and watched Gonzalo Jara's final attempt hit the post.

Brazil will next face either Colombia or Uruguay in the quarterfinals.
