Cesar stars as Brazil slinks into quarters on penalties

Belo Horizonte: Alexis Sanchez pounced on poor Brazilian defending to cancel out an opener for the hosts that appeared to be an own-goal by Jara, but was awarded by Fifa to David Luiz. Nervy Brazil beat Chile 3-2 on penalties to reach the World Cup quarterfinals after an epic battle. Gonzalo Jara missed the decisive penalty for Chile, to continue his country’s losing record in 1998 & 2010 WCs against Brazil. Willian and Hulk missed, as Luiz, Marcelo and Neymar scored while Man of the Match Julio Cesar made vital saves from Mauricio Pinilla and Sanchez before 57,714 fans in Estadio Mineirao. Mid-fielder Gustavo is suspended for a match after being cautioned.
