On Penalties, Brazil Pulls Off A Hard-Fought Win Against Chile
Originally published on Sun June 29, 2014 12:30 pm
After more than 120 minutes of play, Brazil's World Cup run came down to penalty kicks on Saturday.
Remember, we've moved on to the knock-out round, so a win means a team moves on; a loss means they go home.
Like the game that preceded, the penalty shootout was heart-stopping and thrilling, with Brazilian goal keeper Julio Cesar stopping Chile's first two kicks, only to have Chile come back and tie the penalty kicks at 2-2.
In the final kick, Brazil's Neymar da Silva Santos pulled off a goal. Chile's Gonzalo Jara shot a missile that bounced off the goal post, away from the net.
With that, Brazil moves on to the quarterfinals and sends Chile packing.
