Brazil on Saturday kept their dream of World Cup glory alive by beating Chile 3-2 on penalties after a gruelling 1-1 draw to advance to the quarter-final stage of the quadrennial tournament. Neymar yet again inspired the hosts with his sublime first-half performance and by coolly converting from the penalty spot as Brazil's fifth and final penalty-taker. In addition, Brazil have their experienced goalkeeper Júlio César to thank for saving two spot kicks in the penalty shoot-out.
