Brazil vs. Chile: Player ratings
Brazil 1-1 Chile
[4-3 on penalties]
David Luiz [18’], Alexis Sánchez [32’]
Estádio Governador Magalhães Pinto
Júlio César - 8.5 - Made an outstanding save to deny Charles Aránguiz in the second half and kept out both Mauricio Pinilla and Alexis Sánchez in the shoot out. The official man of the match.
Daniel Alves - 7 - Was engaged in a well-fought battle with Eugenio Mena throughout the contest. More disciplined defensively than in previous matches.
Thiago Silva - 7.5 - Had a hard task knowing who to mark without an obvious direct opponent, but defended admirably when called upon.
David Luiz - 7 - Solid defensively and had a key role in the opening goal, but sometimes unnecessarily wayward in possession.
Marcelo - 7 - Stayed deeper than in previous matches and edged his duel with Mauricio Isla.
Luiz Gustavo - 7 - Pressed high up to good effect and did his usual solid defensive work, but was occasionally over-run. Yellow card rules him out of the Quarter-finals.
Fernandinho - 6 - Was supposed to give Luiz Gustavo extra protection, but too often caught between positions and didn't block out Aránguiz’ runs.
Oscar - 6.5 - Reasonably quiet throughout, but pressed well and made some good long passes.
Neymar - 7 - Excellent in the first half, but on the fringes thereafter as Brazil got pressed back. Scored a decisive penalty.
Hulk - 6 - At fault for the equaliser, but had a goal controversially ruled out in the second half. Most effective in extra time.
Fred - 6 - Pressed quite well, but never looked likely to score, despite physical advantage.
Jô - 6.5 - An occasional nuisance and an inch away from netting.
Ramires - 6.5 - Brought energy and discipline to an over-stretched midfielder.
Willian - N/A - Missed in the shoot-out.
