Diego Maradona: "Chile deserved to go through"
Argentina legend Diego Maradona has insisted that Chile deserved to beat Brazil in their Round of 16 clash.
La Roja arguably edged the play, but were beaten on penalties, with Julio Cesar the hero.
“Brazil finished the game on their knees, without attacking,” insisted Maradona, as reported by Football Italia. “They did not deserve to reach penalties. I was hugely disappointed in them.
“Neymar had physical problems and disappeared in the second half. To be honest, Chile deserved to go through.”
