BRAZIL CRUISE INTO LAST EIGHT Plain sailing for Brazil, who see off the plucky Chileans to book a last-eight date with the Netherlands. First half goals from Juan and Luis Fabiano essentially killed the game off, while Robinho added a cool third as Chile began to throw the kitchen sink. Chile's attacking verve will be sorely missed, but it's Brazil who continue to impress without hitting top gear. Surely the Dutch will give Lucio and co. their first real test, right? It finishes, Brazil 3-0 Chile.
SAMBA STYLE It's a carnival atmosphere and a sea of yellow, here in Johannesburg. Brazil will take some beating, and their fans know it.
TIME ADDED ON Two minutes' added time in Soccer City. Ramires pings one over, before Valdivia follows suit at the other end.
FLYING THE ENGLISH FLAG Howard Webb's put in another sterling shift. He was quick to stop things boiling over just there between Millar and Gilberto, and will have done his World Cup final hopes no end of good.
SUBSTITUTION Gilberto - remember him? The former Spurs winger replaces the extremely effective Robinho.
CHILEAN SPIRIT Credit where credit's due. Chile could quite easily have hit the self-destruct button and rolled over after going three-down. They haven't, and they've actually made a decent game of things in the second half.
SUBSTITUTION You know Brazil are flying when Kleberson comes on. The former Manchester United flop replaces the disappointing Kaka.
BAR TICKLER Moments after Robinho has a goal rightly ruled out for offside, Humberto Suazo sends a tame volley into the ground and behind off the top of the crossbar.
SUBSTITUTION Nilmar trots on at the expense of Golden boot-chasing Luis Fabiano. What a luxury.
WAKEY WAKEY They've not forgotten about you, Julio. Humberto Suazo gets the better of Lucio in the box, but he doesn't quite catch it right and Cesar sticks out a hand to turn it away at his near post.
FINE SAVE Chile are caught napping as Robinho ghosts into the empty space on the right-hand side of the box, before firing in a fierce effort that Claudio Bravo does well to claw behind.
YELLOW CARD Yellow peril for Ramires, who catches Sanchez and collects the booking that will rule him out of the quarter-final clash with Holland.
SPOONER Michel Bastos breaks clear and cuts the ball back for Kaka, but he gets it all wrong and balloons a hopeless effort into the stands from the edge of the 'D'. Something's not quite right with the Real Madrid man.
YELLOW CARD Ismael Fuentes clatters into Fabiano and can have no complaints; a definite yellow.
STILL FIGHTING Jorge Valdivia pounces on a bouncing ball on the edge of the Brazil box and launches a fierce right-foot volley narrowly over Julio Cesar's bar. Kudos to Bielsa's men - they're hanging in, despite the scoreline.
FAIR PLAY Admirable from Alexis Sanchez, who could easily go down in the box under Gilberto's rash challenge. He stays on his feet, though, and Brazil get it away.
SUBSTITUTION Final throw of the Chile dice as Mauricio Isla makes way for Rodrigo Millar.
AUDACIOUS ALVES My word. That's a cracking effort from Dani Alves, who leathers one from 30-yards that dips just the wrong side of the left-hand upright. We'd have been talking about that for days, had that gone it.
GOAAAAL!!!! Surely no way back for Chile. Ramires does the hard work with a lung-busting, 30-yard run through the heart of the midfield. The Chileans leave ROBINHO all alone on the edge of the box and he rifles the ball beyond the hapless Claudio Bravo and into the bottom corner. Schoolboy defending, but that's some finish.
ROCK SOLID Keep ball from Chile as they look to plot a route through to Cesar's goal. So far so good for Dunga's near-impenetrable back four, though.
SLOPPY PASS Kaka makes a real mess of a promising Brazil counter. Chile left spaces at the back and, had he got that right, Robinho would have been in.
NO END PRODUCT Rodrigo Tello's already got far more involved than Mark Gonzalez did in the entire first 45. He whips in a couple of teasing left-wing crosses, but Juan gets the better of Suazo.
COOL AS A CUCUMBER Kaka and co. look happy just to sit back and pick the Chileans off on the counter. Chile, of course, will have to go for it at some point.
YELLOW CARD Arturo Vidal catches Kaka and earns a deserved booking for his efforts. They really are volatile at times, the Chileans.
SECOND HALF Up and running again in Soccer City. Chile's Mark Gonzalez and defender Pablo Contreras have been replaced by winger Rodrigo Tello and striker Jorge Valdivia. All or nothing stuff.
HALF TIME Brazil have one foot in the door of the last eight and a mouthwatering showdown with the Dutch. Chile held their own for the first thirty minutes, but two goals in three minutes - Juan's towering header from a precise corner and a third goal of the tournament for Luis Fabiano - and Marcelo Bielsa's side have it all to do. Only the most monumental of comebacks can stop Dunga's lot. HT: a comprehensive 2-0.
DELUSIONS OF CARLOS Michel Bastos gets into a forward position for the first time of the evening, but his Roberto Carlos-inspired strike is wayward at best.
RED HOT CHILE CHALLENGE Carmona escapes with a just a talking to after catching his man late. The Chileans can't afford to go in like that as they did against Spain last week.
GOAAAAL!!!! Mountain to climb for the Chileans. Brazil break at blistering speed as Robinho charges down the left and finds Kaka. LUIS FABIANO's run is timed to perfection and he rounds the onrushing stopper, before sliding the ball into the empty net. Great decision from the linesman, incidentally, as Fabiano was definitely 'on'.
NOTHING GIVEN Intricate stuff from the Chileans on the edge of the Brazil area, but Beausejour miscontrols before slumping to the deck. Howard Webb rightly waves him to his feet. He was looking for that.
GOAAAAL!!!!! Brazil's 'European' approach in a nutshell. Chile concede a corner and up pops towering centre back JUAN to thump Maicon's pinpoint delivery into the top right-hand corner. Nothing the keeper could do about that.
BRAZILIAN WALL Humberto Suazo steps up to the plate and wellies the resulting free kick straight at the wall. Nothing but power behind that effort.
YELLOW CARD Kaka collects the game's first booking for a crude trip, 30-yards from goal. He's only just come back from suspension, albeit for a very harsh sending off, but should nevertheless curb his temper.
PING PONG Claudio Bravo's caught in no man's land as Maicon bends the ensuing corner into the mixer. Lucio goes down in the box and Juan, off balance, fires wide.
DEADBALL DANGER Howard Webb calls play back after Brazil take a free kick a tad too quickly. Take two, then, and Maicon's in-swinging effort is cleared only as far as Lucio, whose wicked left-wing cross earns a corner.
WASTED A really promising Chile attack ends in disappointment as Alexis Sanchez selfishly goes for goal instead of sliding a simple ball into the channel for the unmarked Humberto Suazo. That's a real let off for the Samba boys.
GOOD HUSTLE Marcelo Bielsa has undoubtedly urged his players to hustle, harry and basically get right on the Brazilians' backs. They're doing just that, and Robinho and Kaka are having little joy in the hole.
DENIED Robinho takes his marker out of the game with one swift movement inside. He finds Dani Alves, but the ball's cut out just as Luis Fabiano had peeled away into space.
SETTLED Chile came out of the blocks flying, but it's Brazil who've subsequently stamped their authority on the game. That said, the Selecao have yet to find any real rhythm in what's a very congested midfield.
ROUTINE STOP The Chilean defenders back off and invite the run of Ramires, who needs no invitation and leathers a swerving effort straight at Claudio Bravo from 20-yards.
CLEVER MOVEMENT Humberto Suazo ghosts in between the static Michel Bastos and Lucio and controls the ball brilliantly with his chest. He's in a rush, though, and loops one into the arms of Julio Cesar.
TURNING THE SCREW Brazil are growing in confidence, but they're being forced to play through the middle. A loose ball falls kindly for Kaka, who drills a hopeful punt wide of the keeper's right-hand post.
GILBERTO ROCKET Gilberto Silva lines up a dipping shot from the edge of the area and draws a fine stop from Claudio Bravo, who flies to his left to claw the ball behind.
PRESSURE Maicon trots into Chile's half and is immediately faced with two white shirts. He wins a jammy corner, which is headed behind for another. Dani Alves second effort doesn't trouble the Chileans.
SCUFFED WIDE Dani Alves sprays a clever ball into the Chile box where Luis Fabiano profits on a slip by the defender. It's on his weaker right foot, though, and the Brazil no.9 drags the ball well wide.
HIGH LINE This is really bold stuff from the Chileans, who are playing with a very high line. Mark Gonzalez doesn't have the legs to get on the end of a long ball from midfield, but the early signs are good for Bielsa's fearless troops.
ENCOURAGEMENT Chile have made a very bright start and have already won the game's first corner. Suazo plays it short, but Sanchez's thunderbolt is charged down.
WE'RE OFF The ball's rolling at the Soccer City Stadium, with Chile kicking from right to left.
THE ANTHEMS A real carnival feel to Brazil's anthem; Chile's is equally upbeat. Kick-off in Johannesburg is just round the corner...
HERE THEY COME The teams are out at the Soccer City Stadium and the noise of the ever-present vuvuzelas is deafening. Remember, the Netherlands lie in wait for tonight's winner.
ENGLISH HOPES English referee Howard Webb, ably assisted by fellow Englishmen Darren Cann and Michael Mullarkey, will be hoping to boost his chances of presiding over the World Cup final with another solid shift in Johannesburg. The 38-year-old impressed in his handling of Spain's defeat to Switzerland and Thursday's barnstorming Group F clash between Slovakia and Italy.
THE TEAMS ARE IN Kaka returns to Dunga's side, but there's no place for the injured Elano. Felipe Melo and Julio Baptista also miss out through injury, so in come Dani Alves and Ramires. Chile's Pablo Contreras, Ismael Fuentes and Carlos Carmona fill in for suspended trio Marcos Estrada, Waldo Ponce and Gary Medel, while Humberto Suazo is preferred in attack to Jorge Valdivia.
PREDICTION Chile breathed life into an uninspiring first week of World Cup action with their eye-catching brand of attacking football, which ultimately proved to be their downfall a week later against European champions Spain in the Group H finale. Their vulnerable and, indeed, self-destructive side won't have gone unnoticed by the Brazilians, who should just have the edge on their South American counterparts. Expect bags of entertainment: Brazil 4-2 Chile.
ONE TO WATCH It's safe to say Alexis Sanchez's stock will have risen in the last couple of weeks. The Udinese flair player boasts fantastic pace and equally impressive ball skills, and will be key to La Roja's attempts to breakdown the Selecao's uncharacteristically stubborn back four.
STAR MAN The fact that centre back Lucio has arguably been Brazil's shining light says a lot about Dunga's 'European' set-up. The Inter man's been rock-solid in all of Brazil's group encounters, and it will be interesting to see if and how he deals with Chile's exceptionally attack-minded approach.
EARLY TEAM NEWS Kaka returns to the fold after missing the bore-draw against Portugal through suspension. Elano and Robinho will almost certainly start, but there are fitness concerns surrounding Felipe Melo (ankle) and Julio Baptista (knee). Chile, meanwhile, will be ravaged by suspensions after hitting the self-destruct button in defeat to Group H winners Spain. Marcos Estrada, Waldo Ponce and Gary Medel all miss out, leaving coach Marcelo Bielsa with limited defensive options.
PREVIEW Tournament favourites Brazil lock horns with fellow South American outfit Chile for a place in the last eight of the World Cup and the right to face either the Netherlands or Slovakia. As is so often the case with Brazil in major competitions, they seem to raise their game when it matters most, and they'll have to do just that against one of the most exciting sides to have graced South African soil.
