Brazil Win On Penalty Kicks

Brazil beat Chile 3-2 on penalty kicks and they have their goaltender (and the woodwork) to thank for it. Julio Cesar made two huge saves and then on Chile's last chance by Gonzalo Jara, the post made the final one.

It's a bit of redemption for Cesar who was scapegoated in part for Brazil's loss to Holland in South Africa four years ago when he and Felipe Melo collided on a long-range Wesley Sneijder goal.


But he can forget all about that now thanks to two saves and the post. Here's Jara's attempt, via Univision.

David Luiz, Marcelo, and Neymar (with his little dancing stutter steps you can see below) were the goalscorers for Brazil and only Charles Aranguiz and Marcelo Diaz came through for Chile.
