90mins

Ramires lashes a 25-yard shot far too high after Brazil had launched yet another quick counter-attack.

89mins

Brazil play out the final few seconds, conserving energy for Friday's quarter-final.

Chile deserve a consolation goal. 3-0 does not do them justice at all.

85mins

Dunga makes his final change with Robinho being replaced by Gilberto

85mins

A flowing Chile move ends with Jean Beausejour lashing a shot wide of the goal.

85mins

Fuentes heads Kleberson's cross away as the match peters out.

81mins

Dunga makes a second change with Kleberson coming on for Kaka.

A yellow card for Chile substitute Millar.

76mins

Brazil make a change with Nilmar coming on for Luis Fabiano.

76mins

Robinho breaks free down the right. He should probably pull the ball back for a colleague but elects to shot from a tight angle and Bravo makes a fingertip save.

74mins

The game is won now and both teams seem to nave accepted that fact and are already playing out time.

72mins

Chile keep pressing, Brazil continue to look dangerous on the break.

71mins

A silly yellow card for Ramires who clattered into Sanchez for no obvious reason. He'll miss the quarter-final now.

70mins

It's shaping up into a tasty last-eight line-up with most of the big guns there. A Brazil v Argentina meeting must be the likely final now though.

Ismael Fuentes is booked for pushing Luis Fabiano over.

59mins

Brazil are snuffing out any Chile attacks at their source. Their defending has been excellent this evening.

Chile can't get going in this half as they clear the corner. It's already looking like a Brazil v Holland quarter-final on Friday afternoon.

55mins

Lucio charges forward and finds Robinho who wins a corner.

54mins

Brazil appear to be content to soak up all the Chile pressure and hit their opponents on the break.

52mins

Tello's free-kick is easily dealt with by the Brazil defence though.

51mins

A chance for Chile as Gilberto Silva concedes a free-kick.

50mins

You get the feeling this could end up 4-0 to Brazil or 2-2 as Chile are now set up in such an attacking manner.

34mins

Maicon wins another corner for Brazil as play continues to swing from end to end.

30mins

Kaka is booked for a cynical trip on Arturo Erasmo Vidal.

29mins

Daniel Alves' corner leads to a goalmouth scramble with Brazil desperate for a penalty as Lucio tumbles to the ground. Howard Webb waves away the appeals though.

Maicon's curling free-kick eventually earns another corner for Brazil.

Match Report

Juan, Luis Fabiano and Robinho were all on target as Brazil cruised to a 3-0 victory against Chile as the five-time winners showed why they will be the team to beat at this World Cup yet again.

The all-South American affair was a lively match but Chile were undone by two goals in four minutes in the closing stages of what had previously been a tight but entertaining first half.

Brazil welcomed Kaka back into their side after the Real Madrid star had been suspended for the grim goalless draw with Portugal while Dunga also restored Robinho to the starting line-up.

Chile, praised for their attacking play in the group stage, were without three suspended players. Marco Estrada was sent off against Spain, while defenders Waldo Ponce and Gary Medel missed out after picking up two yellow cards in the tournament. However, Matias Fernandez and Carlos Carmona returned after bans.

The opening third of the game was a very open affair with both teams committed to attacking at every opportunity. However, Chile were finally undone in the 34th minute with a simple goal from a set-piece. Maicon's corner found Juan who had timed his leap to perfection as he thumped a header into the back of the net.

The goal seemed to knock the stuffing out of Chile, who had finished second behind Brazil in the South American qualification process for this World Cup.

Just four minutes after the opening goal, Brazil doubled their lead with a well-worked effort. Chile were caught out as Robinho and Kaka set up Luis Fabiano who took the ball in his stride before rounding Claudio Bravo and firing into an empty net.

There was a hint of offside but the Sevilla striker was actually level with the last Chile defender.

Chile tried their best to get back into the match after the interval but they were undone by a superb Brazil goal just before the hour mark.

Santos Ramires won possession on the halfway line, burst forward unchallenged and laid the ball off to Robinho who simply passed a shot beyond Bravo.

As Chile kept pressing, so Brazil continued to look dangerous on the break and Robinho was only denied by a smart Bravo save while, at the other end, Julio Cesar had to be at his best to keep out a late Humberto Suazo effort.

Suazo saw another attempt at a consolation goal hit the top of the crossbar as Marcelo Bielsa's side strived in vain to get back into the match.

Brazil will play the Netherlands in the first quarter-final on Friday afternoon.
