The knockout stage of the 20014 World Cup is here and to open you can watch Brazil vs. Chile live stream, on Saturday. In this phase the loser goes home and games are defined with overtime and penalty kicks, if needed. Let the games begin.
Brazil is under tremendous pressure to win the title at home, as the last time they had the chance, it was a national tragedy. Known as The Maracanazo (because the match was played at the famed Estádio do Maracanã in Rio), the infamous game — which Uruguay won — sent Brazil into a long depression that lasts to this day.
In the South American country, people eat, breathe, and sleep football (or soccer if you prefer). There is no way of putting it, the sport is definitely the national pastime, as in many other corners of the Earth.
On Saturday, those who watch Brazil vs. Chile live stream, will see if the World Cup host can get past a very strong Chilean team, who has proven that it is not afraid of any rival. A great classic in South America, the match will afford the opportunity to watch two of the best teams in the 2014 World Cup in action.
This one could go into overtime, since both squads are strong and Chile has a lot of speed in its wings. Brazil’s star, Neymar, is finally finding his groove and looks to increase his goal count at this game, but Chile is also hungry to get the chance to win a title for the first time.
Chile’s best result took place in the 1962 World Cup — which they hosted — and since then they haven’t been able to get close to claiming a title. The 2014 squad is one of the strongest ones they’ve had in many years and if they can continue to play at the level they have shown so far, Brazil should be concerned.
Fans who watch Brazil vs. Chile live stream are in for plenty of drama, as two of the top South American teams go head to head. If both teams are at their best, it should be an entertaining match for viewers.
Because of the draw, Brazil and Chile face off very early in the 2014 World Cup knockout round and it’s a shame that one of them has to go. However, nobody is complaining and the clash promises to be as exciting and dramatic as they come.
