After more than 120 minutes of play, Brazil's World Cup run came down to penalty kicks on Saturday.

Remember, we've moved on to the knock-out round, so a win means a team moves on, a loss means they go home.

Like the game that preceded, the penalty shootout was heart-stopping and thrilling, with Brazilian goal keeper Julio Cesar stopping Chile's first two kicks, only to have Chile comeback and tie the penalty kicks at 2-2.

In the final kick, Brazil's Neymar da Silva Santos pulled off a goal. Chile's Gonzalo Jara shot a missile that bounced off the goal post, away from the net.

With that, Brazil moves on to the quarter finals and sends Chile packing.
