World Cup 2014: Brazil had to stay in - Gary Lineker

BBC Sport's Gary Lineker gives his view on Brazil's thrilling victory over Chile in the last 16 at the World Cup.

Lineker says the game, won by the tournament hosts on penalties, was one of the most exciting of the World Cup so far, with tough tackles and chances at both ends.

The former England striker believes Brazil's victory was "the best outcome for the World Cup", adding the whole country would have been in "mourning" had their team lost.
