  1. Post update

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    Thanks for joining me this afternoon: Your texts, tweets and social media posts were much appreciated.

    I'm going to throw you over to Tom Rostance, who is helming our live text commentary on today's Euro 2016 qualifiers. Northern Ireland, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland are all in action - so head over there now.

    From me, it's goodbye.

  2. Post update

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    There wasn't time to substitute Neymar in the end, by the way.

    He wasn't at his best, and Brazil were certainly not at their most attractive. But Dunga has restored their self-respect after an awful end to their World Cup. They're in decent shape for the Copa America.

    Chile play an energetic, high-temp game, but need to be better at creating chances with their possession.

  3. FULL-TIME

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    Brazil secure an eighth successive win. It was scrappy, it was untidy, and I'm not entirely sure it was deserved. By substitute Roberto Firmino pressed his claims for a starting spot with a very nicely-taken second-half winner.

  4. Post update

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    Neymar

    We're well into three minutes of stoppage time. Neymar, trying to salvage an afternoon of personal frustration, wins a free-kick just as Dunga is preparing to substitute him. The Brazil forward stays on the pitch to take the free-kick - it wouldn't be fair to take him off at that point - and he whizzes a shot that bends away at the last moment.

  5. Post update

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    Back to the action: Brazil's Robinho goes for a ridiculously spectacular volley from an impossible angle, and sends the ball squirting off in the wrong direction. Willian follows up by blasting a shot into row 13.

  6. Post update

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    We've got a hold-up now, caused by a handful of pitch invaders. The stewards are on quickly to deal with it, though.

  8. Post update

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    Brazil keeper Jefferson has been pretty much untroubled this afternoon, but he shows his concentration levels are still high by getting down to push aside Matias Fernandez's 25-yard free-kick. It looks as though the ball is bending just outside the post - but better to be safe than sorry.

  9. Post update

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    Neymar

    It hasn't been Neymar's day, but he's still trying. The Brazil forward runs into a phalanx of Chile defenders on the edge of the penalty area, and the ball pings out to Robinho, who volleys well wide.

    Chile's Mark Gonzalez, who had a brief stint at Liverpool just under a decade ago, is on for Eugenio Mena.

  10. Post update

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    Roberto Firmino has a chance for a second - and scuffs it. Willian and Danilo combine well down the right to find the Hoffenheim striker on the edge of the penalty area, but the finish is untidy and wide.

    There's another Chile change, with Eduardo Vargas replacing Arturo Vidal - and so we now have two QPR loanees on the pitch.

  12. Post update

    Brazil 1-0 Chile

    What a strange game football is. Chile had all that possession, and didn't make any clear chances out of it. Now they are on course for a third defeat in four matches. This is not ideal preparation for the Copa America, which they will host in June.

    Brazil have brought on Chelsea's left-back Filipe Luis in place of Marcelo. The Arsenal fans in the crowd at the Emirates Stadium respond with some hearty booing.

  13. GOAL

    Brazil 1-0 Chile (Roberto Firmino)

    Firmino

    Brazil have been second best today - but they're in front thanks to one of their substitutes. Danilo plays a pass through the centre of Chile's defence, and Hoffenheim's Roberto Firmino times the run perfectly to go round Claudio Bravo and score.

    Chile respond by bringing on Matias Fernandez for Rodrigo Millar. Jorge Sampaoli's side have 17 minutes to deny Brazil an eighth straight win.

  15. Post update

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Neymar

    Roberto Firmino has a great chance to set-up a Brazil counter-attack - and wastes it by firing an over-hit pass that leaves Neymar sliding on to his backside as the ball whizzes out of play by the technical areas. Neymar, right now, may be wishing he'd phoned in sick today.

  16. Post update

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    For all Chile's possession, they're being restricted to long-range efforts from free-kicks. Alexis Sanchez has another go from a good 30 yards this time, complete with fast bowler's run-up, but keeper Jefferson holds on.

  17. Post update

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Miranda

    Miranda gets caught cold by Alexis Sanchez, who is motoring towards the penalty area when he is dragged back by the Brazil centre-half. Miranda is booked. Sanchez waves an imaginary card almost before he hits the ground. For goodness sake, man, it's a friendly.

    Sanchez takes the free-kick himself, and lifts it over the bar.

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Four substitutions at the Emirates for Brazil - and that means a return to an English football pitch for Robinho. The former Manchester City forward, currently playing for Santos, replaces Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who did not an awful lot in his hour on the pitch.

    Hoffenheim forward Roberto Firmino is on for Luiz Adriano, Elias has replaced Souza, and Willian has taken Douglas Costa's place.

    The sun's out now. It's making me feel a lot cheerier.

  20. Post update

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Isla

    Chile are on top in this game, at least in terms of possession, and they have a penalty shout rejected as Mauricio Isla darts into the penalty and goes to ground under Marcelo's challenge. There is, perhaps, a bit of arm-wrestling, but it's hard to tell who is the worst offender. Martin Atkinson refuses the Chilean appeals.

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    A nice bit of build-up from Chile. Arturo Vidal plays Mauricio Isla into space down the right, and the QPR loanee delivers a sharp ball in that Thiago Silva reacts well to clear.

  23. Post update

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Hernandez

    Pablo Hernandez makes progress into the Brazil penalty area and Fernandinho, in trying to shepherd the Chile forward out of play, gets into a tangle that leaves him in danger of conceding a penalty. Martin Atkinson is probably right not to give it. It's a messy challenge, though, in what is becoming a bit of a messy match.

  24. Post update

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Thiago Silva, who is on a booking, goes in aggressively with a challenge on Eugenio Mena. Martin Atkinson gives the free-kick and nothing more. The referee might have a job on his hands to keep this 11-a-side.

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Medel

    Gary Medel's stamp on Neymar - unpunished by Martin Atkinson - is the big talking point of a half that was light on chances. Medel, to my mind, is fortunate that he is still on the pitch.

    Chile, though, have been the better side. Jorge Sampaoli's pressing game is giving Brazil little time to settle on the ball. Can they maintain it? If so, Chile would be my pick to win the game.

    Anyway, time for some more of your texts and tweets.

  36. HALF-TIME

    Well, that was a feisty first half.

  37. Post update

    Neymar hasn't been afraid to get stuck in during this first half, and referee Martin Atkinson's patience has finally snapped. The Barcelona man commits one foul too many by tripping Gonzalo Jara needlessly, and gets a booking.

  38. Post update

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Hernandez

    Chile are enjoying plenty of possession in the closing moments of the half. They're getting plenty of time to pass the ball around at the back, without so far finding the right pass to break down Brazil's defence.

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Alexis Sanchez has had a busy old season with Arsenal, playing 3,326 minutes for them to date. He started on the bench against Iran in Austria on Thursday, and the energy he's showing suggests that the breather has benefited him.

    Chile playing some nice stuff around the edge of Brazil's penalty area. Dunga's defence, though, is holding firm. I can see why they've conceded only two goals in their last seven matches.

  46. Post update

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Sanchez

    Better from Chile. Alexis Sanchez starts a counter-attack with a superb turn, combining then with Mauricio Isla down the right to work a cross - from which Rodrigo Millar and Charles Aranguiz have shots blocked.

  47. CLOSE!

    Brazil 0-0 Chile

    Neymar swings in a lovely free-kick from the left for Brazil, and almost finds a breakthrough. Souza and Miranda both go for it but can't quite get a connection, and it drifts beyond keeper Claudio Bravo's post by centimetres. There must be a touch from a Chile player, because a corner is the result, but nothing comes of it.

    Neymar seems fine after his clash with Miiko Albornoz a few moments or so ago, and is zipping around at full pelt again. Albornoz goes in with another poorly-timed lunge at Brazil's number 10, and receives the game's first yellow card.

    Chile, as usual, are playing a high-intensity, high-pressing game here. Alexis Sanchez has twiced tried to close down Jefferson on back passes. You wouldn't think this was a friendly.

    Chile have been inconsistent since bowing out of the World Cup to the hosts last June. Jorge Sampaoli's side were surprisingly beaten 2-0 by Iran in Austria on Thursday.

    Brazil v Chile (15:00 BST)

    Dunga has remodelled Brazil since their World Cup humiliation. Strikers Jo and Fred have been moved out, as has goalkeeper Julio Cesar. Shakhtar Donetsk striker Luiz Adriano, the top scorer in this season's Champions League, has established himself in the attack. Atletico Madrid's Miranda has taken his chance in central defence. Botafogo's Jefferson is the new keeper.

    Some players remain: Fernandinho, Ramires and Luiz Gustavo have been kept on. But the new-look Brazil look to be getting back to their best, beating France 3-1 in a Paris friendly on Thursday.

  67. Post update

    Dunga

    Luiz Felipe Scolari paid for that World Cup embarrassment with his job. For a new boss, Brazil turned to an old boss. Dunga was criticised heavily for Brazil's uninspiring displays at the 2010 World Cup. But since his return, they have picked up form, winning seven out of seven friendlies. Today they face Chile again - in north London.
