Brazil squeezed through to the quarter-finals of the World Cup after coming within a whisker of going out against an accomplished Chile side.

Neymar's penalty in the shootout proved decisive when Chile's ex-Nottingham Forest, West Brom and Brighton defender Gonzalo Jara smashed the final spot-kick against the post.

World Cup highlights and match report: Holland 2-0 Chile

Holland edged out Group B rivals Chile in Sao Paulo thanks to a powerful headed goal from substitute Leroy Fer and a late killer strike on the counter-attack from another sub, Memphis Depay.

The 2-0 victory means the Dutch top their group with three wins out of three, whilst Chile qualify in second place and will now probably take on hosts Brazil in the Round of 16.

After each winning their first two group matches, both sides had already qualified for the last 16 ahead of this contest.

But they went into it with some incentive, knowing that clinching first place in the pool would see them avoid a meeting in the next round with the winners of Group A - likely to be hosts and tournament favourites Brazil, who were in action later on Monday.

Goal difference meant Holland needed only a draw to ensure they remained at the summit and it was the Chileans who showed more attacking intent in the early stages, albeit without truly threatening the Dutch goal.

Eduardo Vargas headed wide and Charles Aranguiz's dangerous ball was cleared by Ron Vlaar before Alexis Sanchez delivered a corner to the feet of Felipe Gutierrez, who sent his shot off-target.

Holland's first real attempt came in the 26th minute after Franciso Silva picked up a booking for a foul on Jeremain Lens, who was in the Oranje side as a replacement for the suspended Robin van Persie. Wesley Sneijder struck the resulting free-kick towards the near post but goalkeeper Claudio Bravo had it covered.

Daley Blind made a sliding challenge in the Holland area on Aranguiz, prompting some calls for a penalty from the stands, but play continued and the Dutch then went close as Stefan de Vrij sent Robben's wonderfully-delivered free-kick wide with a diving header.

Robben, one of the competition's stand-out performers to date, looked to be growing into the game and after another Chile penalty claim went unheeded - this time with Sanchez appealing he had been pushed by Dirk Kuyt - the Bayern Munich man surged from the halfway line to the box, evading a couple of challenges along the way, before sending a shot across the face of Bravo's goal.

Vargas was next to go down in the Dutch area following contact from Vlaar, with nothing being given once again, and Chile then passed up their best opportunity yet just prior to the interval as Gutierrez was presented with a free header from Marcelo Diaz's free-kick but diverted it the wrong side of the post.
