110' Chilean players seem to be at their wits' ends right now, as the replacement Rojas goes down after clashing with Willian, and Guitterez is down too following a knock from Ramires, who concedes a free kick.

108' Rojas replaces Medel for Chile, who has gone out injured. It seems to be a hamstring injury on his left leg.

107' Brazil get a corner kick, but it comes to nought.
