Brazil and Chile 1-1 at halftime at World Cup

BELO HORIZONTE, Brazil (AP) - Brazil and Chile were even at 1-1 at halftime in the second round of the World Cup following goals by David Luiz and Alexis Sanchez.

Brazil took the lead in the 18th minute after Thiago Silva deflected Neymar's corner kick toward the far post. Luiz was given the goal but Chile defender Gonzalo Jara may have touched the ball before it went in.

Chile equalized in the 32nd after Eduardo Vargas intercepted Hulk's pass and found Sanchez in the area. The Barcelona striker scored from the right side of the penalty area with a shot toward the far post.

Brazil has reached the quarterfinals at the last five World Cups. Chile has not advanced past the second round since it hosted the 1962 tournament.
