Twitter reacts to Chelsea star Oscar’s performance for Brazil against Chile

Chelsea midfielder Oscar started for Brazil against Chile, but once again his performance was disappointing.

On Saturday, Brazil secured their place in the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup by getting the better of Chile in the last 16.

The encounter between the two South American teams at the Estadio Mineirao in Belo Horizonte was expected to be a very feisty and entertaining affair, and it proved as such.

David Luiz, who moved from Chelsea to Paris Saint-Germain for a world-record transfer fee of £50 million before the World Cup, gave the Selecao the lead in the 18th minute.

However, Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal, Liverpool and Juventus this summer, restored parity just past the half-hour mark.

The match eventually went to penalties, which Brazil won 3-2 to progress to the last eight.

There were a number of Chelsea players on the pitch, but one of them failed to spark: Oscar.

The 22-year-old had a rather quiet game against Chile and was substituted in the 105th minute in favour of his Blues teammate Willian.

Oscar did show his creativity on occasions, but he lacked consistency yet again. The former Internacional youngster, who joined Chelsea in the summer of 2012, has yet to really impose himself on the World Cup.

Football fans around the world were watching the match, and here is what they made of the performance of Oscar.
