David Luiz given Chile goal by FIFA

FIFA experts have awarded Brazil's goal in the round of 16 match against Chile to David Luiz.

Luiz claimed the goal in the 1-1 draw, which was finally settled by a penalty shootout in Brazil's favour, but television replays appeared to show that Thiago Silva's header had been deflected in by Chile defender Gonzalo Jara.

FIFA's technical study group has now studied the goal at all available angles -- there are 34 cameras in each stadium -- and are convinced former Chelsea defender Luiz, who has been signed by Paris Saint-Germain, had the last touch.

A FIFA spokeswoman said: "The technical study group has looked at this and the goal will remain awarded to David Luiz. They have studied it and say he definitely had the last touch."
