Heurelho Gomes was on the bench as Brazil breezed into the quarter-finals of the World Cup on Monday night.

Inter Milan's Julio Cesar remained in goal as Brazil beat Chile 3-0 with goals from Juan, Luis Fabiano and Robinho at Ellis Park, Johannesburg.

We've a picture of Gomes celebrating Juan's opener with the rest of the Brazil bench above.

Ex-Spur Gilberto came on as a late substitute for Brazil and that made it 17 current or ex-Spurs players to feature in South Africa.

Only Gomes remains in the tournament of our current crop of 10 that travelled to South Africa - Benoit Assou-Ekotto, Sebastien Bassong (Cameroon), Wilson Palacios (Honduras), Giovani (Mexico) and five England players in Jermain Defoe, Peter Crouch, Ledley King, Michael Dawson and Aaron Lennon.

Of our ex-Spurs, Gilberto is still in the tournament alongside Kevin Prince Boateng (Ghana) and Pedro Mendes (Portugal).

Ex-Spurs to have also bowed out are Michael Carrick with England plus Young-Pyo Lee (South Korea), Didier Zokora (Ivory Coast) and Reto Ziegler (Switzerland).
