Viewers watching the dramatic Brazil and Chile World Cup clash on RTE’s Player were left frustrated as the action from Belo Horizonte was cut-off before the penalty shoot-out because of a technical error.

The host nation edged through against Chile after the sides finished 1-1 after 90 minutes, with goalkeeper Julio Cesar the hero during the penalty shoot-out as they triumphed 3-2.

However viewers online watching on RTE Player were unable to witness the grand finale in Brazil because of a technical error.

“Sincere apologies for the disruption to tonight's Brazil V Chile World Cup Game - this was due to an unforeseen technical error,” they tweeted from their official account.

During the extra-time, the RTE Player Twitter account became aware of the issues and offered advice for those who were experiencing streaming difficulties.

“If your #rteworldcup stream drops you may need to refresh your webpage (http://www.rte.ie/player/ie/live/10/ …) or reload your @RTEplayer app's live tab.”

Viewers were left bemused by the technical error which was resolved before the dramatic penalty shoot-out, with many leaving to watch the ending elsewhere.
