Brazil qualifies for 2018 FIFA World Cup

Brazil qualifies for 2018 FIFA World Cup

Hours after scoring in the 3-0 victory over Paraguay which, with the help of Uruguay's defeat by Peru, helped the Selecao book their place at next summer's showpiece in Russian Federation, the Barcelona forward was pictured revelling in his country's success.

Philippe Coutinho gave both Brazil and Liverpool fans a reason to smile last night as he scored with a wonderful strike to help his national side to a 3-0 win over Paraguay.

Coach Tite, who has won seven straight games in qualifiers since he took over in September, had his best days at Corinthians.

Brazil top the South American world cup qualifying table with 33 off 14 games.

Bolivia took advantage of Lionel Messi's four-match ban and compounded Argentina's misery with a 2-0 win in Wednesday's early morning World Cup qualifying clash in La Paz.

They will have to do so without forward Lionel Messi, who has been banned for four worldwide matches for directing "insulting words" at an assistant referee during last Thursday's 1-0 win over Chile.

Argentina without their talisman Lionel Messi due to suspension are in fifth place and would have to qualify for Russian Federation via a playoff with an Oceania side.

Tite, however, has attempted to check the optimism that has accompanied Brazil's revival, insisting that he is not a miracle-worker.

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez put on a classy showing as two-time reigning South American champions Chile eased past rock-bottom Venezuela 3-1 in their CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying clash at the Estadio Monumental.

Brazil were forced into one change for the visit of Paraguay, with full-back Dani Alves suspended following last week's 4-1 win in Uruguay.

Messi's suspension left Argentina coach Edgardo Bauza forced to make a hasty reshuffle to his starting line-up, bringing in Atletico Madrid's Angel Correa in attack while leaving Manchester City's Sergio Aguero on the bench. "No matter when or where, Brazil will always be one of the favorites for titles".

Brazil have won all 3 home World Cup qualifiers against Paraguay this century though. Their defenders are solid at the back, and goal-machines like Neymar are finding the back of the net easily. If I'm not wrong the last two games they've had they've played well.
