Brazil has officially become the first
country to qualify for next year's
World cup in Russia after the South
American nation defeated Paraguay
3-0 on Wednesday morning, and
then watched Peru's inflict a 2-1
victory over Uruguay.
The win over Paraguay, inspired by
country captain Neymar, was
Brazil's 13th match without a loss,
booking their place in Russia.
In Brazil's group, Colombia,
Uruguay and Chile occupy the
remaining three guaranteed World
Brazil even though they lost their
first game during qualifying, to
Chile, have not lost in the 13
subsequent matches. A run which
means Brazil sits on 33 points after
14 matches, with 10 wins, one loss
and three draws.
“When I look at my family — the
players — and when we talk to
the fans and see how happy they
are, that’s when you think ‘I’m
part of something very special,'”
Head coach, Tite said after Brazil’s
qualification was confirmed.
Congrats to them!
