Qualification for Brazil 2014 got underway last night. 9 teams with 4.5 qualifying. No Brazil in the league gives a great chance to the likes of Peru to push on from their excellent Copa.

Sabella got off to a great start with a 4-1 home win over Chile. Captain Messi got on the score sheet as well as another hat trick for Gonzalo Higuain.

Peru 2-0 Paraguay
Ecuador 2-0 Venezuela
Uruguay 4-2 Bolivia (A brace for Lugano)


Neymar scored the only goal in a 1-0 friendly win against Costa Rica.



Gruelling 16 game qualifying campaign, very hard to call who'll go through besides Argies and Urugauy. I think Chile might struggle. Loads of points will be dropped away from home on poor pitches with hostile atmospheres up in the clouds.


Repeat of the Copa final on the 11th.

Goals for 2 of my fav south americans I see - Lugano and Higuain Clap
 
You see any of the games/goals Tribal? Would be interesting to see how Sabella has changed the team/tactics and if he can get them playing as a team, if he does this I think they would have to be favourites for 2014

Saw the Argentina game. They weren't overly convincing. Decent performance but nothing special, scoreline was a little flattering. I can still see them struggling to break down teams that sit back against them.

One massive positive was the relationship between the 2 Real lads and Messi in attack. Also a lad called Brana(Estudientes) who is apparently a favourite of Sabella played pretty well in the holding midfield role.

Still difficult to see where they are going and what way they'll play. No Aguero, Lavezzi, Pastore, Masch in that team last night.

Good result to start but Batista won his first game in charge 4-1 against Spain and that didn't end well.

Fla-Flu derby ended 3-2 to Flamengo tonight.
Gives them a chance of the title still, looks like it has fallen away from Fluminese though.

Vasco de Gama who are top for the next 45 minutes lost 3-0.

Corinthians will be a point ahead when their game finishes. 3-0 up at HT.

Santos way down in mid table because they already have a place in next seasons Copa Libertadores as reigning champions.


Boca on course for the Apuerta title.
River Plate second in the 'B'.

Argentina lost 1-0 to Venezuela last night. I knew there was a reason not to be convinced by Sabella's first game.

Chile won 4-2 against Peru the usual all attack no defence by the looks of it.

Forlan scored a last minute equaliser in the Copa final repeat.

Falcao came off the bench to score the winner for Colombia in Bolivia.


Ronaldinho scored a beauty in Brazil's 2-1 win against Mexico. Dani Alves got sent off in the first half. Marcelo's goal was a peach as well.

Neymar still having a say in the title race. Scored in Santos' win against Vasco who were top. That's his 7th goal in 4 games.


5 games to play and the table looks like this.


Corinthians   58
Vasco de Gama 58
Fluminese     56
Botafogo      55
Flamengo      55

Games between the above 5 before the last day are...
Vasco v Botafogo
Flu v Vasco


Then on the last day

Corinthians v Palmeiras(Derby Paulista)
Botafogo v Fluminese(a Rio derby)
Vasco de Gama v Flamnego(another Rio derby)

Has the potential to be the greatest end to any season ever.

Santos v Sao Paulo just another little extra on the last day.

Neymar signs contract until 2014. Hopefully he stays another couple of years at least. I think it would help him going over to Europe when he's slightly more mature. Someone will have to throw Santos a fook load of money to get him this summer.

From today's comments it looks like Neymar is keeping to his word and staying at Santos until the 2014 World Cup when his contract ends. Good news for Brazilian football.

Talk of Nilmar coming back and with Jadson already back the attacking quality is looking good.



Copa Libertadores starts on Tuesday with 12 teams fighting for the last 6 group stage spots.

Yeah I actually think he's going to stay now. As long as Santos can keep financial backing he will be there until the WC. If Brazil win the WC he's gonna cost a lot of money. Possibly on the Ronaldo scale.

Played his last game a few days ago. Heard it was an emotional farewell, one of their most influential players ever.

Ronaldinho's 90th minute goal sent Flamengo through to the Libertadores group stage.

Luxemburgo was then sacked straight after the game.

Dinho was in sensational form by all accounts.


Nice send off for Martin Palermo from Boca as well. They walked to the Apuerta title.

Without doubt. IMO He would have been in Top Gun with Ronaldo and Messi right now. He was a sure thing to win World Player of the year, the year after Ronaldinho won it.

Read two match reports, both just mentioned him in  relation to poor club form and that he was subbed after an hour. On the plus side Papacy scored the winner for them!

He was poor to be honest. When Ganso came on Brazil looked far better. Can't see Dinho being in any Brazil squads after London 2012.

Great game for a friendly though the Bosnians were well up for it. Their back four were excellent including Papac.

Pekerman's first game in charge for colombia. Could have been a few down early. Peanut Hernandez missed a few sitters.Really grew as the game went on. Second goal is  like a training ground perfection class. about 25 passes and the Cuadrado the full back knocks it in. This link doesn't do it justice. 

They/We have the players. Really desperately want them to qualify. If they do , I think they will do well.

Good wee piece here on Santos that I just seen on the bbc website while looking last nights blades goals. Link here if anyone wants to read some of the "interesting" comments in reply to the article http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/timvickery/2012/04/the_littlest_big_club_in_south.html" rel="nofollow - http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/timvickery/2012/04/the_littlest_big_club_in_south.html  
 

Santos continue to punch above their weight

If the Titanic was too big to sink, then Santos FC would be too small to shake the world - flawed logic on both counts.

On 14 April, 1912 - the very day the Titanic hit an iceberg which caused it to sink - Santos were founded, beginning their rise to become one of the most remarkable clubs in football history.

http://www.santosfc.com.br/capa.asp" rel="nofollow - - Santos are the reigning champions of South America - a title that Corinthians, Sao Paulo's biggest club, are still waiting to win.

Corinthians are the current domestic champions and are a major force. Sao Paulo FC have been Brazil's most consistent club over recent times and another local giant, Palmeiras, have a glorious history of their own.

But, internationally, Santos are probably more famous and glamorous than them all, which is an extraordinary achievement.

The man most responsible for this state of affairs is Pele, who played for the club between 1956 and 1974.

One of football's happy accidents is that the 15-year-old Pele was introduced into a side that already was sensational, with top-class experienced players around him to guide the way.

Neymar is part of Santos' new batch of youngsters coming through the club. Photo: Getty

With such solid foundations, it was not long before the team was built around him.
Santos, Pele and a wonderful supporting cast deserve a mention in any debate about the greatest club side of all time.

Their claims would be greater still had they not opted against playing in the Copa Libertadores, South America's Champions League, after 1965.

They won the tournament in 1962 and 1963, and both times went on to win what was then considered the world title, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wvh9aAdhAao" rel="nofollow - - The outstanding Neymar is the star of the current side, supported by playmaker Paulo Henrique Ganso.

And now, in Luis Alvaro Ribeiro, they also have an interesting and ambitious club president. Ribeiro likes to think big.

Many thought that Neymar would already have been sold by now. Instead Ribeiro has brought enough sponsors on board to ensure that the player is already earning European-style wages, and is under contract until 2014.

"But," says Ribeiro, "as a dreamer, I like to imagine that in 2014 Neymar will be Olympic champion and will have won a World Cup in Brazil, so he will be fully satisfied and will stay longer."

The problem is this - even if Ribeiro's predictions come true they will not be enough for Neymar to feel entirely satisfied from a professional point of view.

This is no longer Pele's time. In terms of the level of the game, the World Cup is no longer a reference. It has lost out to Europe's Champions League.

The more stubborn nationalistic South Americans complain that the http://www.uefa.com/uefachampionsleague/index.html" rel="nofollow - http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/16234168" rel="nofollow -

COPA LIBERTADORES LAST 16

Fluminense (Bra) vs Internacional (Bra)

Union Espanola (Chi) vs Boca Juniors (Arg)

Universidad de Chile (Chi) vs Deportivo Quito (Ecu)

Libertad (Par) vs Cruz Azul (Mex)

Corinthians (Bra) vs Emelec (Ecu)

Lanus (Arg) vs Vasco (Bra)

Santos (Bra) vs Bolivar (Bol)

Velez Sarsfield (Arg) vs Atletico Nacional (Col)




Hope Santos, Atletico Nacional or Universidad de Chile win it. Santos look a class above everyone else from the little I've seen. But it's still an extremely open competition, around 10 teams probably think they have a good chance of winning it.

2 goals for Neymar today in the Paulista final, on top of his hat trick in the San-Sao semi final match. Just 50 goals to catch Messi with about 50 games to play.

Nacional still in (just) the libertadores  is good to see from a Colombian perspective... though winning at Velez might be a tall order but they are well suited to trying to sneak a goal on the counter if Velez press them. I see La U de Chile got a good trimming by Quito . Nacional beat them well in the group in Medellin . Hard to call a winner overall I think

Hopeful the team I married into, America de Cali, will be back in the big time soon. They are the best supported side in Colombia - crowds of 30/40k even though they are in 'la B'.

They have finally gotten off the Clinton list ( CIA list as an organisation financed by terrroism) so they have a great chance of getting the financial side of things sorted too. Hopefully get some new sponsors and a decent kit deal.

You seem to know your stuff Tribal. Originally from Galway myself. Are you a general follower of South American football or do you have a team you follow ?

Just try and keep up as best I can with the top level of football especially Brazil.

Disappointed to see Atletico and Dorlan Pabon go out last night. Was always a tough task when they lost the first leg.

Surprised La U got trounced by Quito after they were so brilliant last season. The loss of Vargas must have taken a bit out of them.

All the other games are really in the balance. Hope Santos win tomorrow night, and they should.

Pity to see Nacional get knocked out, have a soft spot for them since I used to live near their stadium in Medellin and went to see them every other week, they've some of the most passionate supporters I've ever come across. I was lucky to see Pabon score a few crackers there, rumours are he could be on his way to Udinese for 8m.
Some vintage Riquelme tonight for Boca in their return against Union Española, he´s set up 2 goals already..

Business end of the Libertadores tonight.

01:50   Vasco -v- Corinthians

Tomorrow
23:45   Boca Juniors -v- Fluminense

Couldn't call a winner in any tie except maybe La U to go through only because I don't have a clue who Libertad are.

Looks like ESPN will have Brazilian football this season. First day of the championship was yesterday.


Jadson just scored a nice goal for Sao Paolo against Botafogo. It's delayed coverage. Worth a watch if the final scoreline is to go by.

Probably about 20,000 although they might as well be at home the stands are so far from the pitch.

Now I've seen the stands probably not 20,000 unless they are all over on the near side. 17,000 was their avg last season.

Ronaldinho's brother and agent walked into the Flamengo club shop yesterday, gathered 40 items and announced to the shop if Flamengo aren't going to pay my brother I'm not paying either.

He managed to get 25 free jerseys out of it.

91st minute goal for Boca away to Flu to send them into the semis.

Fluminense players are in tears, there's no extra time in SA, 30 seconds from penos.

SAO PAULO (AP) -The Copa Libertadores semifinals begin this week with defending champion Santos of Brazil and six-time winner Boca Juniors of Argentina favorites to book a spot in the finals of Latin America's most important club competition.

Santos, led by young sensation Neymar, will face Brazilian rival Corinthians on Wednesday. Boca Juniors, commanded by veteran playmaker Juan Roman Riquelme, will play against Universidad de Chile a day later.

The tradition and the recent success of Santos and Boca Juniors in the competition give them an edge over their rivals entering the semifinals, even though Corinthians and Universidad de Chile had stronger campaigns this year.

Santos won its third title last year, while Boca Juniors won four of its six trophies in the last 12 years. The 2003 title came in a final against Santos.

Santos will host the first leg against Corinthians at the Vila Belmiro stadium in Santos, while Boca Juniors will host Universidad de Chile on Thursday at the La Bombonera in Buenos Aires.

"Without a doubt (Boca Juniors) is one of the best teams in South America,'' Universidad de Chile coach Jorge Sampaoli said. "If they are allowed to control possession they will certainly win the match. They have very fast and outstanding players up front. It would be extremely glorious to be able to beat them at the La Bombonera.''

Universidad de Chile has never won the Copa Libertadores. It will be trying to reach the final for the first time, and give Chile its first ever title. A Chilean club hasn't reached the final since Cobreloa did it in 1981 and 1982.

Like Universidad de Chile, Corinthians also hasn't won the Copa Libertadores. The club is the defending Brazilian champion but it has never had much success internationally. It won the inaugural FIFA Club World Cup in 2000, when it was invited as the host team, but never thrived much outside of Brazil.

"This is the team's greatest moment, to be in contention in the Copa Libertadores,'' Corinthians coach Tite said. "Our focus is on these next two matches, they will be huge.''

Corinthians has been resting some of its regular starters in the Brazilian league, and it's last in the 20-team standings after losing three of its first four matches.

"We have to prioritize one of the competitions, we can't win all of them,'' Tite said.

Santos also is struggling in the national league, but on Wednesday it can count on the return of Neymar, who has been away with the Brazil national team.

"Neymar's return will be a huge addition to the team in the match against Corinthians,'' Santos midfielder Henrique said. "He is our top player, makes a difference.''

Boca Juniors leads the Clausura tournament in Argentina and picked up momentum in the Copa Libertadores after a difficult start in the competition. It eliminated Union Espanola 5-3 on aggregate in the round of 16 and Fluminense 2-1 in the quarterfinals.

Santos got past Bolivar 9-2 in the round of 16 after an 8-0 routing in the second leg, then eliminated Argentina's Velez Sarsfield on penalties in the quarterfinals.

Boca Juniors and Santos played in the 2003 Copa Libertadores final, when the Argentine club came out on top after winning 2-0 at home and 3-1 in Brazil. Santos was led by striker Robinho and playmaker Diego, while Riquelme was Boca Juniors' outstanding player.

Sabella got off to a great start with a 4-1 home win over Chile. Captain Messi got on the score sheet as well as another hat trick for Gonzalo Higuain.

Apparently Argentinos Juniors -v- All Boys clasico has finished 9-7.

And I mean 9 men against 7 men, not goals. Must have been some scrap.

In case you were in any doubt, the current little number 10 from Argentina is the best since the other little number 10 from Argentina!! The Brazil number 10 isnt bad either! Oh yes, and Argentina need a goalie!
