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.

peru are looking very good. would love if they qualified, have so many talented players like pizarro, guerrero, farfan and vargas that never played at a world cup. don't know if pizarro will still be there by the end of the qualifiers though unfortunately Cry

7,000 police at the Peru-Paraguay match because of the murder during the Universitario-Alianza Lima game last week.

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.

Kaka never really seemed to reach the levels he got to with Milan since he moved to Madrid

Yea, he's been a disappointment mainly due to some horrific injuries.

Playing his best football since he joined Madrid at the moment though. Hope he can remain fit now.

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.
