Neymar's gorgeous goal for Brazil last night had just one tiny flaw

Brazil defender Marquinhos has praised the team's collective spirit during the World Cup qualifiers.

The most popular choice was Corinthians coach Tite, who was overlooked after the 2014 World Cup debacle. But that didn't stop the coach from giving the star the captaincy band for the game, a position Tite usually rotates.

Marcelo then prodded in Brazil's third goal after another one-touch assist from Guangzhou Evergrande midfielder Paulinho.

The Toffees won 4-0 against Hull City in their most recent outing, while Liverpool drew 1-1 with Manchester City in their last match before the worldwide break.

However, Press Association Sport understands Lallana sustained a kick during that match and is hampered by a thigh injury which prevented him from training on Tuesday with the rest of his team-mates who returned from worldwide duty. "But he stood on his feet and scored", Tite said.

The disappointing performance in the 1-0 victory over Bolivia on Thursday is making Colombia fans worry that their team might not qualify for the World Cup. I don't play alone, I always say that. "Yes, the players are anxious because no one likes to lose".

"I was having a lot of difficulties in my beginning (at Barcelona)".

"The matches Messi is disqualified for are all FIFA World Cup qualifying matches", the organisers said. I also get along with Luis Suarez, we always help each other.

Neymar was a clear target for Paraguay during the early exchanges, fouled on several occasions but the star man dusted himself off and got on with the job, nearly setting up the opener in the sixth minute following a teasing delivery to Paulinho.

"There has been a big change".

The Samba boys should not have much problems against Paraguay, but they should not be over confident.

Brazil coach Tite was conducting his post-match press conference when news filtered through that Uruguay had lost to Peru, ensuring Brazil became the first side to successfully negotiate qualifying for Russian Federation 2018.

Matters became more hard for the hosts when Luis Caicedo was sent off for a second yellow card just past the hour mark and, although they missed chances for a third, Colombia's victory always looked assured.
