Brazil will not miss the World Cup. Winning with Colombia gave her confidence in the process

Brazil’s footballers defeated Colombia 1-0 in qualifying and were the first South American team to advance to the World Cup in Qatar. Lucas Paquetá decided to win the five-time champions in Sao Paulo.

Brazil has not lost in qualifying yet and with 34 points at the top of the table he is sure that he will finish in the first four places, which ensure a direct advance. She is nine points away from the second Argentina, and 16 points from Colombia in the fifth playoff position.

Coach Tite’s selection scored his eleventh home win in a row and improved his own qualifying record. The Brazilians took care of the next maximum in the tenth home match without a collected goal in a row.

“It’s the result of long work,” Paquetá said. “I cried with happiness after the goal, because you live for these moments. It was a reward for a lot of hard work,” added midfielder Lyon.

In the next round, Brazil will have a rerun of the lost final of the South American Championship with Argentina on Wednesday. “It will always be an exceptional match. It is true that they defeated us in the final, but I think we deserved to win. This is our chance to show what we can do,” said goalkeeper Alisson.

“We will celebrate a bit tomorrow, but we must continue to work to maintain stable performance, creativity and add more goals and victories,” said coach Tite, who scored the 50th victory on the Brazilian bench.

“I see perfection, that’s what moves you forward, and we need to get as close as possible,” added the 60-year-old coach, who took on the national team’s World Cup qualifiers in 2018. He also has 12 draws and five defeats.

The tournament in Qatar will take place next year from November 21 to December 18. Germany and Denmark have already secured a place in the qualification for the championship, and the selection of the organizing country also has a certain participation.
