Marquinhos' Brazil clinch World Cup qualification

Brazil have become the second side to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, alongside hosts Russian Federation.

Brazil are the first country to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation after defeating Paraguay 3 - 0 on Wednesday.

Five-time champion Brazil had been left waiting in suspense after goals from Neymar, Philippe Coutinho and Marcelo ensured a 3-0 win over the Paraguayans at Sao Paulo's Arena Corinthians.

Brazil lead the South American group standings with 30 points from 13 games, while Uruguay are second with 23 points.

Brazil will face Paraguay in a 2018 World Cup qualifying soccer match on March 28. In 13 matches "pentakampeony" scored nine wins, three games ended in a draw and only one lost.

Real Madrid defender Marcelo added a late third to seal Brazil's win.

With Brazil nearly sure to advance - and Venezuela, Bolivia and Peru struggling at the bottom - that leaves six teams fighting for the three remaining automatic spots for Russian Federation.

As Argentina struggles without Lionel Messi, various reactions have emerged due to FIFA's decision; among them were Head coach Edgardo Bauza who denounced Federation Internationale de Football Association for making an abrupt decision right before the game started.

It was yet another night to remember for Brazil under coach Tite on Tuesday evening.

This is just as Bolivia took advantage of Lionel Messi's absence to claim a comfortable 2-0 victory, harming Argentina's hopes of World Cup qualification in La Paz. He won two Brazilian championships, one Copa Libertadores, and the 2012 FIFA Club World Cup title after a 1-0 victory over England's Chelsea in Japan. It's been confirmed that these results will see Brazil climb to the top of the FIFA World Rankings for the first time in six years.

"I think we had lost them a bit, I can remember when I was younger that I always wanted to watch Brazil play".

Neymar will wear the armband for the fixture and head coach Tite heaped praise on the Brazilian star, who stepped down as skipper after leading the country to a gold medal at the Rio Olympics previous year.

Neymar found himself the target of the visitors' defence early, being fouled a number of times in the opening stages but got on with the job at hand and nearly set up the opening goal six minutes in.
