Brazil top the South American world cup qualifying table with 33 off 14 games.

Brazil continue their stellar World Cup qualifying campaign with a 3-0 win over Paraguay.

While Brazil can already start packing for Russia, Paraguay's qualifying chances appear slim as they flounder five points adrift of the automatic qualifying places with four games remaining. Coutinho also understands the level of joy victory gives to both sets of fans and will be keen to ensure that the points stay on the red side of Merseyside, where UEFA Champions League football is expected for next season.

Neymar also missed a penalty but it mattered little as the team managed by Tite, who are just four points away from progressing as section winners, continued their record of featuring at every World Cup since the inaugural tournament in 1930.

Colombia, Chile and Uruguay are all now with Brazil in the automatic qualifying positions.

Brazil no longer depends entirely on Neymar, and it can play without its teenage target-man Gabriel Jesus and still score many goals.

The win coupled with Uruguay's loss sends the Selecao' to Russian Federation with four games to spare. Dunga's surprising appointment as head coach after Brazil lost its home World Cup distanced many fans.

In the second-half, Brazil moved up the gears, with Neymar winning a penalty, only to see his effort easily saved by Antony Silva after a bloody silly run up.

When World Cup qualifiers resumed in September a year ago, Tite's team was ready to dominate.

As Brazil cruised to a 3-0 victory against Paraguay, it still needed a Peruvian win against Uruguay to clinch its qualification for the 2018 World Cup.

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.
