Philippe Coutinho and Raphinha score to put an end to Paraguay’s hopes of qualifying for Qatar 2022. In Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier in Belo Horizonte, Brazil struck twice in the final four minutes to seal a 4-0 victory over Paraguay.
With 10 months until the event, there’s a reason why Brazil is the overwhelming favorite to win the 2022 World Cup. In a World Cup qualifier with only one squad on the field, the Selecao showed off its credentials with a 4-0 triumph over Paraguay.
Brazil pinned Paraguay back and blasted four goals past the visitors with a combination of power, talent, and togetherness that few other countries can match.

While Brazil fans will fantasize about what could happen in November in Qatar with players like Vinicius Jr., Raphinha, Matheus Cunha, and Antony in top form, Paraguay will have to wait till next time. With the result, the Albirroja were formally eliminated from contention, but they already knew that. The Paraguayans haven’t scored or won in seven games.
Raphinha of Leeds United was a nightmare on the right wing, while Vinicius Jr. of Real Madrid was unstoppable on the left. They made a deadly trio with Matheus Cunha of Atletico Madrid. In the second half, Antony and Rodrygo came on to keep the pressure on, and both scored goals.
Philippe Coutinho’s brilliant display in midfield, however, was the match’s highlight. Not only was the new Aston Villa signing pinging balls about the ground, but he also scored a goal, albeit a stunning one, with a screamer from distance that beat the goalkeeper high and narrowly under the crossbar.Philippe Coutinho’s brilliant display in midfield, however, was the match’s highlight.

Brazil is still undefeated and in top place in the qualification standings after winning all seven of its home matches by a cumulative score of 19-1. Brazil may not have Neymar in its lineup, but it is obviously not short on ability.
