Yesterday Brazilians have confirmed their place at 2018 World Cup. Match ended with 3-1 and most of the work did Paulinho with Neymar.
At the start all talks were about could Tite find a replacement for injured Gabriel Jesus. So they played without him and Uruguay took an early advantage. Marcelo has had a mistake and Edinson Cavani used it. He scored from the penalty, but real game was only beginning.
Uruguay’s lead continued only 9 minutes, and after that Paulinho kicked a belter from outside the box. Then he did it again at the close range in 51’. Actually, he did almost all the work. In the final seconds, Paulinho sealed a brilliant 4-1 with the hilarious hat-trick. For now, he scored 4 goals for Brazil in total in last 3 games.
Still, Neymar took all headlines. After catching a long ball he cut a defender and did brilliant lob shot. All the performance you can see below.
So now everybody can be sure that Brazil will be a serious competitor at 2018 World Cup.
Ladies and Gentlemen
