Brazil 3-0 Argentina RECAP: How the Selecao claimed an easy win in the crucial World Cup qualifier


Qualification for the 2018 World Cup in Russia remains a rocky road for Lionel Messi and his Argentina side following their 3-0 humbling at the hands of Brazil.

Argentina went into the contest in Belo Horizonte sitting sixth in South American qualifying, outside the qualification places, with goals from Philippe Coutinho, Neymar and Paulinho making their task all the more difficult as they look to turn things around with seven matches remaining.

Their defensive frailties were on display during an opening 45 minutes where Brazil’s tricky frontline ran the Argentine back four ragged and punished them with two superbly-taken goals, on a night where Messi was never able to stamp his mark on the contest and Gonzalo Higuain was starved of chances.
