Neymar helps guarantee World Cup place for Brazil”

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

Paris Saint-Germain's Cavani struck from the spot against Brazil to save his country's blushes, but the Ligue 1 top scorer (27 goals) failed to find the target as the Celeste fell in Lima.

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.

The five-time World Cup champions had a 3-0 victory over seventh-place Paraguay in Sao Paulo, moving to 33 points from 14 matches in South American qualifying.

Neymar was in the thick of the action again moments later after winning a contentious penalty but his spot-kick was easily saved by Silva.

It's one of the most hard games and I don't think this one will be any different'.

The Selecao moved to within touching distance of a berth at next year's World Cup with a 4-1 victory over Uruguay in Montevideo on Thursday.

The final was 61-58, but based on the way their final possession went, the Mountaineers were miles away from winning that game. West Virginia would be whistled for 25 fouls, Gonzaga would be whistled for 26 and, unfavorably, that slowed the Mountaineers.

They had the flawless chance to double it minutes into the second half, but Neymar missed his penalty in the 51st minute to hand the visitors a reprieve.
