Brazil 3-1 Argentina (World Cup Qualifier 2010) – Video Highlights

Bye Bye Maradona?

Brazil ruthlessly sealed their qualification for the World Cup in South Africa tonight, but Argentina’s fate is looking ever more uncertain after this crushing defeat. Diego Maradona came into this match promising to attack Brazil, yet he could not have anticipated his side’s defence rendering his team’s threat so irrelevant. Argentina were woeful at the back and Brazil barely had to work for their goals.

Luis Fabiano struck twice as Brazil stunned arch-rivals Argentina 3-1 away in their World Cup qualifier on Saturday to reach the 2010 finals.

The defeat, after defender Luisao had put Brazil ahead in the 24th minute, left Argentina’s chances of reaching the finals in South Africa hanging by a thread.

Midfielder Jesus Datolo replied for Argentina.

Five-times world champions Brazil lead the South American group with 30 points. They are more than nine points ahead of fifth and sixth-placed Colombia and Ecuador with three games remaining.
