World Cup qualifying. Chile defeat Brazil 1-2.
Brazil, still playing without its overseas stars, suffered its third defeat in a row during preparations for the World Cup qualifying campaign when it lost 1-2 to Chile in Santiago on Tuesday (21/5). The three-times World Cup winners found themselves two goals behind at half-time after Rubio in the eighth minute and Caszely two minutes before the break had struck for the home side. Walter Casagrande pulled one back in the 58th minute, but they could not equalise. It was only Chile's fourth victory over Brazil in 44 meetings and it sparked great anger among Brazilian fans and commentators who fear that the side will fail to qualify against Bolivia and Paraguay when the qualifying campaign begins on 3rd June. Their manager, Evaristo Macedo, who excluded Zico, Socrates, Junior, Edinho and Cerezo this season, was sacked after the Chile defeat and replaced with Tele Santana.
