Brazil have qualified for the World Cup but they will not settle for another draw against Bolivia.


World number one in the Fifa Ranking and current leaders of South American World Cup qualifier, Brazil, will end their World Cup campaign against Bolivia away and home against Venezuela. Brazil have already qualified for the World Cup but Coach Dunga has named a strong 24-man squad which includes a few Brazilian European based household names.

Boliva, led by Coach Erwin Sanchez, have failed to make the grade in qualifying for the World Cup. They are currently 2nd last in the group with 12 points in 16 matches played and 10 points away from a qualifying chance to the World Cup. There is not much more that Sanchez to do but a win here can put some pride back to the nation. Bolivia did surprise Brazil last time they met as Bolivia managed to get a hard earned 0-0 draw in Rio de Janeiro.

Brazil have lots to celebrate this year, they will be hosting the World Cup in 2012, hosting the Olympic in the 2016 and certain to qualify for the World Cup in 2010. All these good news have not gone through Coach Dunga’s head, he has named a strong 24 men squad which include players like Daniel Alves, Kaka, Lus Fabiano, Adriano and Lucio for the trip to Bolivia. He has also given Werder Bremen defender Naldo will return back to the Brazilian squad after a two year absent and Spartak Moscow midfielder, Alex, is also selected to face Bolivia.

Group Seven of the FIFA World Cup European Qualifying table will have two spots available in qualifying for the World Cup in South Africa next summer. Serbia is leading the group with 19 points from 8 matches played followed by France with 15 points and 8 matches played. France needs a win to make sure they guarantee at least a second place in the group.

Brazil are favorites to beat Bolivia. Even though Brazil have qualified for the World Cup, Dunga remains defiant in giving some European based Brazilian players a rest. Brazil might want to prove that their last result against Bolivia was just a fluke. Brazil to win away and Betsson is offering 1.72 for an away win.
