Well now we look back to last round. The big loss for us was ARgentina 3-1 Brasil.

Now you would think Paraguay will beat Argentina who are qualified and Brasil will qualify by beating Chile.

Hoping for Argentina to take at least a point, Uruguay to do the same, Bolivia and us. And GO VENEZUELA against Peru ;)

I'm hoping for a round 16 stalemate

Chile striker Salas to leave River Plate

BUENOS AIRES, July 12 (Reuters) - Chile striker Marcelo Salas is to end his second spell at River Plate after failing to agree a new contract with the Argentine team.

"Salas did not accept the terms offered by River ... and will not continue at the club," president Jose Maria Aguilar told reporters on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old Salas returned for a second spell at River, where he made his name during the 1990s, after leaving Juventus in July 2003.

But he showed only flashes of the form which once made him one of the world's top strikers.

One of the highlights was a superb hat-trick in a 4-2 win over Ecuador's LDU in the Libertadores Cup earlier this year.

Salas became Chile's record scorer when he was on target in the 3-1 win over Bolivia in June.

He pulled clear of his former striking partner Ivan Zamorano when he netted his 35th international goal, and his first for four years.

As I stated it here about 15 days ago...Salas has NO team...and no contract with Juve anylonger ... El Matador is headed for the wet pastures of Temuco !!!! :notlist:

I hope he enlists at Pinto Duran...that way we can give Brasil, Colombia and Ecuador a run for their money !!!!!!!! :lala:

Brazil one win from finals, showdown for Uruguay :eekL

By Brian Homewood

RIO DE JANEIRO, Sept 1 (Reuters) - World champions Brazil will clinch their place at next year's finals in Germany and maintain their proud record as the only country to have played at every World Cup tournament if they beat Chile on Sunday.

On the same evening, Uruguay, whose coach Jorge Fossati spent two days in hospital last week with chest pains, and Colombia meet in Montevideo in a showdown which the hosts must win to have a realistic chance of staying in the hunt.

Ecuador will take a big step towards their second successive World Cup if they can win in Bolivia while Paraguay can give their hopes a boost by beating Argentina, who have already guaranteed their place.

With three rounds of matches to go in the marathon contest, Argentina lead the 10-nation group with 31 points from 15 games followed by Brazil (27), Ecuador (23) and Paraguay (22).

The other teams in contention are Colombia and Chile (20) and Uruguay (18).

Venezuela and Peru (15) and Bolivia (13) appear to be out of the running.

The top four teams qualify directly and the fifth play off against the Oceania region winners -- either Australia or the Soloman Islands -- for another place.

Brazil, the first defending champions ever to be denied automatic qualification to the following World Cup, are set to clinch their place in Brasilia after a long but relatively painless campaign in which they have lost only two games, away to Ecuador and Argentina.

Even if they do not beat Chile, they still have matches away to Bolivia and at home to Venezuela to pick up the points.

Coach Carlos Alberto Parreira, a man of little mystery when it comes to team selections, has already named his side in which Ronaldo will partner Adriano in attack with Robinho just behind alongside Kaka.

Ronaldinho is suspended.

DEFENSIVE CHILE

Chile coach Nelson Acosta is expected to adopt an ultra-defensive approach with Sporting's Mauricio Pinilla as the lone attacker rather than Marcelo Salas, who is short of match practice.

Uruguay have included Inter Milan forward Alvaro Recoba in their squad for the match against Colombia which they know they cannot afford to lose on Sunday evening.

"It's a fundamental game and we have to look on it as a matter of life or death," said Real Madrid midfielder Pablo Garcia.

Recoba began a self-imposed exile in November last year after being jeered by Uruguay fans following an unhappy run of form for his country.

Paraguay are without injured striker Jose Cardozo but are hopeful that Bayern Munich's Roque Santa Cruz can recover in time from a thigh strain to face Argentina in Asuncion on Saturday.

Argentina are without strikers Hernan Crespo, who also has a thigh strain, and Luciano Galletti and Brazil-based midfielder Javier Mascherano.

Ecuador have spent one week acclimatising in La Paz, which lies at 3,600 metres above sea level, for their game on Saturday.

Striker Agustin Delgado joined the squad on Tuesday after he was barred from leaving Quito with the rest of the squad in a bureaucratic mix-up which immigration authorities later blamed on a computer error.

Venezuela and Peru complete the programme in Maracaibo with only mathematical chances of staying in the race.

Peru coach Freddy Ternero has omitted English-based Nolberto Solano and veteran midfielder Roberto Palacios from his squad.

However, Bayern Munich pair Claudio Pizarro and Paolo Guerrero are both included for the trip.

Kaká And Robinho Call For Concentration Against Chile

9/2/2005

Parreira’s new attacking midfield pair, given Ronaldinho Gaúcho’s enforced absence due to the three yellow cards picked up in the course of the WCQ so far, have sent a warning shot out to those who see Sunday’s game as a walk in the park.

“It’s going to be far more complicated than most people are willing to admit” said Kaká, “they’re just looking for a draw, whereas we’re playing for the win that would seal our presence in Germany next year.” The new Madrid number 10 concurred;”It’s a fundamental game for our team and we’ve got to shoulder the responsibility for ensuring that we book our place at the World Cup a.s.a.p.”

Both have taken on board orders from Parreira to rope in their all-out attacking instincts and help Zé Roberto and Emerson with the crucial dirty work in midfield. “I’ll be keeping a sharp eye on stopping any counter-attacks and generally hassling their build-up of moves from the back” confirmed the AC Milan idol.

Robinho will be the first stone in the Chilean’s shoe, buzzing around their keeper like a wasp and acting ‘in the hole’ behind the double-barrelled attack formed by Ronaldo and Adriano. “I’m going to be looking to help with marking the more capable defenders so we don’t overload our defensive midfielders and centre-backs with an obligation to be everywhere at once.”

Brazil are in second place in the Conmebol WCQ table, taking a backseat to the Albiceleste’s 31 points. Chile are in sixth position with 20 to the seleção’s 27, and their target is to grab the fifth spot that leads to the playoff against the Oceania WCQ champions for a prized spot in Germany.

Last WCQ To Be Played In The Amazon

CBF (Confederação Brasileira de Futebol) President Ricardo Teixeira confirmed that the venue for the final Brazilian WCQ match will be in the sweaty surroundings of the Mangueirão stadium, located deep in the heart of the Amazon in the northern city of Belém-PA. This will make the Venezuela match the second official game to be played close to the equator in the WCQ after the 1-0 win over Ecuador in Manaus’ Vivaldão stadium.
