Brazil has taken lead in the qualifiers list for the FIFA World Cup 2022, followed by Argentina and Venezuela, after beating Uruguay 2-0 on Tuesday.

According to the details, the first goal by the South American Team was netted by Arthur in the 34th minute, whereas Richarlison doubled the lead in the 45th.

Argentina, Brazil, and Venezuela claim important victories. Argentina, with seven points, had a late game against Peru. The top four teams will automatically qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The fifth-place team will go into an inter-continental playoff.

Argentine Star Lionel Messi, said “We’re very happy with the victory. We needed it after the other day. From the outset we played a great game. We created many, many chances and the goals came. Little by little we are getting strong as a group.”

The South American section of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualification acts as qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, to be held in Qatar, for national teams that are members of the South American Football Confederation (CONMEBOL). A total of 4.5 slots (4 direct slots and 1 inter-confederation play-off slot) in the final tournament are available for CONMEBOL teams.

The qualification process began on 8 October 2020. Uruguay’s Luis Suárez scored the first goal of the round-robin. This was a record as it was the third time Suárez had scored the opening goal of CONMEBOL’s World Cup qualifiers (after 2010 and 2014), as well as the fourth consecutive time an Uruguayan player had done so (Martín Cáceres scored the first goal of the 2018 process).
