  |   Football

Coutinho 28', Neymar 45', Paulinho 58'

Brazil🇧🇷 heaped misery on Argentina🇦🇷 with a thumping 3⃣-0⃣ win.
Kun Aguero⚡ replaced Enzo Perez as the Albiceleste began the half trailing by 2 goals⚽. However, Brazil continued to dominate proceedings and looked more likely to score. 💪Paulinho scored the third goal after a slick move facilitated by some intelligent movement from the attackers and abject defending. The former Tottenham man waltzed into the box unmarked and knocked in Renato Augusto's cross. Neymar⭐ had an opportunity to score but was denied✋ by a last-ditch tackle from Pablo Zabaleta. Argentina barely threatened as their opponents turned on the style😎 and ran rings around them. Substitute Roberto Firmino missed a glorious opportunity😖 towards the end of the game to cap off his appearance for the national team with a goal.
Argentina's qualification for World Cup🏆 2018 is hanging in the balance😟 as they stay rooted to the 6th spot in the table. They play Colombia in their next game.
High flying Brazil have all but confirmed their qualification and remain top of the group👏.
