On January 9th, the first official FIFA World Cup 2018 qualifying match between Brazil and Spain took place in Sao Paulo, with a draw between the two sides.
The game was widely regarded as one of the best in the history of the tournament, with the home side holding a commanding 2-0 lead after 90 minutes, and eventually ending up with a convincing 4-0 win.
The first leg was a much closer affair, with both sides enjoying a comfortable lead for the first half, with just one minute remaining on the clock, but it was clear that Brazil were on the back foot, with Luis Suarez and Neymar both sent off for late fouls.
Despite having a much tighter game, the result proved to be a turning point for Brazil.
“It was a game of great importance,” Brazil captain Neymar said after the match.
“I would like to thank the referee and everyone at the stadium, especially the Brazilian players who gave everything for us.
It’s an honour to represent my country, the best team in the world, and win the World Cup.”
With the draw, Brazil now lead Group A by a significant margin, with Spain sitting just behind them with a point to play for.
And now the game is on the cards, with Brazil needing to win to secure a place in the quarter-finals.
However, Brazil have already confirmed that they will be playing in front of a national audience on January 20th, with their next game being a 3-0 defeat against Germany.
