Mixed fortunes for Mali and Brazil


Brazil lost 2-1 away to Bolivia while Mali beat Sudan 1-0 at home in the last two World Cup qualifying games of the weekend. However, there was little at stake for either Alves or Keita.

With Brazil already through to the finals in South Africa, Dunga made a few changes to his regular line-up. Dani Alves occupied the right of midfield and enjoyed a good performance, including hitting the woodwork. However, Bolivia were deserved winners thanks to goals from Olivares (min. 9) and Marcelo Moreno (min. 30). Nilmar pulled one back for the visitors (min. 69) but Brazil couldn’t muster enough danger to clock up their tenth win of the qualifying phase.

Mali and Keita beat Sudan (1-0)

Seydou Keita also played the full 90 minutes of Mali v Sudan (1-0). The only goal of the match was scored by Sevilla’s Frederic Kanouté in the 89th minute. However, it was a hollow victory as Mali are already mathematically out of the World Cup finals.
