W/Cup Qualifier: Neymar And Co. Destroy Bolivia

By Adebayo Williams

Neymar and his Brazilian mates were 5-0 victors over Bolivia as the Selecao secured their third victory in as many games in the World Cup qualifying series. The Barcelona forward opened the scoring in the 11th minute before Liverpool duo Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Jesus and Filipe Luis scored to complete the rout.

With his 49th international goal, Neymar moved above Brazil great Zico and into outright fourth in the list of highest goalscorers for the national team.

For Bolivia, it continued their awful record in away World Cup qualifiers, stretching their winless run to 51 games.

Brazil will travel to Venezuela on Tuesday, while Bolivia host Ecuador.
