Bolivia hold Brazil to draw in World Cup qualifier
La Paz (Bolivia) Oct 6 (IANS) Bolivia held Brazil to a goalless draw in their FIFA World Cup qualifier here a result that had little impact on the CONMEBOL group standings.
Brazil s star-studded team caused constant problems for Bolivia s defence but could not find a way past goalkeeper Carlos Lampe who made a series of fine saves on Thursday reports Xinhua news agency.
Brazil s best scoring chance came when Neymar and Gabriel Jesus combined late in the first half only for Lampe to block the Manchester City forward s shot with his face.
Neymar spurned several other opportunities after the break including a free-kick from the edge of the box that flew just over the bar.
Brazil have already qualified for next year s World Cup and are guaranteed to finish first in the 10-team South American zone group. Bolivia are ninth in the standings with just four wins from 17 matches.
