Ecuador vs. Colombia puts CONMEBOL qualifying sides' deficiencies on display

Gab Marcotti and Alejandro Moreno enthusiastically debate whether Brazil can be called the world's best team right now.
Steve Nicol expresses surprise in Brazil's defensive improvement under Tite, made evident in their win at Uruguay.
Alejandro Moreno says Argentina's win over Chile in qualifying covered up glaring problems for Edgardo Bauza's side.

With five rounds of the 18 to go, there are now four separate competitions taking place in CONMEBOL's World Cup qualifying campaign.

Brazil are in a category of their own. Seven consecutive victories have given them a seven-point lead at the top of the table. They are all but mathematically qualified for Russia 2018 and can use the rest of competition to try to ensure that they have not peaked too soon.

At the other end of the scale are Venezuela and Bolivia, down at the foot of the table with no...

The state of play in South America's World Cup qualifiers

Alejandro Moreno and Alexis Nunes predict which teams will prevail ahead of a juicy slate of CONMEBOL World Cup qualifiers.
Gab Marcotti explains why FIFA's decision to expand the World Cup to 48 teams has its benefits, but not everyone agrees.

There are no real prizes for coming first. Or second for that matter. World Cup qualification in South America is all about crossing the line and making it through to Russia.

The first four teams qualify automatically for next year's tournament, with the side finishing fifth having to play off against opponents from Oceania. And as the competition moves into the final third, only Brazil are really sitting pretty.

Those six consecutive wins under new coach Tite have carried Brazil to 27 points. In...

Real Madrid star James Rodriguez upstaged by daughter's bottle flip

Having found competitive action hard to come by at Real Madrid this season, James Rodriguez also suffered the embarrassment of being upstaged by his very own flesh and blood recently.

At a PR event for his energy drink brand, Rodriguez was tasked with conquering the bottle flip challenge -- basically spinning a bottle through the air and landing it the right way up.

The Colombia international had several attempts but repeatedly failed to stick the landing, only to then see his adorable three-year-old...

Brazil and Colombia remember Chapecoense as Dudu settles friendly

Chapecoense friendly: Brazil vs. Colombia
Brazil and Colombia stood to remember the victims of the Chapecoense air disaster on Wednesday.

The prime purpose of Wednesday night's game between Brazil and Colombia was, of course, to raise funds for the victims of the Chapecoense air disaster. The secondary aim was to further strengthen ties of friendship between the two countries involved. Drawing serious conclusions from the 90 minutes played in Rio de Janeiro comes a long way third.

Quite apart from the other, thoroughly noble objectives, it is increasingly hard to make solid assessments based on international friendlies, which tend...

Chapecoense memorial a fittingly imperfect testament to humanity

It was always going to be emotional. Two months after the tragic plane crash that robbed 71 people of their lives and a football club of their happy anonymity, Brazil welcomed Colombia to Rio de Janeiro for a meeting that was not about the match.

The marketing men had dubbed it "The Game of Friendship," but the feelings ran deeper than that. In the first instance, it was a chance to pay tribute to the fallen -- to the players, officials and journalists who boarded LaMia Flight 2933 and never returned...

48-team World Cup could negatively affect South American qualifying

Gab Marcotti and Shaka Hislop join Outside the Lines and have their say at FIFA expanding the World Cup to 48 teams.
Gab Marcotti joins Outside the Lines to discuss the reasons behind moving the World Cup from 32 to 48 teams in 2026.
Shaka Hislop expresses his disapproval at FIFA's decision to expand the World Cup to 48 teams.

On the website of CONMEBOL, the South American Confederation, there is an article entitled: "From 13 teams in Uruguay 1930 to 48 in the 2026 World Cup."

It is a neat way of reminding everyone of one of the great trump cards of the South American game: its fabulous tradition. This is the continent where the World Cup began and which has won nine versions of the tournament, divided between Brazil (five wins) and Uruguay and Argentina (two apiece).

The big three has provided Barcelona with the "MSN"...
