Dunga may have found Brazil's best formation; Ecuador, Uruguay cruise

Brazil put on a stunning display for their fans in Salvador, beating Peru 3-0 in their World Cup qualifier.

Renato Augusto
Renato Augusto's introduction into Brazil's midfield transformed the Selecao's play.

There are two explanations for the surprise top two in South America's World Cup qualifiers.

Firstly, Ecuador, with a 100 percent record, and Uruguay, three points behind, lead the field because of their own merits.

Ecuador have a well consolidated idea of play, breaking at pace with very dangerous wingers. And now, in Gustavo Quinteros, they would seem to have a quality coach who has brought his own refinements, protecting a suspect defence by making his team mark aggressively higher up the pitch.

Five players who shone in South America's World Cup qualifiers

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes breaks down the latest action from CONMEBOL as Argentina remained winless and Brazil cruised past Venezuela.

The journey to Russia 2018 is officially underway in South America, and the results so far have been anything but predictable. Here's a look at five players who stood out in the first two rounds of CONMEBOL's World Cup qualifiers:

1. Alexis Sanchez (Chile)

Just over three months ago, when Chile won their first title, it was Alexis Sanchez who had the honour of sealing the triumph. When the final of the Copa America against Argentina went to a shootout, it was his penalty, cheekily chipped down the...

Uruguay, Ecuador unlikely CONMEBOL leaders in World Cup qualifying

Angel Di Maria and Argentina were presumptive favorites in World Cup qualifying, but the plan hasn't gone to script.

When the fixtures were drawn for South America's World Cup qualification campaign, it always looked likely that November's third round would feature an early battle for the leadership. And indeed it will. However, that match won't be in Buenos Aires, where Argentina take on Brazil, as the two giants have gotten off to faltering starts.

Instead, first place will be up for grabs in Quito, where Ecuador host Uruguay. These two nations, along with newly crowned continental champions Chile, have won...

Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo behind Diego Godin for most minutes played

Diego Godin must continue his superb form for Atletico if Uruguay is to contend for top honors this summer.
Diego Godin celebrates after scoring for Atletico Madrid against Real Madrid in the 2014 Champions League final.

There's been a lot of football played over the past two years, and one player leads the way in minutes played by some considerable distance. This player has effectively played over four more games than any other. 

He has led his team to La Liga glory, to the verge of ultimate European glory and has taken over the captaincy of his country.

But while he plays in Spain, he isn't one of the biggest stars of the world game at Barcelona or Real Madrid. 

In first place is Atletico Madrid...

Chile and Uruguay pushed the limits in Copa America clash that turned ugly

SANTIAGO, Chile -- Mauricio Isla's late strike means Chile are now 90 minutes away from the Copa America final. But La Roja's 1-0 quarterfinal win over Uruguay will be most remembered for an act which redefines gamesmanship and skullduggery and two managers at opposite poles each steadfastly clinging to their view of the game.

In football, as in most things, you can either do what most do -- try to do it better. Or you can be different, come up with something new and hope it will give you an edge....

Chile one step closer to a first competition win

It was a moment that meant so much more than just putting Chile into the semifinal of the Copa America, or any competition, for the first time since 1999.

As Mauricio Isla fired the ball past the flailing Uruguay goalkeeper Fernando Muslera to give his country a dramatic 1-0 win over their nine-man opponent, the shot was so...
