Goals from Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus and Chelsea's Willian sent Brazil to the top of the South American World Cup qualifying group in a thrilling 2-0 win over Venezuela today at the Estadio Metropolitano de Merida.
 The five-time World Cup winners opened the scoring 8 minutes into the game after Gabriel capitalised on a mistake by Venezuela goalkeeper Daniel Hernandez who tried to pass the ball to his centre half 30 yards from goal. Willian sealed the deal for the Selecao at the 53rd minute after powering home a cross from Renato Augusto.

Tite’s side will now face rivals Argentina, who were humbled 1-0 at home by Paraguay. The match will take place next month.
