Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay are all regulars at the World Cup.Brazil have won the World Cup for five times in total and despite a decline in strength in recent years has occurred,Brazil still dominate in South America. A Neymar-led Brazil is not to be underestimated. Brazil have won the most World Cups to date and have never missed a World Cup.
Argentina have also won two World Cups and have a history of stars such as Maradona, Riquelme and Batistuta. However, in the Messi era, Argentina’s World Cup results have been less than stellar. Messi has just helped Argentina to win the Copa America this summer and he has broke the record of winning 0 titles in his national team career.Argentina have qualified for the World Cup. Lionel Messi is also set to make his fifth World Cup appearance. The Argentine superstar has turned 34 years old and next year’s World Cup in Qatar could be the last World Cup of his career.
Uruguay have also won two World Cups in their history. The first World Cup in 1930 was won by Uruguay, and the 2010 World Cup in South Africa was the best record of  Uruguay  in recent years, as they reached the last four. However, as Suarez, Cavani and others become older and older, Uruguay suffered from a lack of youth and a seriously ageing squad. Uruguay have suffered four straight defeats in this year’s World Cup qualifier and have fallen to 7th place in the table.
With 14 rounds of matches have been played in the South American World Qualifiers, Brazil are at the top of the table with 11 wins, 2 draws and have won 35 points, 6 points ahead of Argentina who are one round behind them and in advance of the tournament. Argentina are in second place of the group. In a match played yesterday, Argentina drew 0-0 with Brazil but with opponents like Colombia, Chile and Uruguay all dropped points in this round,Argentina were also qualified for 2022 World Cup.
