A Gabriel Jesus brace and Paulinho goal saw Brazil to a deserved 3-0 win over Chile, who will miss the 2018 World Cup
Chile will sensationally miss the 2018 World Cup after suffering a 3-0 loss to Brazil in qualifying on Tuesday.
Paulinho and Gabriel Jesus struck in the space of three second-half minutes at the Allianz Parque in Sao Paulo before the latter sealed the deserved victory late.
Tite’s side dominated the first half without capitalising, before a Claudio Bravo error allowed Paulinho to open the scoring.
Jesus then struck twice, completing a sensational qualifying campaign for CONMEBOL group winners Brazil.
It meant South American champions Chile needed other results to go their way to move into a play-off with New Zealand, but Peru’s equaliser at home to Colombia saw Juan Antonio Pizzi’s men finish sixth.
Tite made two changes to the starting XI held in Bolivia, with Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson handed his first international cap
Ederson replaced Alisson in goal, while Marquinhos took Thiago Silva’s place in the centre of defence.
For Chile, there were three changes to the side that claimed a dramatic 2-1 win at home to Ecuador.
