Brazil were involved in a 2-2 draw with Uruguay in the latest World Cup qualifying match.
The result disappointed manager Dunga especially given that his team were having a comfortable 2-0 lead after just 27 minutes. Edinson Cavani pulled one back for Uruguay at 31st minute and this seemed to give the away team a lot of hope that they can get something out of the game. After the half-time break, former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez once again proved his impeccable value to the Uruguay team by scoring a second-half equaliser upon his return to international action.
The striker had been away from international duty for more than 600 days due to a suspension imposed by FIFA. He also missed four months of club football as result of his actions during the World Cup 2014. Renato Augusto and Douglas Costa were the scorers for Brazil, as they stormed out of their ground. Dunga admitted that this was a game of two halves with the first being dominated by the home team and Uruguay coming back into second. An even bigger disappointment for Brazil will be the suspension to Neymar for a yellow card. He will miss the qualifying game against Paraguay in a few days.
It has been a disastrous start to the World Cup qualifying campaign for Brazil, who are third and already five points behind table leaders Ecuador."That first half the team got off to a good start, rolling the ball and making most of the space. In the second half we were more static, without the same movement. Uruguay took advantage of it.In one half Brazil played, in the other it was Uruguay. To play against an attacker like Cavani, like Suarez is not easy. It's never easy to play against Uruguay," said the Brazil boss.
