SAO PAULO, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Brazil have scope for improvement despite a convincing 5-0 win over Bolivia in their opening South American zone World Cup qualifier here on Friday, according to midfielder Casemiro.
"Chile is a team that in recent years has been very consistent, it is a winning team, with big figures," said Godin who plays for Italian Club Cagliari.
Team play was lacking but at least the defense was doing its job by keeping the lurking Scots away from the penalty box. As a result, the first half did not produce a single shot a goal on either side.
"The players are finding their rhythm on the field, but they have yet to hit their best form to ensure a victory over South Korea next February," he said. "They need to further improve their techniques, coordination and tactics."
Messi admitted Thursday's match did not pan out as the Albiceleste had hoped, rueing his team's lethargy early on.
"I would love to finish my career being the player with more Grand Slams. But on the other hand, I have to do my way," Nadal said. "In terms of these records, of course, that I care. I am a big fan of the history of sport in general. But let's see what's going on when we finish our careers. We keep playing."
Malian captain Hamari Traore secured the opening goal in the third minute while El Bilal Traore and Haidara Amadou also scored in the 49th and 75th minutes respectively to secure a convincing win for the Eagles.
The Swiss need a positive result from their visit to Madrid after losing to Ukraine and being held at home by Germany, but with players such as Granit Xhaka in their side they are likely to provide another stiff test for Spain. Enditem
