Brazil Vs Bolivia

3 min read

Brazil’s Rodrygo scored a brace in a 5-1 victory over Bolivia in Para, marking the start of 2026 World Cup qualifying. However, Real Madrid’s Neymar scored Brazil’s fourth goal, becoming the country’s all-time leading goal scorer. Neymar’s 78th career international strike passed legendary Pele, making him the most prolific forward in Brazil’s history. Despite a complicated career filled with injuries, controversies, and tabloid headlines, he now holds the sole honor as Brazil’s most prolific forward. Neymar also scored Brazil’s fifth goal, a brace, and secured interim head coach Fernando Diniz’s debut victory.

Brazil vs Bolivia lineups & team news.

Neymar, a star of Brazilian football, has not yet appeared for Al Hilal, his new club, due to ankle surgery. He was selected to participate in Brazil’s pre-match media availability, indicating a match start. However, Brazil is missing several key players, including Vinicius Jr and Eder Militao, who suffered injuries at Real Madrid, and Antony and Lucas Paqueta, who were removed due to legal issues.

Fernando Diniz faces a selection dilemma at full-back, as both sides are underrepresented in the Brazil player pool. Danilo, the right-back for Juventus, is a candidate to start, but he’s 32 years old and not a long-term solution, while Vanderson, 22, plays for Monaco and has one cap. Only Renan Lodi and uncapped Caio Henrique are available on the left side in the September squad.

Ederson (GK) — Danilo, Gabriel, Marquinhos, Lodi — Casemiro, Guimaraes — Raphinha, Neymar, Rodrygo — Richarlison.

Subs for Brazil (12): Alisson, Perri, Vanderson, Nino, R. Ibanez, Henrique, Andre, Joelinton, R. Veiga, Martinelli, Cunha, Jesus.

Bolivia’s squad is led by 36-year-old forward Marcelo Martins, who has 102 caps and over 55 international appearances. Most of the remaining squad plays domestically in Bolivia, but some youngsters play overseas. One notable player is 19-year-old Miguelito, who plays for Brazilian side Santos. He made his professional debut for Santos but is still aiming to break into the first-team squad. Miguelito is teammates with fellow 19-year-old forward Enzo Monteiro, who is also in the Bolivia squad for this match.

Jaume Cuellar, 22, of Barcelona B in Spain, who is on loan from third-tier club Lugo, might also make an impact.

Viscarra (GK) — Medina, Quinteros, Jusino, M. Suarez, R. Fernandez — Bejarano, Cespedes, Villamil, Arrascaita — M. Martins.

Lampe (GK), Uraezana (GK), Haquin, Terceros, Villarroel, Algaranaz, Cuellar, Abrego, Ursino, Saucedo, Cuellar, Roca are the subs for Bolivia.
