Everton Ribeiro scored his second goal in two matches to lead Brazil to a 2-0 victory over its guest Peru in the World Cup qualifiers last night.
Ribeiro, who scored the goal in the 1-0 win over Chile last week, scored after 15 minutes after a pass from Neymar.
Ribeiro almost scored the second goal five minutes before the end of the first half, but the goalkeeper blocked the ball to bounce back to Neymar, who put it in the goal.
Brazil was satisfied with its superiority against Peru, which did not beat its host in the last 12 matches in the World Cup qualifiers.
Brazil kept a clean sheet for the ninth match in the qualifiers and achieved its eighth victory in eight matches in the Qatar 2022 qualifiers.
Brazil raised its score to 24 points in the lead, six points ahead of Argentina, who beat Bolivia 3-0 thanks to the Lionel Messi hat-trick.
The winners of the first four places qualify for the finals directly, while the fifth place goes to the international playoffs.
