    Updated... the round down of the first matchday of South American qualifiers yielded one major surprise with Venezuela defeating Ecuador in Quito where Ecuador had not lost since 2001. Brazil and Colombia dissapointed in a boring game lacking any real scoring chances and Riquelme who doesnt play anywhere was superp with Argentina scoring twice on free kicks.

    Nicolas Burdisso just got hurt in the Venezuela game, it looks pretty serious he is unconcious and was not able to move. He received a headbut to his neck....let's hope he is ok, I saw it and I worried, it looks very serious

    What a goal by Messi. Very nice. Hopefully Burdisso is cool btw. Would hate to see him out for a long time.

    Update: The second match day is over and there were few surprises. Argentina efficiently dominated a hard working Venezuela, 2-0. Chile controlled Peru in Santiago taking all the points while both Colombia and Ecuador dissapointed with a tie and a scandalous lost to Brazil. Brazil woke up and easily dominated Ecuador with a great match by Kaka.

    Not to mention the Ecuadoran GK performance. Really, what a mess...

    Hopefully this is a beginning of a Samba re-awakening for Brazil, because honestly, even with the Copa America win, they've been lacking since before World Cup 2006.

    Robinho's effort against that Ecuduadorean defender. Wow.
    Kaka overall. Fantastic. Now if Ronaldinho could find form with the team. Not to mention Dunga stops starting Vagner Love & finds someone legit (get back to form Adriano & soon).
