Brazil has become the first side to seal their place at the World Cup finals in Russia next year.

A 3-0 win over Paraguay, along with defeats for Argentina and Uruguay, means the team cannot finish lower than fourth in South American qualifying.

Liverpool forward Philippe Coutinho, Barcelona striker Neymar and Real Madrid's Marcelo scored Brazil's goals.

It is Brazil's eighth straight win under coach Tite.

Thirty more teams will join Brazil, and hosts Russia, at next summer's World Cup.
