Newcastle United star Bruno Guimaraes stunned by late blow

Bruno Guimaraes found himself in the starting lineup for Brazil for the third consecutive match. Once more, he was alongside Casemiro in the midfield, aiming to secure their third consecutive victory in World Cup group qualifying matches.

Initially, everything seemed to be going according to plan, with Brazil asserting their dominance on the field. The midfield duo played a pivotal role, as evident in the final statistics that displayed a 71% possession rate and 625 successful passes, dwarfing Venezuela’s 250 completions.

Despite their control of the game, Brazil’s inability to convert numerous scoring opportunities had left them frustrated. It was only on the 50th minute, following a Neymar corner, that Gabriel’s header finally put them in the lead. However, their failure to capitalize on other clear chances meant that the game wasn’t entirely sealed, though Brazil remained in control.

Venezuela managed only a single shot on target during the first 79 minutes of the match. With just 11 minutes to go, fresh legs were substituted in for Bruno Guimaraes, Casemiro, and Vinicius Junior to secure the victory.

Unfortunately, Bruno Guimaraes, on the bench, was left stunned as Venezuelan substitute Bello scored a spectacular overhead kick, earning Venezuela an unexpected point. This incredible goal marked only Venezuela’s second (and last) shot on target in the entire match.

Former Newcastle striker Salomon Rondon played the full game for Venezuela and celebrated with his teammates at the end.

Bruno Guimaraes and the Brazilian team are now looking ahead to their upcoming away game against Uruguay on Tuesday (early hours of Wednesday, UK time).
