  Neymar, Messi, Suárez impress in World Cup qualifying SAO PAULO — Neymar and Luis Suárez rewrote some record books and Argentina is breathing easier thanks to Lionel Messi. In South American qualifying for the World Cup on Tuesday night, Neymar became Brazil’s second leading goal scorer after a hat trick in a 4-2 win at Peru. Neymar passed Ronaldo and now trails only Pelé. Messi paced Argentina to a 2-1 win at Bolivia, its first in the altitude of La Paz since 2005. Suárez, despite Uruguay’s 4-2 loss at Ecuador, became the leading goal scorer in the history of South American qualifying. As the “MSN” trio, they helped Barcelona win the Champions League, two Spanish leagues, one Club World Cup and three Copa del Rey.

He picked up a hamstring injury on Tuesday during his team’s 2-0 Champions League win over Midtjylland.

Neymar and Philippe Coutinho have been picked for Brazil ' s squad ahead of next month's World Cup qualifying matches. The squad announcement comes after FIFA assured national teams that players based in Europe would be available for the international duty amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Brazilian soccer confederation said Wednesday that Coutinho will be replaced by Lyon forward Lucas Paquetá, while Everton's Allan was called up in place of Fabinho for matches against Venezuela on Nov. 13 and Uruguay four days later.

Neymar is also in doubt for the two games. The Paris Saint-Germain striker left his team's 2-0 Champions League win at Istanbul Basaksehir due a groin problem. The French club said he is expected to go through exams on Thursday.

Tagliafico's own-goal gives Liverpool 1-0 win at Ajax

  Tagliafico's own-goal gives Liverpool 1-0 win at Ajax AMSTERDAM — Liverpool’s makeshift defence held firm and a fortunate goal earned Jurgen Klopp’s team a 1-0 victory over Ajax on Wednesday in their Champions League opener at the empty Johan Cruyff Area. Ajax defender Nicolas Tagliafico turned a mishit shot by Sadio Mane into his own net in the 35th minute for the only goal of the match. At the other end, a combination of poor finishing, bad luck and an acrobatic goal-line clearance by stand-in central defender Fabinho denied Ajax a goal. Liverpool was playing without captain and central defender Virgil van Dijk after the Dutchman suffered a serious knee injury in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Everton.

Coutinho is set to be joined in missing Brazil ' s qualifiers by Liverpool's Fabinho . Liverpool were waiting for a scan on the injury on Wednesday, but Jurgen Klopp suggested Fabinho 's absence would not represent a major blow for Brazil , as he has earned just 12 caps for his country and started on

Coutinho injured his left thigh on Saturday in Barcelona's 3-1 loss to Real Madrid. Paquetá had initially been called up for Brazil's Olympic team, which will play Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

Fabinho picked up a right thigh injury on Tuesday during his team's 2-0 Champions League win over Midtjylland.

Also on Wednesday, Manchester United said its left-back Alex Telles has contracted COVID-19, which will likely rule him out of Brazil's squad for the World Cup qualifiers.

Brazil and Argentina lead the South American qualifying group with two wins from two matches.
