Sao Paulo:

World Champions Brazil cruised past Bolivia and back to the top of the South American World Cup qualifying group with a 3-1 win in Sao Paulo on Sunday. Regular stars Ronaldo and Ronaldinho were both on target at the Morumbi Stadium, as was Adriano, who shone at the Copa America in the 'two R's' absence. Bolivia struck back three minutes into the second half when Luis Cristaldo's shot deflected in off Edmilson's head, but Brazil's dominance was never threatened. Brazil now leap back to the top of the qualification standings, one point clear of rivals Argentina who lie second - some consolation for the first World Champions to ever have to qualify for a World Cup.
