    Background: INTRODUCTION: In a World Cup qualifying soccer match in Caracas on Sunday (March 15) Venezuela beat Bolivia one-nil -- a result that virtually guarantees a place in the final for Brazil.

    SYNOPSIS: Bolivia, on the attack early in the game, nearly scored. Only goalkeeper Vegas' agility saved Venezuela.

    Now Venezuela goes into attack. The best of the action all came in the first half.

    And here comes the goal - scored by defender Pedro Acosta.

    About 10,000 people watched the game, in the University Stadium in Caracas. Bolivia kept up the pressure throughout the first half, but the Venezuelan defence steadily improved, and Bolivia was never able to score an equaliser.

    This was the second leg of the tie, and gave Venezuela its revenge -- for the in the first leg in La Paz last month, Venezuela went down to Bolivia 3-nil.

    In the second half, neither side ever really looked like adding to the score. Brazil, the other nation in this group, has already beaten both of them, away. So it would have to lose both return legs, at home, to fail to qualify for a place in the final next year in Spain.
