[WORLD CUP 2010 QUALIFYING] Brazil's troubles continued as it was held scoreless for the third straight game and had to settle for a 0-0 tie with archrival Argentina in South America's World Cup 2010 qualifying tournament on Wednesday.

Brazil coach Dunga was jeered and insulted by the crowd in Belo Horizonte, where Argentina had the better of play and could have won by for a double miss by forward Lionel Messi in stoppage time.

Brazil lost to Paraguay, 2-0, in qualifying last weekend and fell to Venezuela, 2-0, in a friendly played in Foxboro, Mass., on June 6. The loss was Brazil's first ever to Venezuela.
