Chile beat Peru 3-1 in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday to overtake five-time champion Brazil for the third place in the South American qualifying zone for South Africa 2010.

Alexis Sanchez scored in the second minute while Humberto Suazo and Matias Fernandez added goals before and after half time to seal Chile's first victory against Peru in Lima in 24 years.

Peru, in last place in the continental qualifying, had problems creating opportunities against the Chileans, with its only goal in the 33rd minute through forward John Fano.

After Sanchez' early goal, Chile stunned Peru with two more from Suazo in the 31st minute and Fernandez in the 69th minute.

Peru's star player Juan Vargas was sent off in the 52nd minute after receiving two yellow cards.

With the victory, Chile moved into third place with 19 points. Argentina also has 19 points after beating Venezuela 4-0 on Saturday but has a better goal differential. Paraguay leads the tournament with 23 points.
