Steven Zuber denies Brazil opening win as Switzerland secure a point

Neymar Shaqiri Brazil Switzerland 2018

Following Sunday's results, Serbia occupy top spot in Group E, followed by Brazil and Switzerland respectively, while Costa Rica sit bottom.

Despite Neymar's best efforts, Brazil lacked a spark in the final third until the closing stages where they should have bagged a victor.

The last game that Brazil played was the 7-1 defeat at the feet of Germany, a game where their star player Neymar was out due to injury.

The competition looks wide-open with only one of the big-hitters-France-having managed a win.

The bright spot of Brazil's performance was Coutinho's trademark strike.

However, Brazil failed to build on their lead as Thiago Silva and Jesus headed off target from unsafe corners and were made to pay early in the second-half.




Coutinho's ability to score from range adds another attacking dimension to Tite's team, particularly when Brazil are finding it hard to break down defensively organized teams.

"I hope they start looking up and taking notice of us and taking us seriously", said Petkovic, whose side held Spain to the same score in a warm-up friendly.

Brazil's first scoring chance came ten minutes later when a low left-sided cross from Neymar was met by Paulinho, but he scuffed his shot inches wide from only a couple of yards out.

It's a fantastic, golden point for Switzerland.
