Livescore: Result of Brazil vs Switzerland

Brazil vs Switzerland

Switzerland's Steven Zuber heads the equaliser in a 1-1 draw with World Cup favourites Brazil.

The South American powerhouse is a perennial contender and this campaign they certainly have the assets in all thirds to emerge victorious.

Add Brazil to the list of World Cup contenders that ran into a roadblock in the opening match of the tournament. Switzerland won't be a breeze, even if its No. 6 position in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings is a touch lofty.

The World Cup 2018 Brazil vs Switzerland match begins at 11:30 pm (IST).

In their first World Cup game since famously losing 7-1 to Germany in the semi-final in Rio four years ago, Brazil took their time to warm up.

However, Tite's men soon settled and after Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer had got his fingertips to Paulinho's close-range shot following an exchange of passes between Coutinho and Neymar, they took the lead in style with 20 minutes gone.

Brazil's reaction was concerted as Coutinho saw two shots blocked in quick succession before Neymar's 58th-minute shot was deflected into the side-netting. The match was pretty much all Brazil from the beginning, but outside of its lone goal, the ball just didn't want to go in.

The Mexican referee Cesar Arturo Ramos made a clear and obvious error in not penalising the foul.

Brazil hasn't lost in the group stage since a 1998 setback against Norway, going 10-0-2 since. This was the first mistake by the technology at the World Cup and it was a bad one. If they are to do so, they'll need a few moments of magic from their star winger Xherdan Shaqiri, as well as top-level performances from players like Granit Xhaka and Ricardo Rodriguez. At times, he linked encouragingly with Neymar, which bodes well for the remainder of the tournament.
