Brazil Coach Tite Disappointed With Draw Versus Switzerland

Then at the world Cup 1950 in Brazil, the match ended in a fighting draw - 2:2, and in the last match (sparring in 2013), the Europeans and even defeated five-time world Champions in Basel - 1:0.

The South Americans continued to dictate terms after that and took the lead in the 20th minute when Philippe Coutinho curled a spectacular 22-yard effort into the top corner, 1-0.

Brazil may point to a push by Zuber to free him from his marker but the fact Coutinho's strike remained their only effort on target until 77 minutes points to their struggles in the final third.

The Canarinho appealed for a foul on Miranda, claiming the defender had been shoved in the back by Zuber just prior to converting Shaqiri's corner.

"I was pushed out of the way. You think "don't be too aggressive" because every time they go down it's a foul".

"When you talk about national squad and the World Cup, it's obvious that, if we want to get through it, we'll have to get the points - and we have to get it at the next games".

"We're talking about a World Cup so everybody will try to defend their game".

Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic was delighted with how his side followed his gameplan.

"Of course, neutralizing Neymar was a key ingredient of our game", he added. In 2014, the Brazilian was forced to make an early exit from the World Cup hosted by his own country when a vicious tackle fractured a vertebra in his spine in the quarterfinals against Colombia.

"I am proud of their determination", Petkovic said of his team. "They did, and it worked". Coutinho had Brazil's best chance after the break but shot wide. "We had some great moments and positive moments". "We have two decisive matches ahead of us". Most of the hard tackles were directed at Brazil's talisman striker, Neymar Jr.

"It was a foul", Tite said.

"What happened with Miranda was clear, but it doesn't explain the result", Tite said.

"There was a lot of pressure and it was translated into too much speed in our last move and that means you are not precise", he said in his post-game press conference. "If we were a bit more concentrated, we could have made the goalkeeper work a little more given the number of attempts we had". Neymar missed the semifinal, where Germany handed Brazil the most ignominious defeat in their World Cup history-a 7-1 thrashing.

Costa Rica and Serbia are the other teams in Group E.

Brazil's second match in Group E is against Costa Rica, with the match scheduled to take place on Friday.
