Look back Brazil 1-1 Switzerland: Samba is disappointed with the fans!
Despite the early goals, but in the end Brazil only 1-1 draw. It was a disappointing performance of the Green and Yellow, especially Neymar, who played very personally. Brazil has yet to show they are worthy of being the No.1 candidate in the 2018 World Cup.
Brazil: Coutinho (20′)
Switzerland: Zuber (50′)
Brazil is highly regarded ahead of the 2018 World Cup. However, Switzerland does not show any lack of confidence when faced with the No. 1 candidate for the world championship. In the first 10 minutes, the European representatives played fair with Brazil.

However, with so many stars in the squad, along with individual surpassing techniques, the samba dancers gradually dominated the game. The pressure was started by the army of coach Tite created.
Minute 12, the first dangerous opportunity created by Brazil. Right in the penalty area, Paulinho shot in close range but goalkeeper Sommer still use five fingers to save to Switzerland. Under the pressure of Brazil, what came to have come. 20 minutes, Coutinho has the ball near the penalty area and the left wing in the direction of attack.
No one accompanied Coutinho and the midfielder kicked the ball right foot, put the ball into the far corner, open the scoring for Brazil. It was a beautiful goal from Coutinho. He scored the way he did many times in Liverpool and Barcelona. Switzerland was wrong to let Coutinho have too much time and space in his preferred position.
After the first goal, Brazil slow kick. They wait for Switzerland to make mistakes. As a result, the European champions hold more balls. However, the ability of the Swiss attack is quite limited. They did not make the ball really dangerous on the goal keeper Alisson.
In the second half, the game was no better with Switzerland. Even so, surprise is created. From the corner of the corner 50 minutes, Zuber came close to equalizing the 1-1 draw for Switzerland. However, the referee should not recognize this goal. Because before the first hit, Zuber fouled Miranda.
At the moment, Brazil push the pace of the game. And they began to create opportunities. On 60 minutes, Neymar’s pass for Coutinho was in the unassigned position. But Coutinho’s shot to eat out the cheek and go sidelong.
In two minutes 90 and 91, two dangerous opportunities were created by Brazil but Firmino did not win the Sommer goalkeeper and Miranda narrowed the column narrowly right next to the penalty.
The 1-1 draw is kept until the end of the game. This is a disappointing result for Brazil. They were quite subjective despite the early lead. Tite’s team has yet to see them qualify as the No. 1 World Champion for the 2018 World Cup.
