Brazil-Switzerland: Casemiro sends the Seleção to the round of 16


Short victory for Brazil against Switzerland, qualified for the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar (1-0).

Brazil had worn out Switzerland.

Dominating throughout the meeting, the Brazilians waited for the last moments to validate a long-awaited success (1-0).

But they will have battled after a suspenseful meeting, even if it was more disappointing than expected.

Between a messy Brazilian team in possession of the ball and the shy Swiss who were above all focused on defending well, the meeting initially lacked flavor.

Only Vinicius animated the first 45 minutes on a strike well repelled by Sommer (27th), while Brazil continued to be little impactful after the break.

Casemiro's release

We had to wait for the entries of Antony and Rodrygo to bring a little more madness to the ranks of the Seleção.

On the back foot, Switzerland finally gave in.

After a goal from Vinicius disallowed for offside beforehand (64th), Brazil found the fault on a magnificent goal signed Casemiro, author of a splendid recovery after a no less perfect delivery from Rodrygo (1-0, 83rd ).

The Nati could abdicate, Rodrygo even passing close to knockout twice (87th, 90th + 4).

Tite's men are qualified for the round of 16 and will be able to manage their 3rd group meeting while waiting for a hypothetical return from Neymar.
