Casemiro, a flash in the night

The Brazilian midfielder will long remember this World Cup match against Switzerland.

More accustomed to playing the men in the shadows, the Manchester United player lit up this meeting in the 83rd minute.

Taking advantage of a nice delivery from Rodrygo, he armed a splendid half-volley recovery to deceive Sommer.

A class gesture that liberated Brazil.

Vinicius wore out the Swiss defense

The Brazilian winger was undoubtedly the other big man in this match.

Twirling, he gained momentum in this match by putting the Swiss side Widmer in great difficulty, who had to give up his place before the end.

Author of the best opportunity of the first act, he then saw his goal denied in the heart of the second for a prior offside from Richarlison (64th).

But he was an actor of the Brazilian goal by providing the pass for Rodrygo, author of the decisive discount.

Tite's good coaching

Seeing his team sputtering their football, Tite made the right changes to wake them up.

Quickly replacing Paqueta, disappointing, at the break, he then brought more consistency to his midfield by bringing in Bruno Guimaraes.

Finally about percussion with Antony and Rodrygo.

Paying choices that have worn out Switzerland well.


A very disappointing Switzerland

After its victory against Cameroon (1-0), one would have thought that Switzerland would approach this meeting uninhibited.

Except that the Nati did not show anything good in this meeting.

Busy above all to defend, she only suffered and was particularly clumsy when it came to countering and ensuring offensive transitions.

A rough game and balls returned to the opponent which ended up exhausting the Swiss team, which did not target any shots in this match.

Paqueta, too erased

Chosen to support Richarlison in a position similar to Neymar, Lucas Paqueta was expected to lead the Brazilian game, give it life.

Except that in the first period, the former Lyonnais seemed lost on the field.

Despite a lot of effort, he was never able to combine properly with his partners and lost far too many balls.

Tite also logically took it out at the break.
