Five-time champion Brazil held 1-1 by Switzerland in World Cup

Brazil vs Switz

Brazil manager Tite did not attribute his side's failure to win to the physical treatment they received, or the referee's decision not to give a penalty despite Manuel Akanji putting his arms around Gabriel Jesus in the box.

Defender Thiago Silva, who plays his domestic football with Paris Saint-Germain, said the players were left a little confused as to what they could say to the referee.

In revitalising the side and finding the right blend, he ensured they were the first South American side to reach Russian Federation 2018.

Brazil looked comfortable after Philippe Coutinho's brilliant first-half opener, dominating play against a limited Swiss side that looked to frustrate them from the off.

Tite said he would not make excuses for the disappointing scoreline. "He will not go through any specific treatment, we are not anxious".

Switzerland were unable to really threaten the opposing goal and were more conspicuous with their tough challenges on the Brazilian playmakers with Neymar spending his fair share of time on the ground grabbing various parts of his body.

"Sometimes, there is a lack of recognition and that is a pity". "It was a good goal, but for me it was more important that we won".

Three thoughts from a frustrating 1-1 draw for Brazil against Switzerland. While the performance of the Latin American favourite team led to a lot of debate online, Switzerland's rough defence to Brazil's star players, Neymar Jr also got people talking on the virtual world.

"In the first half we encountered some difficulties, we were not able to put into practice what we wanted, and we invited the opponent to be unsafe", he said.

"In the second half, I told them to remain calm, focused, believe in ourselves and try and push higher up on the pitch and create possibilities and opportunities to score, and that's what we did".

Tite's side will now face Costa Rica and Serbia to guarantee the top spot in the group, although ironically, after Germany's earlier loss, finishing first might mean playing the defending champions in the second round.
