Brazil Coach Tite Disappointed With Draw Versus Switzerland

Brazil Coach Tite Disappointed With Draw Versus Switzerland

The five-time champions were held to a 1-1 draw by Switzerland yesterday, a few hours after four-time champions Germany were beaten by Mexico 1-0.

With 20 minutes gone on Sunday, Coutinho gathered a clearance 25 yards from goal and curled a marvellous shot into the far corner off the post to give the five-times world champions the lead.

Steven Zuber created the space for his header through holding Brazil's Miranda by the arm and then pushing him in the back.

"I was pushed out of the way. But it didn't happen", Miranda said.

"Playing against Brazil and Spain, we demonstrated we could react, that this team always believes in itself and can get results". "He will not go through any specific treatment, we are not anxious".

The first was a push on defender Miranda that aided Switzerland's equaliser, and the second was a no-call that Brazil felt should have produced a penalty on a play involving forward Gabriel Jesus.

Switzerland coach Vladimir Petkovic was delighted with how his side followed his gameplan. He also dismissed charges that Neymar had been treated harshly.

Twitter, of course, could not stay out of the Neymar conversation during Sunday's match. There was no reason for me to play. "I think for us it's a positive because there is not a lot of pressure on us", he said. "They did, and it worked". "It's not up to us players.", he said.

The great and the cruel thing about worldwide football tournaments is their randomness, how single moments can decide games and games can decide campaigns. "But the most important is that we have peace of mind so that we can recover well and go back to Sochi with our families to gear up for the next match".

Brazil has won 17 of its 22 matches since Tite took over as coach in 2016. "Sometimes if there is a lack of recognition that is a pity because we have played very well".

Brazil need to improve on dead balls, said Tite. "I saw it as a very clear situation". If we had more focus, we could have worked their goalkeeper more.

Philippe Coutinho got Tite's side off to a flying start, but they couldn't hang on as the Swiss asserted themselves in the second half.
