Neymar misses Brazil World Cup training

Marcelo and Brazil team-mates

Of course we didn't want to draw, but we also didn't lose. We have to be cooler, a little more precise.

Now, Serbia leads Group E with three points.

The confederation said on Tuesday (NZT) "these two actions constitute. clear errors by the referee, which thus should form part of the reviewable decisions that are analysed through VAR".

"I put it down to stress, first-match nerves, that's true for me too". "We're talking about a World Cup so everybody will try to defend their game".

They embarrassingly lost 7-1 to Germany in the semi-final of the 2014 World Cup and lost the 3-0 to the Netherlands in the third-place game.

This goal was the sixth for Switzerland (four goals, two assists) that Zuber directly has been involved in over his last six games for the national squad.

On the day when holders Germany were shocked 1-0 by Mexico, Brazil's tag as pre-tournament favourites looked justified in a dominant first-half capped by Philippe Coutinho's wonder strike to open the scoring.

A stunning individual run and finish on his return in a pre-tournament friendly against Croatia and his 55th global goal against Austria a week later appeared to quash fears over his fitness.

Brazil had got off to the flawless start when Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho curled home a superb 20th-minute opener, but the Swiss responded with a display of real character and got their reward, despite a series of late scares, courtesy of Zuber's header.

But coach Tite acknowledged his side could have played better.

Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka, AC Milan's Ricardo Rodriguez, and Benfica striker Haris Seferovic all featured in the winning Switzerland team nine years ago.

Brazil made too many mistakes with the ball, missing easy passes throughout the field and failing to capitalize on the chances it created, especially in the second half after conceding the equalizer.

"They marked him very tightly throughout the game and made it very hard for him".

However the PSG forward said it was nothing serious to worry about.

But the spotlight will also be on Coutinho, whose performance against Switzerland contrasted with Neymar's lackluster showing.

Neymar, who missed the 2014 moment-to-be forgotten with a broken bone in his back, was able to play even though coach Tite said Saturday he was not "100 percent" fit.
