Brazil complain to FIFA over non-use of VAR technology

Switzerland restricted Jesus to no shots on target and no chances created, while they paid close attention to Neymar, constantly fouling him and disrupting Brazil's rhythm. But Tite's side failed to build further momentum, as Neymar was frequently stopped in his tracks by tactical fouls - a total of 10, the most since England's Alan Shearer was fouled 11 times against Tunisia on June 15, 1998 - from Vladimir Petkovic's side.

To check the strength of character of the Brazilian national team, the Swiss decided at the beginning of the second half when after a corner kick, midfielder of the German "Hoffenheim" Steven Zuber head sent the ball into the net of Alison.

"It was a foul", Tite said. "It was a foul". "I put it down to stress, first match nerves, that's true for me too", the Brazil boss said.

"We have the quality to win games and we go into every game to try to win".

"Yes, Switzerland hit us a lot. but all matches will be like this, I guess", Coutinho told reporters. "There is some more work to be done and then be more effective with the finishes".

Serbia leads Group E after its 1-0 victory over Costa Rica.

"It's not up to me, there are three professionals working there", he said, per Reuters (h/t ESPN FC).


The coach of the Selecao was adamant Switzerland's goal should have been ruled out by referee Cesar Ramos, and Neymar agreed with that assessment.

"You should not pressure the referee; there is a process and a system in place, there are people responsible and you have to be fair, but the push on Miranda was very clear: perhaps you could interpret the penalty appeal, but the Miranda moment looked very clear", he said.

Neymar claims Zuber pushed Miranda before scoring Switzerland's equalizer.

Since Tite took over, Brazil has lost only once in 21 matches and was the first of 31 teams to qualify for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

The guys give their take on Neymar constantly going to ground, how VAR has fared and more things from the Twittersphere.

ROSTOV-ON-DON: Switzerland's midfielder Steven Zuber (L) scores against Brazil's goalkeeper Alisson during their Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group E match. "Sometimes there is a lack of recognition (in Switzerland's ability) and I think that's a pity because this team really believes in itself and can achieve results".

Credit must be given to Ambassador Michaelsen Den Hartog, who had said before the match that Switzerland would have made it hard for his team to win.
