Fifa World Cup 2022: Brazil in the last 16 after defeating Switzerland.
The Brazilian football team, which landed without its star striker Neymar, defeated Switzerland 1-0 in the World Cup match and entered the last 16.
Casemiro scored for Brazil in the 83rd minute after a very boring first half. Five-time champion Brazil has yet to play its last match in Group G, but the team has secured a place in the pre-quarterfinals.
Fifa World Cup 2022: Brazil in the last 16 after defeating Switzerland without Neymar.
Neymar suffered an injury to his right ankle in the first match and is undergoing treatment at the team hotel.
Team doctors have not yet told when he will be able to play or whether he will be able to play or not. After this win, Brazil has six points from two matches and Switzerland has three points.
Serbia and Cameroon have one point each after drawing 3-3. Switzerland will have to beat Serbia in the next match to reach the next stage.
The match between Brazil and Cameroon will depend on whether the Swiss team will be able to reach the next stage even if the match is drawn.
With this win, Brazil’s unbeaten campaign in the group stage became 17 matches, including 14 wins and three draws.
They lost only one of the last 29 group matches against Norway in 1998. Switzerland has lost only two of the last 13 group matches in the World Cup.
Both team did not create many chances in the first half. Without Neymar, the Brazilian team found it difficult to attack Switzerland’s goal. Brazilian coach Tite replaced Neymar with midfielder Fred.
Richarlison, who scored both goals for Brazil in the first match, did not appear in the form today and was replaced by another player in the second half.
Vinicius Junior scored a goal for Brazil in the 64th minute, but after a video referral, he was declared offside.
