Brazil beat Switzerland to secure round of 16 spot

Brazil once again made history recording 17th win in group stages of the World Cup after beating Switzerland and securing a spot in the round of 16.

After a goalless first half, the Brazilian boys looked struggling after losing Neymar through injury and forced to bring in Rodrygo in his place.

They were however aware of the danger posed by Switzerland given two draws in their last two encounters with the last one being a 1-1 draw.

Barcelona’s Raphinha was the first one to pass the ball to Vinicius Jr who shot it directly to Yann Sommer who made an easy save. On the other end, Ruben Vargas posed great threat whenever he found spaces between the Brazil defense.

The Real Madrid winger was at it again moving the ball past sliding Nico Elvedi  before beating Sommer and into the back of the net. The goal was however ruled offside after review.

A moment of brilliance from Manchester United’s Casemiro quickly converted a Rodrygo’s flick into the back of the net after hitting Akanji on the way in.
