It was a frustrating evening for Brazil, who drew 1-1 with Switzerland in their 2018 FIFA World Cup, Group E match at the Rostov Arena on Sunday.

Switzerland had the first shot on goal in the third minute when a clever right-side ball from Xherdan Shaqiri found Blerim Dzemaili in space inside the box, but he fired just over from ten-yards out.

Brazil’s first scoring chance came ten minutes later when a low left-sided cross from Neymar was met by Paulinho, but he scuffed his shot inches wide from only a couple of yards out.

The South Americans continued to dictate terms after that and took the lead in the 20th minute when Philippe Coutinho curled a spectacular 22-yard effort into the top corner, 1-0.

The game slowed down a bit after the opening goal as Switzerland controlled the flow of the game and Brazil seemed content to sit back in defence.

Still, despite all their possession the European side could not create any significant goal scoring chances and entered the half time break trailing by a goal.

Five minutes into the second half, Switzerland did manage to equalise when Steven Zuber headed home a corner-kick from a four-yards out, 1-1.

Brazil upped the tempo after that but failed to find the right final pass to create a decent scoring opportunity.

The next real chance came in the 70th minute when a clever pass from Neymar over the top of the Switzerland defence found Coutinho in space eight-yards out, but he sliced his effort wide of goal.

Roberto Firminho went close for Brazil again in the 82nd minute when he drove into the box from the right, but he fired his ten-yard shot from an acute angle inches over the crossbar.

Brazil threw players forward in the dying minutes of the match and had numerous goal scoring chances, but they could not find the back of the net as Switzerland stood firm to earn a point as the match ended all-square.

Following Sunday's results, Serbia occupy top spot in Group E, followed by Brazil and Switzerland respectively, while Costa Rica sit bottom.
