Without Neymar and Danilo?! Ill take this win! Our defense is a wall. One to the next round!


ArthurBem

Vini not passing in plays like [this](https://imgur.com/a/HdjBroo) worries me a bit ngl, he seems to hog the ball a bit too much imo but w/e good game


enzohn

Ativa o Windows aí, fião.


ArthurBem

kkkkk no


BalmungOfAzureSky

Yeah that was really upsetting. Got greedy


countryroad_

I didn’t watch the match because i was sleeping lol so did brazil defend well today or swiss attack just wasn’t good? question


FlatwormSweet9774

Brazil defended well again. It was a little bit like the game vs Serbia


anker_beer

Both


SH1591

No side is going to play well for all 7 games (presuming they get to the final), being able to grind out wins when not at your best is important


lucianorc2

Tough game indeed, gladly we won. First time winning against the Swiss in world cup matches. Round of 16 awaiting 😨🤒

trolig

What? He is our best chance at creating any play. Sure he holds on to the ball too long sometimes but I'll take it.


artuhr

Vini initiated the 3 goals we made


FiniteIncantation

Swiss had zero shots on goal. They played defensively and had zero offense. They cannot win a world cup like that. Several passes that went to no one or to Brazil. Constant kickbacks to the goalie. The only thing I can say is Shaqiri was missing from the line up and he is a big part of their offense.


enzohn

>They cannot win a world cup like that. Who thinks they can win, though, honestly speaking? There are levels to the game


FiniteIncantation

I am just saying.


Maxie_Glutie

Seems like they were trying to have a draw with Brazil and beat an easier Serbian opponent next match


swordfishrenegade

Congrats to Brazil on their 2-0 victory


FiniteIncantation

You do realize that the whole reason there is an offsides rule is to stop someone from just hanging out near the opponents goal which is exactly what happened here.


swordfishrenegade

Right, but he wasn’t expecting to receive a pass, and was actively running toward center field.


enzohn

Ikr. Offside rule to someone running backwards is kinda stupid if you stop to think about it.


[deleted]

Brazil didn't have the best of displays but they still leave the match as deserved winners, Switzerland did absolutely nothing the whole match and was downright painful to watch. I'm not sure if they were afraid of Brazil or if it was just a tactical debacle, but they were pretty much nowhere from start to finish.


Smack_a_Janny_

Today showed how good Brazil are defensively. Silva made some crucial blocks and Militao was solid at RB. Also thought Rodrygo was quality when he came on and showed how good of a number ten he was. I still think Switzerland are the second best team in the group but I expect fireworks for that Serbia game.


LanatusGG

Swiss side tried too hard to draw the game. It is the WC for god sake.


hombre_loco_mffl

That's exactly why they tried. A draw against Brazil and another against Serbia and they'd be qualified.


JashinSama46

Draw against Serbia is still enough (assuming Cameroon doesn't go crazy and beat Brazil)


hombre_loco_mffl

Switzerland played it's game, that was pretty much expected. Neymar's absence was felt, but Bruno Guimarães had a solid role in the 2nd half dictating the middlefield. Ugly win, but a win nonetheless.


cstr23

The ref was terrible, Switzerland didn't come to play football, not a single yellow card given out. Bruno Guimaraes deserves to be in Fred's place, he gave Casemiro so much freedom to play he ended up scoring the winner.


Sy___

I feel like Bruno played really well. But with 4 man on the attacking side. Dont you think we need some one a little more defensive? Not sure if buno can do that job


ralmeida

> not a single yellow card given out. 50' Yellow Card for F. Rieder (Switzerland)


Kult_Of_Gorthaur

Serbia really kicked Brazil in the nuts in that last match. Brazil had scored two goals in the 62nd and 73rd minute during their match with Serbia. Are we seeing a potentially neutralized Brazil for the duration of this Cup? Even the commentators were saying they played badly.


trolig

Have you watched Brazil play before this tournament? 60 minute mark is when we start to really play. Wearing down the opponent for an hour is our specialty.


hombre_loco_mffl

Brazil didn't have it's best showing, but what do you expect against a team that is putting it's 11 players in it's defensive field? Every single game that goes like this is pretty hard for the offense - especially considering we were missing Neymar. And keep in mind Switzerland is a pretty physical team and even though UEFA group C wasn't the best they still only allowed two goals in 8 matches.


Low-Barracuda-2393

Not the best match but solid win. It’s tough to score against Switzerland. Beautiful goal by Casemiro! He deserves it. Congrats Braziillllll ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


julietscupid

Brazil could’ve played so much better. They kept making the same attack mistake (they’d attack in the middle where they were surrounded by 4-5 Swiss players). I do think Switzerland played to its highest capacity, and did a good job.


thegodarcos

Though Brazil won. But akanji was so so good Switzerland's best player tonight. Man city are really lucky to have him.


RedWhacker

Will we see Dani Alves get some minutes against Cameroon? I certainly hope so.


BalmungOfAzureSky

Possibly. We definitely should rest our players and give some people a chance


buddy-somebody

Fuck a flopping Brazilian.


Folkiren

Brazil did not play well, but still dominated the game and won against a very strong team. An inspired Brazil can definitely win it all this time.


thegodarcos

Good game. Brazil look really solid.their midfielder attack defense... Everything is 🔥🔥🔥


KatakuriTrapstar

Alisson still not working


maddabattacola

In my heart, Brazil won 2-0


[deleted]

Brazilian here. Love you man 🙏


anonymousloverboy

Teams that come to the World Cup just to sit back and go for a goalless draw can get fucked Well done Brazil


TimUpson

as a Swiss suffering through this, I think they did as much as they thought they could, but they could have done more for sure. But of course they knew that they would be more vulnerable like that...


anonymousloverboy

You beat France last year in the Euros, you shouldn’t be playing like Albania


TimUpson

yes I know thats why it's so frustrating, let's see against Serbia


BalmungOfAzureSky

Some people crucified me for saying this. I agree 110%


lXGCXl

I am glad Brazil won. The way Switzerland play was painful to watch. I still don't understand about the offside. Congratulations Brazil fans!


quepas

Yeah, if you don’t know that it’s Richarlison who’s flagged, it’s hard to figure out. From an offside position, he ran pretty far to try to intercept a pass, so he got involved in the play even though he didn’t touch the ball.


[deleted]

Thanks 🙏


thegodarcos

Richarlison was offside


deliquent_portal

Mid game… sadly
