Serbia vs Brazil match preview
Xherdan Shaqiri’s 90th-minute strike for Switzerland dealt Serbia a late blow in their hopes of reaching the Round of 16 as they fell into third place in Group E.
The result leaves the group very tightly congested, although for Brazil and Switzerland, their own World Cup destiny remains in their own hands.
Mladen Krstajic’s side must now defeat Brazil in order to remain in the competition, with their goal difference inferior to Switzerland’s.
With the expectancy of his whole nation upon his shoulders, Neymar’s strike against Costa Rica looks set to have sent Selecao into the knockout stages.
Mexico look set to clinch top spot in Group F, whilst second place could go to Germany, meaning 1st in Group E could potentially face a very tricky fixture in the Round of 16 against the reigning world champions.
How good are this Brazil side?
One of the early questions at any World Cup is just how good are Brazil?
The five time winners look at past competitions in a black and white manner. The ones they won and those they lost.
Reaching a semi-final or final is fine for some nations. Brazil simply have to win the World Cup.
This has been accentuated by that 7-1 semi-final defeat to Germany on home soil last time out.
There is little doubt that this Brazil team is still coming to grips with that loss and this World Cup.
Yet, the signs are good with the draw against Switzerland looking better after the second set of games. And, a hard fought late win over Costa Rica undoubtedly leaving Brazil in good shape.
Philippe Coutinho’s brilliant form and Neymar’s improving performances after a lengthy lay-off should give Brazil fans plenty of hope.
