82 minutes lasted the resistance of the brave Switzerland, who only gave in to a powerful shot from Casemiro. Brazil won by the minimum (1-0) and is already in the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar 2022.
Europeans and South Americans met today at the 974 Stadium for the second date of Group G.
Switzerland came out to play as equals and stood solidly in all its lines Y; Despite having possession of the ball against him, he knew how to bring danger to the Brazilian goal in the few (2) opportunities that he had throughout the first stage.
A first period certainly dominated by Brazil, who pulled the quick Vinicius Jr. to give dynamism to his game in the heartfelt absence of his main reference, Neymar Jr.
It was not difficult for Brazil to spin situations, but it did not find the final stitch eitheras a result of the rude mark imposed on his ambitious 9, Richarlison, a situation that was maintained until the complementary entry.
By 57′ Brazil already had Bruno Guimaraes, Rodrygo, Raphina and Antony and tilted the court in the direction of the goal defended by Yann Sommergiving a new notice with the goal canceled (via VAR) to Vinicius Jr. for off side.
Switzerland remained patient in defensive zone and he released sporadic, but sharp, incursions into the opposite field. He gave up the ball and the initiativeand took care of order, which ended up exasperating a rival delivered to the attack.
It seemed that the game was going with a distribution of points, but Casemiro, who at that point was already another striker, found a ball served on a tray to hit it straight away and make it 1-0 (82′).
There was no Swiss reaction.
but completely naked #casemiro.
