World Cup: Brazil Forced to a 1:1 Draw by Switzerland

Football powerhouse, Brazil was today forced to a 1:1 draw by Switzerland. When Philippe Coutinho fired in a marvelous shot in the 20th minute of the match, it appeared the Brazilians would over-run the Swiss.

Switzerland responded in the 50th minute with a powerfully headed goal by Steven Zuber. The match continued with Brazil making a total of 2o attempts at goal, only 4 of which were on target.

Speaking after the match, the Brazilian coach said “Of course I’m not happy with the result. We wanted a victory. But anxiety hit us hard. The pressure was great. [We lacked] precision when there were chances to finish off opportunities. Some of the chances were quite clear-cut and we should have been more precise.”

Brazil will now take on Costa Rica on the 22nd while Switzerland will take on Serbia later the same day.
