For the second date of Group G of the group stage of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, Brazil defeated Switzerland 1-0 with a great goal from Casemiro at minute 83 that qualified Tité’s team for the round of 16 with an early date. This result will allow Brazil to rest some of its starters in the duel against Cameroon on the last day of the group. Despite the defeat, it is up to Switzerland to advance to the next round when they face Serbia on the final day.
It was a disputed match in which the Europeans waited in their field for the Tite team that tried throughout the entire game but that was fine when it came to finishing the play against the goal of the Helvetians but that opened with a play Isolated Manchester United midfielder. It should be noted that the Verdeamarela had a goal canceled due to an advanced position by Richarlison prior to the definition of Vinicius Jr.
Yann Sommer and the Swiss centre-backs.
Despite the defeat, the Swiss goalkeeper was one of the figures of the match and every time he had to intervene in the game he did it correctly and correctly. He couldn’t do anything in Brazil’s goal as the ball slipped into one of the corners of the goal. In addition, he was very confident with the ball at his feet. While Manuel Akanji and Nico Elvedi dominated the passing game, they didn’t let Richarlison influence the creation of the Brazilian game or have a scoring opportunity. They always had good interventions in the game and were vital for Switzerland to have a chance of winning the game and not being thrashed.
The Brazilian insistence in search of the goal
From the first minute of the match, the team led by Tité searched for the rival goal and generated multiple goal situations that caused Sommer to be one of the figures of the match. Above all, with this game plan, Vinicius’s performance stood out, for whenever he touched the ball he unbalanced and created danger for the Swiss box. In addition, the changes prompted the team to continue insisting.
Tité’s team felt the absence of its best player since, in addition to leadership and dribbling, it lost hierarchy and daring. Vinicius Jr, his natural replacement on the left wing, did not make a difference despite being constantly sought by his teammates.
The null attack of Switzerland
Focused on defending and containing all the onslaughts of the South American team, the European team forgot to attack during practically the entire match since Breel Embolo was very alone up front and could not maintain possession of the ball for the arrival of his teammates. They couldn’t even intimidate Alisson Becker with a cross.
