Steven Zuber wagged the ball into the net in the 50 minute from inside the six-yard box and equalised the goals by 1-1.

The South Americans had 20 shots but could only put four on frame, seeing the Swiss hold them in the second half to split one point apiece.

"I guess it was foul", he said.

"I hoped that we would do what we didn't against Portugal, that we would play our game and try to impose our way of playing", he said.

Striker Jesus said the side did not need to change too much for their next game.

"They didn't give up, went the full 90 minutes, never gave up on themselves and when we were able to play forward and press high up, we did it very well indeed". Of course we didn't want to draw, but we also didn't lose.

Brazil drew Sweden 1-1 back then, the same score of its match against Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don on Sunday, when all the hype surrounding Neymar and his teammates turned into disappointment and concern. (C) battles Swiss players Granit Xhaka (L) and Stephan Lichsteiner (R) in 1-1 draw.

Neymar was on the receiving end of no less than 10 fouls during the match - the most of any World Cup player since England's Alan Shearer was fouled 11 times against Tunisia 20 years ago.

The Brazilian Football Confederation is questioning Fifa about the procedures used for video review during Brazil's match against Switzerland at the World Cup.

"I am very proud of my team's discipline, it was everything we talked about", he said.

The result means that Serbia lead Group E after beating Costa Rica 1-0 earlier in the day.

"I can't coach a team who complains. Out of all the teams we are facing, they are the strongest in depth", Tite told a news conference on Saturday.

VAR is making its World Cup bow in Russian Federation, with FIFA stating it should only be used to "correct clear and obvious errors and missed incidents in clearly defined match-changing decisions". "This team can produce more", he said.

A key to Coutinho's good performances with Brazil has been Barcelona teammate Paulinho, the defensive midfielder who has been responsible for giving the playmaker more freedom to help Neymar and the other forwards.
