FIFA World Cup 2018: Brazil vs Switzerland Highlights; Lacklustre Brazil Held To A 1-1 Draw Against Switzerland

World Cup 2018, Brazil vs Switzerland Highlights: Brazil was held to a 1-1 draw against Switzerland at the Rostov Arena after Stevan Zuber cancelled out Philipe Coutinho's wonder strike.


Brazil's magnificent resurgence under Tite is beyond doubt but there remains a sense that the rehabilitation will only truly start with victory over Switzerland in its opening World Cup Group E match.

Selecao's humiliating 7-1 semifinal defeat to Germany on home soil four years ago — an ordeal that rocked a football-mad nation to its core. On Sunday in Rostov, Tite will lead his side into the tournament in a bid to put that horror show behind.

Here are the starting line ups:

Brazil: Alisson, Danilo, Silva, Miranda, Marcelo, Paulinho, Casemiro, Coutinho, Willian, Jesus, Neymar. 

Switzerland: Sommer, Lichtsteiner, Schar, Akanji, Rodríguez, Behrami, Xhaka, Shaqiri, Dzemaili, Zuber, Seferovic.
