Brazil need solutions after coming unstuck against Swiss

Sommer needs to up their game for a not-so Sombre result

"We know there is another two hard games but we don't fear anybody", the Stoke star said. "Life goes on. We drew, we didn't lose", the Manchester City forward said.

Petkovic said it was time the world took notice of his team, which is sixth in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings and won nine of its 10 qualifying matches to reach its fourth straight World Cup.

Brazil travelled to Russian Federation after a triumphant set of results in their warm-up matches but were disappointing in their Group E opener on Sunday as a very solid Swiss side showed why they are now sixth in the FIFA rankings, reports Xinhua news agency. "Now we need to think about the next match". "I practiced set pieces, and this was enough for three points".

"The action characterises a clear foul, which resulted in an undisputable advantage for Mr. Zuber, since Mr. Miranda was unable to defend and play the ball".

Brazil meet Costa Rica on Friday and will hope Neymar is available to fire them to a first victory of the tournament.

Egypt boss Cuper confirms Salah absence due to fitness worries
I have seen many great players like (Lionel) Messi and (Diego) Maradona not living up to their potential in matches . Let's be real: there's a very strong chance you're only on this page to see if Salah is in the starting lineup.

They remain haunted by a 7-1 loss to the eventual-champion Germany in the 2014 World Cup semifinals, followed by a 3-0 defeat against the Netherlands in the third-place playoff, both devastating losses in front of their home crowd.

The Brazilians complained of two key refereeing decisions that went against the five-time champions Sunday: A push on Miranda that aided Switzerland's goal, and a no-call they felt should have produced a penalty.

- Switzerland have lost only one match, away to Portugal in the World Cup qualifiers, since Euro 2016.

Vladimir Petkovic's men's focus on Neymar - who was fouled 10 times across 96 minutes - allowed his team-mates a bit of extra space and Philippe Coutinho took the opportunity to show what he is capable of in what was his World Cup debut.

"Now we must keep our heads down, as we want to win our next game".

Playing in their fourth consecutive World Cup, the Swiss are aiming for a spot in the quarterfinals.

But coach Tite acknowledged his side could have played better.

"No, with this team, it will not be like eight years ago", he said. He was limping when he talked to reporters after the match but said it was nothing serious.

"The Serbs are a great team with players who have been together for a couple of years already".

Petkovic, meanwhile, has been impressed by Brazil's progress under Tite, but the Switzerland coach has no intention of affording the South American heavyweights an easy ride next to the banks of the Don River.

Higher rates in India can derail economic growth, which still is not on strong footing and can be negative for the equity market. In April, the closely-watched 10-year Treasury yield rose above the key level of 3% for the first time since 2014 .

A fully fit Neymar will be needed if Brazil can't turn things around and arrive for the deciding match against Serbia on the brink of elimination.
