- The VAR annulled a goal to Vinicius Jr for advanced position
Brazil defeated Switzerland 1-0 in the last 10 minutes of the match that was held at the 974 Stadium for Group G and that ensures the classification of the canarinha to the round of 16. The only goal of the game came with a combination of passes that left the ball served to Casemiro who beat Yan Sommer with his right foot.
The five-time world champion had a hard time getting spaces against a Swiss team that saved Xerdan Shaquiri to have a better defensive approach and stop Vinicius, Richarlison and Raphinha.
In the absence of Neymar Jr. due to injury, Vinicius carried the greatest responsibility in attack and was the best player in Brazil. In the first half he had a shot in front of the goal that was saved by Yan Sommer and denied the Brazilians the goal.
In the second half, Brazil switched Lucas Paquetá and Fred to bring on Rodrygo and Bruno Guimaraes. At minute 64, Vinicius Jr opened the account, but the VAR denied it after an advanced position by Richarlison.
Despite the disallowed goal, Brazil kept looking for him and after a Madrid combination between Vinicius and Rodrygo gave Casemiro a pass that he defined with his right foot that Sommer could only watch.
With this victory, Brazil got 6 points out of 6 possible and will face Cameroon on December 2. For its part, Switzerland will face Serbia to fight for a place in the round of 16 of Qatar 2022.
