- Brazil have won only one of their last seven World Cup matches against European opposition (D2 L4), a 3-1 win over Croatia in the opening match of the 2014 World Cup. "It's for the referee to see it. I guess that will be normal [to be fouled regularly], we have to pay attention to it, but that's something normal in football", he told reporters after the match.

Switzerland continued an impressive run in worldwide games, proving their mettle in the 1-1 draw against Brazil.

"We had real difficulties in the first 40 minutes, I said "let's remain calm, focused and believe in ourselves, push up higher up the pitch and create opportunities to score". The five time champions lost their calm as they failed to extend their lead.

Swiss midfielder Steven Zuber headed his side level five minutes into the second half, leaving the Brazilians protesting in vain amid claims he had pushed defender Miranda as he climbed to meet Xherdan Shaqiri's corner.

The Brazil defeated in that quarter-final included Alisson, Casemiro, Coutinho and Neymar with all seven players from that clash featuring in Sunday's game.

"It has nothing to do with positioning", Tite said of the goal, defending his side from accusations of poor marking for the corner.

"We knew this game wasn't going to be easy".

"The work we have done elevates the expectations, but also brings us peace", he said.

"My expectation of course was to get a victory and of course I'm not happy with the result".

The Swiss boss pointed out that perhaps the result is not as big a surprise as some may think: "I think we get a lack of recognition". Costa Rica so far has none.

"The most important thing is just to qualify", said the Barcelona playmaker.

Coutinho's goal was world-class and could not have been stopped even if Switzerland had two keepers in between the sticks, but the opener came after a lapse of concentration from the Swiss side, something that they rarely do.

"Against a hard and strong opponent you need to be realistic and sometimes you play passes without thinking too much but I think the team has shown great determination and true spirit".
