On the day when holders Germany were shocked 1-0 by Mexico, Brazil's tag as pre-tournament favourites looked justified in a dominant first-half capped by Philippe Coutinho's wonder strike to open the scoring.

Brazil haven't lost to a European team since their hammering by Germany at the 2014 World Cup, but they were beaten when they last came up against Switzerland in 2013.

But Switzerland stood up to the Selecao with the equalizer in the 50th minute on a Steven Zuber header.

The World Cup 2018 Brazil vs Switzerland match begins at 11:30 pm (IST).

Just 10 minutes later, Switzerland were reeling from a piece of sublime, quintessentially Brazilian skill.

Steven Zuber is ecstatic after tying the game against Brazil.

The South Americans were humiliated 7-1 by Germany in the last game in the tournament when they hosted it four years and will be seeking to make a statement in Russian Federation.

It seemed a matter of time before Brazil's pressure paid dividends and the opener arrived in stunning style on 20 minutes.

Having taken the lead, Brazil slowed the pace of the game down and frustrated Switzerland, whose only subsequent attacking foray before half-time ended disappointingly with Zuber firing a shot straight into Thiago Silva, who headed narrowly over the crossbar at the other end just before the interval.

While it would be a coup for Switzerland to emerge with three points and promising if it could manage a draw, the Swiss have done it before.
