Brazil lost World Cup opener due to anxiety not Switzerland's rough tactics

However, Switzerland, who had looked toothless throughout the first half, got back on level terms five minutes into the second period when Zuber rose unmarked to head home a corner kick.
Brazil entered Sunday's Group E game against Switzerland having won 16 of their last 18 opening matches at the World Cup, but the Brazilians were unable to secure three points in a 1-1 draw with the Swiss in Russian Federation. Brazil's next game is on Friday against Costa Rica, who lost 1-0 to Serbia in their opener.
Former Manchester United defender Ashley Westwood, however, believes Brazil might've gotten slightly unlucky on the night.
"There's the video referee, they've seen it, but they did not think it was for that".
Brazil coach Tite was not a happy man after his side started the FIFA World Cup 2018 campaign with a draw against Switzerland in Rostov-On-Don on Sunday.
Westwood reckoned that both instances could've gone in Brazil's favour had the referee opted to use VAR. Brazil and Switzerland are tied in second place with a point apiece, while Costa Rica is at the bottom with zero points.
Coutinho had been handed a central role behind Neymar, on his first competitive game for four months, Gabriel Jesus and Willian in a line-up filled with attacking intent from coach Tite.
Brazil would go on to lose 7-1 to Germany in the semi-final without Neymar - one of the most humbling defeats in the competition's history.
Despite taking the lead through Philippe Coutinho's stunning strike in the 20th minute, the Brazilian midfielders did not enjoy the upper-hand in the middle of the park for the majority of the game.
Barcelona's record signing picked up a loose ball on the edge of the area and in trademark fashion bent the ball crashing in off Sommer's far post.
However, Brazil failed to build on their lead as Thiago Silva and Jesus headed off target from risky corners and were made to pay early in the second-half. Coutinho had Brazil's best chance after the break but shot wide.
Brazil always looked in control until they ceded a corner and Zuber took full advantage of their collective lapse of concentration to level.
