Neymar Shaqiri Brazil Switzerland 2018

Just 19 minutes in to Brazil's opening match against Switzerland, star midfielder Philippe Coutinho did this...

Switzerland battled back from a goal down to earn a point in a 1-1 draw with Brazil as the two teams opened Group E play at Rostov Arena on Sunday.

Mentally the Brazilians need to flush the 7-1 blowout loss to Germany in the 2014 World Cup semifinal out of their minds and come in fresh to start a new run.

Danilo has kept his place at right back following Dani Alves's withdrawal due to injury and Gabriel Jesus was named as expected as centre forward, with Philippe Coutinho joining Casemiro and Paulinho in a midfield trio.

The journalist had been given five security guards by the government after a murder attempt in 2000. Bukhari, who was editor of Rising Kashmir , was shot dead by unidentified men Thursday evening.

Brazil get their World Cup started with what is probably their toughest match in the group stage against Switzerland. The only Swiss man in there, Steven Zuber, has a free header.

Switzerland drew level only four minutes into the second half when a corner from Shaqiri found Zuber unmarked on the edge of the six-yard box and he had the simple task of heading the ball beyond Alisson and high into the centre of the goal.

Brazil had chances to win it late on, but goalkeeper Yann Sommer saved headers by Neymar and substitute Roberto Firmino, and Miranda fired a great chance wide.
