The Match is played in Stadium 974 (Mon, Nov 28, 2022). It’s all done, and Brazil has secured their spot in the round of 16 by squeaking out a victory in a match in which they were performing nowhere near their best. They win all three points thanks to a thundering goal scored by Casemiro with seven minutes remaining in regulation.
If Cameroon wins their match against Brazil, then only a draw will be good enough for Switzerland to advance, while Brazil has already secured its spot in the next round.
Full Time – Brazil 1 – 0 Switzerland
- 64 Minutes of 2nd Half – Offside given against Brazil. The Brazilians are confident they’ve finally won this round. Casemiro baits the Swiss defense into a misstep, and Vinicius bursts through the opening with a dazzling through ball.
Although Vinicius timed his run well, the goal was disallowed because Richarlison, who didn’t touch the ball but was obviously participating in the action, returned from an offside position.
- 83 Minutes of the 2nd Half – Casemiro finally scores, assisted by Rodrygo. Casemiro sends the ball flying into the far corner on a half-volley after it takes one bounce in the box off of Vinicius’s inside pass and Rodrygo’s flick-on. What an outstanding finish at a crucial time. That seals the deal for Brazil.
