They had to settle for a point and joined fellow tournament favourites Germany, Spain and Argentina in failing to win their first game. "There was a lot of pressure and anxiety on the players and that translated into the finishes that were not precise".

"We had some good, clean situations but could have been more precise".

They restored parity in the 50th minute when Steven Zuber found the back of the net following a well worked corner routine that completely caught out the Brazilians.

Phillipe Coutinho, who opened the scoring against Switzerland, said Brazil expect to be targeted by opponents.

Brazil and Switzerland share second place, having one point each. If he interpreted that it wasn't a penalty, life is like that.

"I spoke to Miranda and he said, "When he pushed me I should have fallen" and I said: 'No!"

Brazil manager Tite indicated on Saturday that Neymar was not 100% heading into the game but was still fit enough to play. "It's normal to do it after the match", team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said. "He will not go through any specific treatment, we are not anxious".

"Sometimes, there is a lack of recognition and that is a pity". Many in Brazil have been obsessively focused on his recovery, fretting over the national team's promise to overcome its humiliating 7-1 loss to Germany in the 2014 semifinals. But we can improve, we can play better.

"I do have a lot of time for Bobby Firmino, I think he's excellent".

"In the first half we encountered some difficulties, we were not able to put into practice what we wanted, and we invited the opponent to be unsafe", he said. I could hardly believe that it was not suggested to him that he do so.

The result means that Serbia lead Group E after beating Costa Rica 1-0 earlier in the day.

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.
