      It started with such promise, a couple of chances to each side, then... nothing.

      Serbia on paper are very good and Costa Rica was a major surprise in 2014, I was also expecting more from this match so far

      Good finish by Kolarov from the free kick but not much of a good game.

      Good to see Coutinho in midfield on the left rather than right  forward!

      Hoping for the Swiss to win, and win big, here's hoping!

      Brazil comfortable - quite leisurely and lovely so far. Switzerland being Switzerland ie perennial no marks at these competitions.

      They win a lot of games against lesser opposition and played weak teams in friendlies.

      That might explain their farcical progress in the play offs against Northern Ireland.

      It's striking how experienced a lot of this Brazil side is yet they still feel like a 'new' side.

      Commentators didn't seem to pick up on it, but a Swiss player blasted the ball into Silva's face and play was stopped.
      Switzerland kicked the ball out and Brazil did not give the ball back to Switzerland. Was I missing something there?

      All to do with qualifying games & friendlies.

      Russia are something like 50th in the rankings because of lack of qualifying games and only playing friendlies.

      Brazil looking the more comfortable team on the ball, should score a couple more in the 2nd half. The Swiss look poor.

      Yet a standard goal for Coutinho.

      Brazil haven't got out of second gear since scoring.
