  • Brazil coach Tite adored for turning around national team

Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon was called up to five World Cups but played in only four of them, with Gianluca Pagliuca starting for the national side in 1998.

Three thoughts from a frustrating 1-1 draw for Brazil against Switzerland. "What we have to do is replicate it at the World Cup".

The Mexican government reported an artificial quake "possibly due to mass jumping" after the first-half goal during the 35th minute of the 2018 World Cup game against Germany, the defending World Cup champion.

Germany should have equalised in the second half were they dominated play but could not convert any of their 25 shots at goal they had.

Serbia beat Costa Rica 1-0 thanks to a brilliant Aleksandar Kolarov free-kick in Samara in the first game of the day. Eventually Stephan Lichtsteiner was booked for a brutally cynical drag back on his neck. There are others to step up. It was his reluctance to look for the ball deep in midfield and do what he does best, jink toward goal, teasing and tormenting far bigger defenders and creating chances and winning fouls.

"But the next game is now more important", he added of their next match with Sweden.

However, Brazil was never able to get out of first gear and they were duly punished in the 50th minute.

Brazil tried their utmost to break through but were lacking a cutting edge.

The start to the FIFA World Cup has been terrific.

Brazil coach Tite, who masterminded a dominant qualifying campaign that saw the "Selecao" finish 10 points clear of their rivals, said Neymar was "not 100 percent". This year's Brazil squad is stacked with talented strikers as usual, while top-ranked Germany is a threat to become the first repeat victor since Brazil went back-to-back in 1958 and 1962. But Tite could have insisted that his man was feeling better than ever and ready to lead Brazil once again.

It is expected that Tite will stick to this policy of not committing to one captain for the duration of the tournament, in which Brazil are one of the favourites to lift the trophy.

Coach Tite, who is likely to be without Manchester United-bound midfielder Fred due to an injury suffered in training, feels Neymar has shown some positive signs of recovery but also expressed the need for caution.

But while he wasn't in peak form, Neymar seemed absolutely desperate to prove that he was.

Who will join them this summer? "We have to face him as a team". "That's why the first half was like it was and Mexico obviously deserved to win it".

There are certain trademark things that certain footballers do that you just know they're going to do but somehow when they pull them off it doesn't blow you mind any less.
