2022 Qatar: Casemiro Lone Goal Enough To Send Brazil Into Quarters

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Brazil midfielder Casemiro late goal was enough to give Brazil a 1-0 victory over Switzerland that sent them into the World Cup knockout stage with a game to spare.

The game had been heading towards a goalless draw when the Manchester United midfielder scored seven minutes from stoppage time to take Brazil to six points and on top of Group G.

The absence of injured striker Neymar had hung like a shadow over a shoddy Brazil, with only a disallowed goal by Vinicius Jrbringing their huge support to life before the goal.

Brazil have six points, Switzerland three and Cameroon and Serbia, who drew 3-3 earlier on Monday, have one each - with all three teams still in the hunt to progress.
