Brazil earns an important point in the match with a 1-0 victory over Switzerland in FIFA World Cup 2022, Qatar. Casemiro’s goal was enough to secure the outcome, strengthening his team’s chances of winning the trophy for the sixth time. After a tense game, Brazil makes it out of the group. By joining France and Spain, Brazil has become one of only two countries to advance in this group stage.
It was hard work for Brazil to come back after conceding in the first 20 minutes, but they managed. They often looked ponderous without Neymar pulling the strings, while Switzerland held them off with their organized defense. Casemiro’s attempt gives Brazil their first goal to break the scoreless tie. Vinicius and Bruno attempt to play a one-two. However, Casemiro receives the ball favorably, and scores on the first try to give Brazil the advantage. They have now qualified for the knockout stages with success.
The midfielder’s name is known worldwide for his defensive skills, not the power in his boots. However, he produced a rocket to send the favorites into the last 16 with Germany. Casemiro was on the bench recovering from injuries when his country needed him. Luckily, the 83rd-minute rocket hit a sweet shot that scored an important win for the club.
Brazil had been labored and flat to open the match without their talisman Vinicius Junior. The team was unlucky until finally scoring, when Vinicius shot home for a goal in the dying seconds of the first half, but it was ruled off.
