Brazil shrugged off the loss of Neymar to injury for their final two group games by beating Switzerland to book their place in the last-16 in Qatar.
Brazil's star playmaker was ruled out of the World Cup group stage after tests on the sprained ankle he suffered against Serbia.
Against Switzerland it was far from pretty at times but Casemiro proved the unlikely hero, firing in with seven minutes of normal time remaining to make it two wins from two by the five-time champions.
The result extended Brazil's unbeaten run in the group stage to 17 matches, with 14 wins and three draws with a final group stage match against Cameroon on Friday.

Head coach Tite has outlined an attacking approach for his side for the tournament, too.
“There will be opportunities for all [Brazil’s forwards],” Tite said in an interview with The Associated Press. “Whoever is in will be deciding the match, all have to be prepared. Every match might require a different characteristic.”
Who is their best player?
Paris St-Germain pair Neymar and Marquinhos will both be key for Brazil, not forgetting Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr.
It was Richarlison who dazzled in their opening game against Serbia, though, scoring a fantastic overhead kick, winning the official man of the match award as well as rating highest in our readers' player ratings.
