Switzerland are in a strong position to reach the knockouts despite losing 1-0 to Brazil in their second game.

The Swiss have lost only two of their last 13 group matches at the World Cup but this was not a high-octane affair, with no attempts on target by the team and Brazil taking the win through Casemiro's late strike.

"I can't really blame the team, it did a good job for quite some time," Switzerland coach Murat Yakin said through a translator. "I don't think it's a disappointment. We have a lot of good takeaways here. The next game is something we have control over."

Now sat second in Group G with three points, Switzerland take on Serbia in their final group game on Friday. Win that and they will progress to the knockouts.

All eyes will be on captain Granit Xhaka to see whether he can bring his excellent form at Arsenal to the tournament. Both Shaqiri and Xhaka impressed our readers, with Xhaka being the highest rated player on the pitch with Shaqiri not too far behind.

What is Switzerland's World Cup record?

The squad finished qualification two points clear of Italy to book their spot in Qatar, reaching their 12th World Cup since their debut in 1934, four years after the tournament was founded.

Switzerland have reached the quarter-finals three times, but not since 1954 when a home crowd pulled them through.

The last four editions saw the team knocked out in the Round of 16 three times, and the group stage once.
