Neymar of Brazil reacts to a missed chance during the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group E match between Brazil and Switzerland at Rostov Arena on June 17, 2018 in Rostov-on-Don, Russia.

The Barcelona playmaker scored a superb opener but Brazil were pegged back by Switzerland their World Cup opener, as Steven Zuber headed in from a corner to earn a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

The result that ended Brazil's nine-match winning streak in openers left the national team two points behind group leader Serbia, which defeated Costa Rica 1-0 earlier Sunday.

Brazil travelled to Russian Federation after a triumphant set of results in their warm-up matches but were disappointing in their Group E opener on Sunday as a very solid Swiss side showed why they are now sixth in the FIFA rankings, reports Xinhua news agency.

Brazil is now on a three-game winless streak in World Cup play after being thrashed out 7-1 by Germany in the semifinals and 3-0 by Holland in the third-place match in 2014. The pressure will now be on Brazil to kickstart their campaign when they face Costa Rica on Friday.

AgenciesSwitzerland were never regarded as one of the pre-tournament World Cup favourites but after they thwarted heavyweights Brazil with a gutsy 1-1 draw in their Group E opener on Sunday, they could be dreaming of a deep run in Russian Federation. Switzerland survived a Neymar free kick and another corner kick in the final minute of stoppage time.

Liverpool's No.9 was introduced 12 minutes from time at the Rostov Arena as Selecao coach Tite sought a late victor after Steven Zuber had equalised Philippe Coutinho's opener. I didn't see any bad fouls and there were too many yellow cards.

Meanwhile, Tite's opposite number Vladimir Petkovic said he hoped his team would get some deserved recognition for the hard-earned point after few had given Switzerland a chance against one of the favourites in Russian Federation. Or, should we say, he was rendered ineffective to an extent by some physical play by the Swiss.

"We have not travelled for the first game".

Neymar, who recently equalled Romario on 55 goals for Brazil, leaving only Ronaldo (62) and Pele (77) ahead of him, came into this World Cup with some unfinished business. "He's good enough to play very well".

Brazil need to improve on dead balls, said Tite. Such was the scale of his overhaul of the squad that the five-time world champions have only six players with World Cup experience in their ranks, as was the case four years ago.

"There is a concern about the first game, you want to win, you want to do it".
