Casemiro scored the decisive goal as Brazil defeated Switzerland 1-0 to secure a place in the Round of 16 at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Brazil laboured for long periods in the absence of Neymar as Switzerland put up a solid defensive performance in the game.
Vinicius Jnr had looked the most likely to make the breakthrough and saw a second-half strike ruled out by VAR with Richarlison offside earlier in the move.
Casemiro latched onto Rodrygo’s smart flick from Vinicius’ pass seven minutes from time to hand Brazil all three points in the game.
The Selecao will meet the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in their last group game on Friday.
Switzerland – sitting on three points – will need a win in their final group game with Serbia to guarantee their progress.
