Brazil held to 1-1 draw by Switzerland in Group E opener

With 20 minutes gone, Coutinho gathered a clearance 25 yards from goal and curled a marvellous shot into the far corner off the post to give the five-times world champions the lead.

However, Switzerland, who had looked toothless throughout the first half, got back on level terms five minutes into the second period when Zuber rose unmarked to head home a corner kick. Roberto Firmino came on in the second half but failed to rescue his nation after his late header was saved by Swiss keeper Yann Sommer.

The result means that Serbia lead Group E after beating Costa Rica 1-0 earlier in the day.
