    Word from the ground

    Let's hear from SunSport's man on the field Phil Thomas after Brazil's dramatic winner over Switzerland:

    Brazil spent four days insisting they had enough superstars to not to notice the absence of Neymar – but no-one thought that the hero would be Casemiro.

    Yet that was exactly the case, when the midfielder best known for his defending than the dynamite in his boots produced an absolute rocket to send the favourites into the last 16.

    Casemiro’s last goal for his country came in a qualifier against Ecuador nearly two years ago. He had five in 65 games going into this Group G clash.

    But never will he hit a ball with more power and precision than the 83rd minute rocket which arrowed past Yann Sommer to snatch a win most had all but given up on.

    Without their talisman Brazil had been laboured and quite frankly flat for long, long periods. Yes, they had the ball in the net from Vinicius junior, only to be denied by bad luck as much as bad judgment.

    But by their magnificent standards they had been poor. Proof in fact, that while Tite tried to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes by saying they could cope without Neymar, the truth was far different

    FT: Brazil 1-0 Switzerland

    Brazil defeated Switzerland at the 974 Stadium and punched their ticket to the 2022 World Cup's Round of 16.

    The Brazilians thought they opened the scoring on 64 minutes when Casemiro's brilliant through ball found Vinicius Junior down the left and the forward beat Yann Sommer with a fine finish.

    But a VAR check found Tottenham star Richarlison was offside during the build-up and the goal was overruled.

    However, the Selecao wouldn't be denied and broke the deadlock after 83 minutes.

    That is when Rodrygo played Casemiro inside the area and the Manchester United star fired a powerful shot from a difficult angle to seal the three points
