Neymar’s Brazil were held 1-1 by Switzerland in their opening World Cup game at Rostov-on-Don on Sunday.

Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring with a magical curling long range shot on 20 minutes, but Steven Zuber headed the Swiss back level five minutes after the restart.

The stalemate left Serbia, who had beaten Costa Rica 1-0 earlier Sunday, top of the Group E standings.
