Brazil has sealed its pass to the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup thanks to a delicious late goal from Casemiro.
The Selecao thought they had gone 1-0 up thanks to a sublime shot from Vinicius Jr, but the VAR annulled the goal.
VAR ruled out the strikeout in the second half because of Richarlison, who did not touch the ball but was active on the play, coming back from an offside position.
And talkSPORT commentator for the game, Tony Cascarino, thought the decision was harsh.
“I don’t understand that decision at all,” he said. “Richarlison is not interfering with the game.”
But soon, the VAR verdict didn’t matter as Casemiro stepped up to save the day with less than 10 minutes left on the clock.
Vinicius’ inside pass was executed beautifully by Rodrygo, before the Man United midfielder hit him on the half volley to go past Yann Sommer – not bad for a defensive midfielder!
“What a fabulous shot,” said former Premier League striker Cascarino.
“He’s a bit lucky with the deflection, but he catches it beautifully.”
Casemiro’s goal enabled his country to overcome a close encounter with the Swiss and ultimately seal qualification for the round of 16, with them now six points atop Group G.
Meanwhile, Switzerland, Cameroon and Serbia have everything to do in their final group stage ties.
