Serbia vs. Brazil - Football Match Report

Serbia ended in third place on three points and are eliminated along with Costa Rica. The effort was there, and the potential in this largely young team, who played for each other, was there to see - particularly early in the second half.

Brazil started the game with a sense of urgency and looked a lot more enterprising than they did against Switzerland and Costa Rica.

As Group E winners, Brazil will now face Mexico in Samara on Monday, with group runners-up Switzerland taking on Sweden in St. Petersburg on Tuesday.

Aleksandar Mitrovic is hoping the fear of failure will pile the pressure on Brazil and provide Serbia with a route through to the World Cup knockout stages.

Barcelona's Paulinho and Paris Saint-Germain's Thiago Silva scored the goals but it wasn't always straightforward.

President Donald Trump's senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner says he has a new peace plan for Palestine and Israel. The paper said it had interviewed Kushner on the deal but said it will publish the full interview in its Sunday issue.

A second goal demoralised Serbia as Brazil regained their fluency, the influential Coutinho seeing a fine shot deflected narrowly wide and Stojkovic twice denying an onrushing Neymar, as they closed out the win with relative ease.

Neymar wasn't far away from doubling their lead on the stroke of half-time with a curling shot from 20 yards out that dipped just over the goal, after combining with Luis on the left.

Serbia again set off alarm bells moments later, but some desperate Brazil defending was enough to keep them out.

Mitrovic was presented with a golden opportunity to equalise four minutes later after Alisson punched a cross from the right straight at the striker, whose header came back off Silva and rebounded into the keeper's arms.
