BRAZIL LEAVE IT LATE
WIth Danilo sidelined and Bremer an unused substitute, Alex Sandro was the only Bianconero to participate in Brazil's late victory.

Three minutes later Alex Sandro was replaced by Telles as Brazil saw out the closing stages against the Swiss.
SERBIA LET LEAD SLIP

Dusan Vlahović remained on the bench. Serbia overturned Cameroon's advantage through Pavlović and Milinković-Savić in injury time in the first half.
