Brazil complain to FIFA over non-use of VAR technology

Brazil complain to FIFA over non-use of VAR technology

It was Coutinho's 11th goal in 37 matches with Brazil. "It's for the referee to see it. I guess that will be normal [to be fouled regularly], we have to pay attention to it, but that's something normal in football", he told reporters after the match. Steven Zuber then headed in the equaliser in the 50th.

Brazil's next game is on Friday against Costa Rica, who lost 1-0 to Serbia in their opener.

Brazil went all out in pursuit of a victor and came agonisingly close to finding it as Coutinho and Miranda lashed wide from inside the area while Neymar and substitute Roberto Firmino were denied by Swiss goalkeeper Yann Sommer.

1,995 children separated from families at border under ‘zero tolerance’ policy
In the House, top Democrat Nancy Pelosi attacked the separations as a "barbaric" policy that "has to stop". The bill, a compromise between moderates and conservatives, is expected to be voted on next week.


Switzerland dominated the midfield for long spells against a Brazil team that had been keen to start with a win after its disastrous exit as host in 2014.

Neymar claims Zuber pushed Miranda before scoring Switzerland's equalizer.

Instead, Brazil's second most expensive player, Coutinho, pulled Tite's side's strings, constantly finding right-winger Willian and drifting striker Gabriel Jesus with sweeping passes although Switzerland managed to deal with the threat.

Trump falsely claims crime in Germany is 'way up'
US border authorities are executing the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy towards undocumented immigrants. Photos went viral over the weekend showing children being held in fenced enclosures at a Texas facility.


Miranda, Coutinho and substitute Roberto Firmino all had decent chances as Brazil hunted for a second goal, but they seemed to have left their shooting boots back at their training camp in Sochi. "We had 20 shots, but majority were off-target".

"Playing against Brazil and Spain, we demonstrated we could react, that this team always believes in itself and can get results". There was a lot of anxiety, too much pressure, and it translated into our way of playing. If we had more focus, we could have worked their goalkeeper more.

Brazil went to sleep and Switzerland were level.

Top Homeland Security Republican Demands End To Family Separations
"Rather than fixing the law, Congress is asking those who enforce the law to turn our backs on the law and not enforce the law". Last month, Homeland Security began referring all cases of illegal entry to the Justice Department for prosecution.


"I was hit and it was aching, but [it's] nothing to worry", Neymar said after the match, quoted by the Sun. "It's normal to do it after the match", team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said.
