Austin Okocha believes Switzerland have a clue on how to survive Brazil’s onslaught at the FIFA World Cup.
The Brazilian needed a deflected strike from Casemiro to beat the Swiss who put in a spirited effort, and were unlucky not to get a point from the game on Monday.
“There is [joy] playing for one’s fatherland. Switzerland have shown us today that if you find a way to play against Brazil, you might get something out of the game.
“When it gets to the knockout stage, all you need is to get it right on the day and you might cause an upset.” He said.
The Bolton Wanderers legend, also praised Casemiro for digging deep to get the goal out of nothing.
“Every striker will be proud of that goal. He has got it in his locker.There was a deflection, but he’ll take it any day,” Okocha said onSupersport.
“I mean he was on target as well, but you can see from the keeper’sreaction that it was a deflection.”
With the result, Brazil are through to the round of 16, while Switzerland remain second on the table with three points.
Brazil will face Cameroon, while the Swiss will slug it out with Serbia in the final game.
