Brazil vs Switzerland wraps up 2018 FIFA World Cup soccer games on Sunday in a potentially lopsided match.

Philippe Coutinho gave Brazil the lead in the 20th minute with a volley that bounced in off the right post.

Spain are also yet to win after being drawn 3-3 by Portugal, while Lionel Messi's Argentina could not find a way past Iceland and drew 1-1.

However, the Swiss hit back soon after the start of the second half when Steven Zuber smashed a header home from a corner kick with Brazil players unsuccessfully asking the referee for a foul against Joao Miranda on the play.

Brazil had attacked down the left.

Coutinho's ability to score from range adds another attacking dimension to Tite's team, particularly when Brazil are finding it hard to break down defensively organized teams.

Since 1966, Brazil have scored 37 goals from outside the box at the World Cup - 11 more than any other team.

Hard to pick a standout individual, but the Barcelona man provided a world-class moment that should have sent Brazil on their way to victory.
