Switzerland Boss Vladimir Petkovic 'Proud and Pleased' After Impressive Draw Against Brazil

Posted June 20, 2018

The coach didn't want to criticise the referee after Gabriel Jesus went down in the Swiss area in the second half, but he did say he thought Zuber had pushed defender Joao Miranda prior to the equalizer.

When Brazil's Philippe Coutinho curled the ball over a host of players in the 18-yard box and out of the outstretched palms of the Switzerland goalkeeper, patrons erupted in ecstasy but largely went silent when Switzerland Steven Zuber headed home in the 50th minute.

"In the second half, I told them to remain calm, focused, believe in ourselves and try and push higher up on the pitch and create possibilities and opportunities to score, and that's what we did".
