“Other players manage to reach the level he is at and I hope they get there. Yes, we miss Neymar, we miss him. He has a lot of creative power, he is very effective so we miss him, yes, but there are other players who can seize the opportunity. said Tite quoted by Sky Sports.

“Obviously Neymar has a different skill set. He’s a player who in a magical moment can dribble past you and all of a sudden you say, what happened here? He has this skill” expressed the coach.

Neymar was ruled out of the game after injuring his ankle in Brazil’s first World Cup game against Serbia.

Earlier, Brazil confirmed a place in the Round of 16 after beating Switzerland after Casemero’s late winner in the 83rd minute at Stadium 974 in an ongoing FIFA World Cup Group G match.

Brazil seemed to miss the panache provided by Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) star Neymar as he repeatedly tried to sneak through Switzerland’s tenacious defense to come back scoreless. Switzerland were saved by VAR once when Vinicius’ goal was ruled offside, but Brazil penalized them with Casemiro’s superb shot to secure a victory.

In their first match, Brazil beat Serbia 2-0 while Switzerland beat Cameroon 1-0. Brazil top the Group G points table while Switzerland sit third.
