Brazil manager Tite admits that his side wasted a number of chances in their 1-1 draw with Switzerland on Sunday.

Brazil manager Tite has admitted that his side wasted a number of chances in their 1-1 draw with Switzerland on Sunday.

Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring in the first half with a trademark curling effort, which was cancelled out after half time by a controversial equaliser from Steven Zuber, who appeared to push Miranda before powering a header past Alisson Becker.

Tite said that his team could have been more productive in front of goal, but was adamant that the referee should have awarded a foul for Switzerland's goal.

"We had 20 attempts, but too many balls off-target," the manager said in his post-match press conference. "If we were a bit more concentrated, we could have made the goalkeeper work a little more given the number of attempts we had. We have to be cooler, a little more precise.

"Of course my expectation was a victory, I wanted to win, of course. Of course I'm not happy with the result.

"I'm just going to say this once: the Miranda moment was very clear. It's a very clear play, it's very, very clear. The second play, yes the penalty you could interpret, but the first one, you can't discuss. You have to be fair."

Serbia top Group E following their 1-0 win over Costa Rica.
