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."
