Brazil in an unusual spot after a draw to open World Cup

SOCHI, Russia --- This is unfamiliar territory for five-time World Cup champion Brazil. The last time it didn't win its first game in a World Cup, Pele had just retired from soccer. The "Selecao" had won every one of its opening matches since 1978, a year after "The King's" farewell. Brazil drew Sweden 1-1 back then, the same score of its match against Switzerland in Rostov-on-Don on Sunday, when all the hype surrounding Neymar and his teammates turned into disappointment and concern. The result that ended Brazil's nine-match winning streak in openers left the national team two points behind group leader Serbia, which defeated Costa Rica 1-0 earlier Sunday. One of the main title fa...Keep on reading: Brazil in an unusual spot after a draw to open World Cup.....»»
