There is a lot of soul-searching going on in Argentina this morning following their 3-0 capitulation against Croatia last night. While the Albiceleste aren’t completely out of the Cup, they are on the outside looking in at the moment.

For Brazil to avoid a similar fate, they’ll have to put the struggles of the first game behind them, a 1-1 draw with Switzerland, and concentrate on putting the minnows of the group, Costa Rica to the proverbial sword. Group leaders Serbia and Switzerland play in today’s late game, so Brazil are free and clear to hammer the Ticos.

Willian, as usual starts.
