Switzerland vs Brazil 1-0 Highlights 2013 Dani Alves Own Goal Video

Friday, August 16, 2013

Brazil full-back Dani Alves scored an embarrassing own goal to send them tumbling to a 1-0 defeat against Switzerland in a friendly, ending their run of six straight wins.

Alves put through his own net at the start of the second half to give the feisty Swiss just reward for taking the match to the irritable 2014 World Cup hosts.
Far from being overawed by facing a Brazil side who demolished Spain 3-0 in the Confederations Cup final in June, unsung Switzerland’s hard tackling and cheeky skills clearly unnerved the South Americans.
Xherdan Shaqiri produced an inspired performance as he upstaged Brazil forward Neymar, who was jeered several times by the crowd after falling over and failing to win a free kick.
Brazil won all five matches at the Confederations Cup and beat France 3-0 in a friendly before that tournament.
