Fred and Eder Militao have replaced the injured Neymar and Danilo in Brazil’s squad for their World Cup Group G match against Switzerland on Monday.

Neymar and Danilo were ruled out of the group stage with ankle injuries sustained in the team’s opening 2-0 win over Serbia.

Brazil coach Tite went for power over finesse, opting to pair Fred with his Manchester United teammate Casemiro to bolster the midfield, pushing Paqueta into a playmaking role, rather than bringing Rodrygo up front with Vinicius, Richarlison and Raphinha.

Real Madrid’s versatile central defender Militao will replace Danilo at right back.

Swiss coach Murat Yasin made one change to the team that started the 1-0 win over Cameroon with Fabian Rieder replacing Xherdan Shaqiri.

Teams

Brazil:

Alisson; Eder Militao, Thiago Silva (c), Marquinhos, Alex Sandro; Casemiro, Fred, Lucas Paqueta; Vinicius Jr., Raphinha, Richarlison.

Switzerland:

Yann Sommer, Silvan Widmer, Nico Elvedi, Manuel Akanji, Breel Embolo, Remo Freuler, Granit Xhaka, Ricardo Rodriguez, Djibril Sow, Ruben Vargas, Fabian Rieder.
