World Cup: Swiss neutralise Selecao

Brazil were made to pay for slack defending and sluggish finishing, as Switzerland neutralised them after Philippe Coutinho’s stunning opener.

With Argentina drawing, Germany losing and France stuttering to a victory over Australia, it was up to the Seleçao to make their debut in this tournament, but ran into many of the same problems.

There were several Serie A faces on show, including Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, Inter defender Joao Miranda, Milan full-back Ricardo Rodriguez, plus Udinese’s Valon Behrami and Blerim Dzemaili of Bologna.

World Cup: Kolarov inspires Serbia

Roma full-back Aleksandar Kolarov scored the sensational winner and Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic impressed as Serbia beat Costa Rica 1-0.

This was the most Serie A-centric game of the World Cup so far, as Serbia had four Italy-based players in the starting XI. Costa Rica had one and it was Bologna defender Pipo Gonzalez who wasted an early golden opportunity by turning a free header over from a corner.

Serie A increasingly northern

Serie A is increasingly northern-centric, with 15 out of 20 clubs for the 2018-19 season based above Rome, while Emilia-Romagna have four sides.

The make-up of the 20-team division was confirmed with last night’s Serie B promotion play-off final, as Frosinone got the better of Palermo, 3-2 on aggregate.

They join Empoli and Parma, who were promoted automatically as first and second in the Serie B campaign.

This means 15 out of the 20 top flight clubs are based from Tuscany upwards, as Rome and below are considered the south.
