Brazil team complains about pitch quality of Stadium 974




 

STORY: Goalkeeper coach Claudio Taffarel said the Brazilian staff inspected the pitch before the match with Switzerland and found it to be in a bad shape.

'The pitch, we inspected it before the game, it really caught our attention that it was not perfect. Other teams had played there a lot, so it is a pitch where the ball goes very fast, making it difficult to control the ball, as we saw in some moments of the match. The players can manage these adversities during the match.'

The Brazilians, still without their star player Neymar, have one last group-stage match to play against Cameroon on Friday (December 2).
