Eden Hazard went close to scoring in the second half, well assisted by former Blues’ Kevin De Bruyne.

Brazil drew 1-1 in their World Cup debut against Switzerland in Russia.

Chelsea winger Willian started and played the whole game but he didn’t really make an impact on the game.

Goals were scored by ex Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho, with an amazing shot in the middle of the first half, and by Steven Zuber, who equalised with a header on a corner in the beginning of the second part.

So now Brazil and Switzerland are leveled with 1 point in Group F, where Sweden and South Korea will debut tomorrow afternoon at 2 p.m.

With the Red Devils constantly linked with a move for the Brazilian star, here are some words from Willian“I was happy with my performance during the season, I played very well I always try to do my best and work hard” he told journalists.

Willian was crucial this season as he scored 13 goals from 55 appearances, coming off the bench in several games.

Chelsea have made an offer of €60m for Roma goalkeeper Alisson, reports from Italy claim.

The Brazil international, who is expected to be his country’s number one at this summer’s World Cup, has seen his stock rise dramatically after an impressive season with Eusebio Di Francesco side.

He has been heavily linked with Real Madrid and Liverpool in recent times, with both of the Champions League finalists thought to be in the market for new goalkeepers.
