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.

Chelsea need to sell Willian this summer to maximise his value, former Premier League goalkeeper and current ESPN pundit Shaka Hislop has claimed.

The Brazilian winger has been linked with a potential exit this summer after he struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in Chelsea FC team in the last campaign under Italian manager Antonio Conte.

Willian was in and out of the Blues starting team in their title-holders campaign after they won the Premier League crown in Antonio Conte’s first season in charge of the west London side.

The South American forward, now in Russia with Brazil to play the World Cup, was left out of the Chelsea starting line up the 1-0 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley one month ago.

After that, he published a celebration team photo cancelling boss Antonio Conte from it, showing his disappointment with the manager choice.

Anyway, Conte’s days at Stamford Bridge are counted, as former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri is very close to become new Chelsea manager, as reported in Italy.

Willian has been linked with a controversial switch to Manchester United in the current transfer window to reunite with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, with whom he’s got a strong friendship.

Chelsea star Willian has retreated from his recent Instagram post which hided manager Antonio Conte from squad-wide image of celebrations for the FA Cup Final win against Manchester United.

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.

“Sometimes to stay on the bench is difficult but I respect the decision of the manager”.

“I think it was that I don’t have nothing more to say about my club because now I want to have focus here on the national team and the World Cup.”

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

Chelsea winger Willian came off the bench in the FA Cup Final win against Manchester United at Wembley stadium.

The Brazilian star did not look happy as he played just a few minutes in the extra-time after replacing Blues’ goalscorer Eden Hazard.

Willian added fuel to fire by posting a squad-wide image of celebrations hiding manager Antonio Conte with some emojis.

The London Evening Standard reports the former Shakhtar Donetsk star, who has been repeatedly linked with a move to Manchester United, told ESPN Brazil: “Oh boy, do you really want me to tell you [about my relationship with Conte]? ? Let’s save it for the next interview.”

The Brazilian international said: “I’ve learned a lot in my time in England. I have been here for five years, so I’ve learned many things. English football is not simple and it is very different to others. I think it’s one of the strongest leagues in the world.
