Both teams showed early attacking intent, although Brazil settled into the game better as the half wore on, exerting more control over the ball as they started to work openings, including when Neymar saw his shot palmed away by Vladimir Stojkovic when well-placed in the box.

A Seleção dictated the pace of this game for large parts, although it should also be acknowledged that they were under major pressure when Thiago Silva popped up to head home that decisive second goal.

It was Paulinho's eighth goal since Tite took the helm in 2016 and brought his former Corinthians star back into the set-up, with only Neymar and Gabriel Jesus (10) scoring more for Brazil in the same timeframe. On the hour mark he failed to clear well a cross that put the ball on a plate for Mitrovic and the shotstopper was fortunate that Thiago Silva was on hand to clear.

"Costa Rica and Switzerland have shown that they can play with Brazil and I am confident that we will knock them out".

He may not be the most elegant, or technically gifted, player at the World Cup, but Mitrovic will certainly make life hard for the Brazil defence.

Filipe Luis replaced him, and the Atletico Madrid man ensured that Marcelo, for all his qualities, was not missed.

"We don't live by expectation, we live by reality", Brazil coach Tite said when asked how he felt about his team now being tournament favourites.

Brazil will have five days before taking on Group F runners-up Mexico, who were stunned 3-0 by Sweden in their final group game on Wednesday.

Mitrovic was presented with a golden opportunity to equalise four minutes later after Alisson punched a cross from the right straight at the striker, whose header came back off Silva and rebounded into the keeper's arms.

That gave Brazil the breathing space they craved, and they noticeably relaxed with the two-goal cushion as Serbia ran out of ideas and steam.
