World Cup friendlies
Brazil 5-1 Tunisia
It goes without saying that five-time world champions Brazil will be a tough touchstone for Switzerland. The Seleçao showed that once they’re in the mood to play, it’s difficult to stop. In Paris Tunisia got under the wheels.
The numerous North African fans in the French capital made for ugly scenes. They tried to blind the Brazilians with laser pointers and threw a banana onto the field as the Brazilian players celebrated a goal.

At least Dylan Bronn was infected by this hostile atmosphere: he saw the red card before the break for a tough challenge against PSG superstar Neymar. Lucerne’s Mohamed Dräger played for the Tunisians until the 81st minute, Sayfallah Ltaief from FC Basel was not used.
