Brazil and Serbia played their first World Cup matches at the Lusail Stadium in Qatar.

Tite will be hoping to avoid disappointment, with the warnings being given by Argentina, who suffered shock defeats to Saudi Arabia to start their campaign, and Germany, who lost against Japan.

Beaten by the Albiceleste in last year’s Copa America final, the Selecao will look to make a comeback here after suffering a quarter-final defeat to Belgium four years ago.

Serbia have real quality throughout their squad and Dragan Stojkovic will probably count on Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Juventus’ Dusan Vlahovic to inspire disappointment here.
