FT: Brazil 2-1 Bosnia

90'+3 Jonas replaces Neymar for the most pointless appearance you will ever see.

90' GOAL! Brazil 2-1 Bosnia An own goal from Hulk's low cross rescues Brazil. But, they will take little solace from the result.

89' Lucas almost bags a spectacular winner. A snap-shot from the edge of the box after two clever turns almost flies in.

88' Should be Bosnia's game. Dzeko runs at the defence, turns Luiz with ease, but fires over.

86' Lucas looks to have a chance from just eight yards out, but some great scrambling defence denies him.

85' A few successive corners for Brazil. The Bosnia defence deals well with them all though.

83' Lucas immediately looks lively. Tough on Hulk though, who is already shifted from his preferred position.

82' Marcelo and Neymar link well down the left once more. But, no chance comes of it. One of the few bright points for Brazil.

81' Lucas Moura replaces Leandro Damião. Hulk moves to centre-forward.

80' A whole series of subs seems to have disrupted Bosnia, but Brazil not taking advantage.

79' Elias  looks for Damião with a long, raking ball, but it is too long for the Internacional striker.

77' Hulk goes down in the area, but a free-kick is given against the Porto man.

76' Better from Brazil as Neymar looks to link-up with Marcelo. Unfortunately the ball runs too far for the full-back.

75' Dani Alves crosses from the right, looking for Damião, but the ball is headed clear.

73' Neymar goes close for Brazil. He really should score after some fine build-up, but his shot is too close to Begovic. Pass from Fernandinho was divine.

71' Marcelo cuts in from the left and beats his man, but his right-foot shot is blocked before reaching the keeper.

70' Fernandinho has been without doubt Brazil's best player. It says a lot.

69' Daniel Alves has a free-kick opportunity from 25 yards, but it is high and very wide.

68' Hulk on for Hernanes now. Not a great night for the Lazio player.

66' Marcelo creates a chance, as a cross from the left finds the head of Damião. Tough chance, not taken.

65' Neymar tries to priduce the magical, but there is too much being expected of him in this side.

63' It has been all Bosnia in recent minutes. What are Brazil doing here?

62' Ronaldinho has done his chances of a future call-up significant damage here.

61' Ganso coming on for Brazil. He will replace Ronaldinho.

58' Misimovic now goes close for Bosnia. This is getting worse and worse from Brazil.

57' Elias on for Sandro then. Little change in set-up.

56' Elias readying himself for Brazil. Positive move? Can't see how...

55' Dzeko now fires a left-footed shot across goal on the spin. Brazil must improve.

53' Nice work from Bosnia in the left back position sees a dangerous ball fired across goal. Warning signs for Brazil.

51' Lovely play from Neymar, cutting in from the left and firing a shot on goal. Straight at Begovic unfortunately.

49' Bosnia start to look dangerous once more down the left, but good defensive work from Fernandinho tidies up.

48' Good pressing from Damião wins the ball back though, as the striker forces Begovic to kick the ball straight out.

47' That said, there are a host of players warming up. Maybe he has given them five minutes to turn it around. Bosnia in possession though.

46' Second-half underway...

46' Mano has bottled it. The same eleven players return.

Brazil are ready to come out once more. No news on changes yet.

On a positive note, a goal for Marcelo is a sign of the next few years for the Seleção. Link-up with Dani Alves from the right flank was the decisive factor. Two top class players.

Mano Menezes has to get the team back to what they were doing initially. Calm play in midfield and using the flanks. It will pay off.

First-half not impressive then. What changes would you make? Ganso on? Lucas Moura? Would you sub David Luiz?

45' HALF TIME Brazil 1-1 Bosnia

44' Julio Cesar has to make a good save to deny Bosnia, as Ibisevic beats Luiz with ease and gets a shot away.

43' What he does is hit the wall. Poor from the anonymous midfielder.

41' Neymar wins a free-kick 30 yards out. What can Ronaldinho do?

39' Brazil have more possession in midfield. But, Bosnia proving a stubborn opponent now. Good strength to come back after a poor start.

37' Damião fires over from range. Brazil need to sure up against the counter. Sandro can do better in front of the defence.

35' Down the other end comes a great chance for Misimovic, who fires well over the bar after good work down the right.

34' Begovic comes off his line to claim a shot heading for Damião. Good keeping.

33' Bosnia look to counter though and Dzeko fires over from the right.

32' The Chelsea man returns as Brazil enjoy sustained possession in midfield.

30' Luiz getting treatment on the sidelines and the match continues. Luisão warming up for Brazil.

29' Davis Luiz is down and looks in pain. Bad news for Chelsea fans if he goes off...

28' The ball almost falls to Brazil in the area after a good run from Neymar, but won't quite sit for Hernanes. Daniel Alves then fires at goal from 25 yards producing a save from Begovic.

27' Little sign of Ronaldinho so far. Should Ganso be in? Would he do any better?

26' Good play from Leandro Damião, holding-off a defender before shooting at goal left-footed.

24' Brazil settling again now. Fernandinho has been integral to the side so far.

23' Hernanes drags a shot wide from 25 yards. Not great for a player of his standards.

22' Misimovic wins time to get a shot away with a smart dummy, but fires over the bar.

21' Brazil getting forward in numbers, but always leaving space for the counter. Bosnia hopeful.

20' Incredible stuff. Fernandinho plays through Damião, but Begovic makes a good save. Looks like Hernanes will score the rebound, but he is denied by a last-ditch tackle.

18' Brazil need to calm down again. If Ronaldinho is to prove his worth, he needs to use his experience now.

16' Bosnia look to release Ibisevic, but offside given. Worrying for Menezes.

15' The Twitter post-mortem continues and the sting has been taken out of Brazil's play. Bosnia equals for the moment.

13' GOAL! Brazil 1-1 Bosnia - Ibisevic scores as David Luiz allows a shot and Julio Cesar messes up the save. David Luiz messed up the pass initially, then backed off to well within his area. Cesar got two hands to the ball, but it still went in.

12' Fernandinho does a good job job of sweeping up in midfield. Sandro and Fernandinho playing deep at the base.

11' Brazil attacking once more, with Hernanes linking up with the forwards high up the pitch.

10' The resulting free-kick from the left of the area is wasted by Ronaldinho. Poor that.

9' Neymar races forward and is fouled by Spahic. Cue complaints from several Brazil players looking for a card.

8' To give them their dues, this is a decent response from Bosnia. Keeping the ball in midfield for a while at least.

6' They finally have the ball at least, making their way into the Brazil half. Brazil have stunned them early on here.

5' How can Bosnia respond then?

4' GOAL! Brazil 1-0 Bosnia - Daniel Alves makes his way into the centre, then feeds the ball through for left-back Marcelo to drive low past the keeper.

3' All Brazil possession so far. No real attacking impotus though.

1' Straight-away Brazil take their time and keep the ball at the back. Everyone getting a touch.

1' Brazil kick-off in St Gallen.

19.04 Ok, we are going to have a minute's silence. Not quite sure why, but we are anyway.

19.01 Anthems are done with, we should be underway in minutes. Thiago Silva captain of Brazil for tonight's game.

18.59 National anthem time. Bosnia up first.

18.58 Twitter - @snap_kaka_pop - "Brazilian commentator Galvão Bueno: 'Up front for Bosnia, a player who's doing well for Manchester United - Edin Dzeko!'"

18.57 The players are in the tunnel. Big night for Hernanes in the Brazil midfield. Can he finally prove his worth for Brazil?

Twitter - @craigmcatee1 on Ronaldinho - "Ridiculous. Nothing to offer at 2014 world cup. Worth blooding Willian or Oscar in that role?"

18.52 Ronaldinho's involvement has attracted derision from many quarters, including a stinging attack from Lance! yesterday. Read more here.

18.50 Brazil have won their last five fixtures; their best run under Mano Menezes' tenure. Yet, opposition such as Egypt, Gabon and Costa Rica were not designed to threaten the Seleção.

18.47 It won't be easu for the Seleção though, with a strong Bosnia line-up capable of doing damage if given the chance to impress by Brazil.

18.46 Big news for Brazil then is the inclusion of Ronaldinho, with Ganso on the bench. Sandro comes into midfield in the absence of Lucas Leiva.


BRAZIL: Júlio César; D. Alves, D. Luiz, T. Silva, Marcelo; Sandro, Fernandinho, Hernanes; Ronaldinho, Neymar, L. Damião

BOSNIA: Begovic, Spahic, Papac, Jahic, Misimovic, Medunjanin, Pjanic, Rahimic, Lulic, Dzeko, Zahirovic
