Serbia will face off against Brazil at Spartak Stadium-Otkritie Arena in Moscow on Wednesday, June 27 at 2 p.m. ET, airing on FOX. Serbia ended third on three points and are eliminated along with Costa Rica.

If they were entertaining, the PSG man with a coloured hair was at his usual best teasing the Serbian defence with his skill and pace on the left but wasted too many great opportunities in the end.

The South American giants suffered a setback in the 10th minute, however, when Marcelo was forced off with what appeared to be a foot injury, with Filipe Luis replacing him at left-back.

Here's how to watch Serbia vs. Brazil online.

It was another match where Brazil created lots of chances, but they weren't particularly clinical in front of goal.

The goal put Brazil back on top of their group, Switzerland having earlier gone ahead against Costa Rica, and left Serbia with an uphill task going into the second half.




Serbia enjoyed their best chance of the match four minutes later - Alisson touching a risky cross from the right straight toward Aleksandar Mitrovic whose diving header was saved off the line by a defender before deflecting back into the goalkeeper's hands.

Brazil conjured the opener from nothing when a beautifully lofted pass from Philippe Coutinho found Paulinho, who flicked the ball over Stojkovic's reach on 36 minutes to make it 1-0 at the break.

Antonio Rukavina, who started in place of the experienced Branislav Ivanovic, saw his shot pushed into the danger area by Alisson and the goalkeeper was relieved to see Silva stop Mitrovic nodding the loose ball home.

Silva popped up just at the right time for Brazil, and not only in defense.

The world most expensive player was denied at the death again by a sprawling save from Stojkovic after being picked out on the right by Jesus.

Brazil extend their FIFA World Cup group stage unbeaten streak to 15 games on their way to topping Group E.
