Setting the scene

Brazil had already qualified for the knockout stages and were guaranteed to top the group with a win or draw against Cameroon, or if Switzerland failed to beat Serbia. If Brazil lost and Switzerland won, the group winner would be determined by goal difference and subsequent tiebreaks if necessary.
