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.
Cameroon would have been eliminated if Switzerland beat Serbia. Could qualify with a win against Brazil if Switzerland/Serbia draw or if Serbia wins, but only if they win a tiebreaker.
