Brazil overcame Neymar's absence to defeat Switzerland 1-0 on Monday and move on to the round of 16 of the World Cup.

Brazil advanced to the round of 16 in Group G with one game remaining thanks to a goal by Casemiro in the 83rd minute.

Neymar, a striker for Brazil, spent time at the team hotel getting treatment for a right ankle injury sustained in the first game in Qatar. Team physicians have not yet provided a return date or indicated whether he will return at all.

Brazil now has six points from its first two games, surpassing Switzerland's three. Serbia and Cameroon each have one point after drawing 3-3 earlier on Monday.

Switzerland needs a win in the last match against Serbia to guarantee its spot in the next stage. A draw may be enough depending on the match between Brazil and Cameroon.
