In preparation for Brazil's group stage play, Canary and Blue has spoken with freelance journalists who cover these nations to get insight on the supporter mindset, and how the country may fare against the seleção.

They discuss Swiss tactics under Vladimir Petkovic, the power of Xherdan Shaqiri, and offer predictions as to how Brazil v Switzerland may play out on June 17th.
