Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli saw their nation reach the last-16 of the World Cup after beating Switzerland 1-0, although Granit Xhaka's side remain well-placed to also advance. Casemiro's excellent first-time strike on 83 minutes proved to be the difference at Stadium 974, which saw the Selecao secure successive wins and ensure a spot in the top two of Group G, three points ahead of the Swiss in second. Jesus was introduced to the field on 73 minutes following a frustrating start for his side, who thought they had taken the lead when Vinicius Junior's well-taken goal was chalked off for offside in the build-up. However, the Manchester United midfielder's excellent goal finally ended the Swiss resistance, and ensure Granit tasted defeat for the first time in Qatar, who skippered his side for the entirety of the contest. He has the chance to guarantee a place in the knockout rounds on Friday, December 2 when they take on Serbia in their final game, knowing a win w

Times Sport added that the former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar, who also captained England at the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, was “key to the deal.”  He is a Qatari ambassador at the World Cup , possesses a relationship with PSG ownership after spending the latter portion of his career there, and like Messi, has a deal with Adidas. Per the report, PSG could attempt to bring Messi back and their willingness to do so could even hinge on whether or not he lifts the World Cup
