Brazil had got off to the flawless start when Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho curled home a superb 20th-minute opener, but the Swiss responded with a display of real character and got their reward, despite a series of late scares, courtesy of Zuber's header.
"We always try to achieve the maximum, to win, that is obviously the case, we will do everything to achieve this".
"We have a lot of great players in the national team and each one of them has his own responsibility", Coutinho said.
AgenciesSwitzerland were never regarded as one of the pre-tournament World Cup favourites but after they thwarted heavyweights Brazil with a gutsy 1-1 draw in their Group E opener on Sunday, they could be dreaming of a deep run in Russian Federation. Tite's men ended as they had begun with a series of chances for a late victor as Neymar and Roberto Firmino headed straight at Sommer before Miranda dragged a shot inches wide.
Hoping to avoid becoming the first Brazilian squad since 1978 to fail to win its World Cup opener, the South Americans steadily cranked up the pressure and peppered the Swiss goal with shots, finishing with 21 shots to Switzerland's 6.
This is unfamiliar territory for five-time World Cup champion Brazil.
Throughout the game, Neymar was taken down again... "We know there is another two hard games but we don't fear anybody", the Stoke star said.

Brazil are incorrect with their assessment that Switzerland's equaliser in their World Cup Group E clash should not have stood, according to Xherdan Shaqiri.
Brazil lost their last two games at home in 2014; a 7-1 hammering by Germany in the semifinal followed by a 3-0 defeat by Netherlands in the third-place playoff game.
"They didn't give up, went the full 90 minutes, never gave up on themselves and when we were able to play forward and press high up, we did it very well indeed".
"I put it down to stress, first-match nerves, that's true for me too".
The talk of the match was much on Brazil's star man Neymar and how the Swiss tried to man handle him out of the match as he was taken down a total of 10 times. He's good enough to play very well.
The result means that Serbia lead Group E after beating Costa Rica 1-0 earlier in the day. "I guess that will be normal to be fouled regularly, we have to pay attention to it, but that's something normal in football".
